    Listen to this man. Do not buy these. I made the mistake of purchasing them when they first came out and they are terrible. Stock halogens are better

    Morimoto is probably the way to go when it comes to having high quality aftermarket headlights

    I have LED fog/ bumper bar, I wanted to get away from the yellow tint and chrome backed look of the oem lamps

    I mean, if you really like the look and don’t care about performance, go for these headlights. Just giving my advice, I was disappointed because I thought light output would be improved over stock

    What would you guys recommend for Blacked out halogens headlights with DRL for a 2021?
    I've been looking for days but seems like the trend here is to go led or nothing.

    Hope you guys can point me out in the right direction.

    Thanks all in advance.

    You could open your headlights and paint them black for just the cost of spray paint. My opinion is there's no point in opening them up just for cosmetic changes. You can't go wrong with throwing in some RX-350 projectors.

    If anything it’s performance halogen except OEM LED or now Morimoto V2. That’s my go-to stance these days.

    Agreed. Good on them for iterating their product. It’s not my style personally and I think I’d take my chances on the OEM piece long-term for overall reliability, but I love that they released an improved product.
