i went in to get my 10k checkup yesterday
and while i was waiting i of course went into the parts department....
and i found some light bulbs
the brand name was "Halo" it was a ring with the word in the middle
pricing ranged from $29.99 to $39.99 depending on color
they had like super white and stuff that looked exactly like the bright HID lights that the beamers have..

whats the difference? cuz online all the decent hid kits are like $100+
toyota sells em so i doubt they are gonna break any time soon otherwise they wouldnt sell em
only think i can think of is they arnt real HIDs? they had the ratings on there like 4500 and 6000 and so on

i wouldnt mind picking up a set of these...
there cheap and they give off the look of having the super white bright lights...
any idea how much toyota would charge for install? i guess i could email em
easy enough to do myself? or with the help of one of you?

i cant help but think theres some reason they are so cheap lol
im hoping that reason is small enough for me not to care so i can get em haha

lmk
thanks!

they are regular bulbs. they arent going to be as bright as HIDs.

Think of them like the Sylvania Silverstars. the kelvin rating just gives you the color the lights emit. I say save your money and get those hids doug is talking about.

u got a link to thoe 75 dollar ones?
i probably wont get them now but maybe next time i get paid for a website i can pick some up

do i have to take the light apart to plug these enw ones in?
or they slide out of the back? and then i jus plug the new ones in
i havent really looked at my headlights on my car at all.
maybe i should lol

I get mine from a whole seller that has a shop by me. All I did to install them was take out my old bulbs, put in the hid bulbs, cut a hole in the cap/cover for the back of the headlight, run the wire to ballest and then mount the ballest some where under the hood it is very simple he is a link to a great site to your hids too

www.SharpHID.com
