    I saw on a couple of build threads that the toyota headlights were changed out with Sylvania Silverstar Headlights. It seems like an inexpensive mod. My question is how much brighter are these lights?

    Browse through the lighting section. Lots of info and pics about headlights in there.

    The silver stars are nice, and definitely better than stock. My GF has em' in her Jeep. I have Nokya bulbs in my truck with the heavy duty harnesses. The light output is great and has a slight tint of blue like some xenons. I have a little harder time seeing at night which i was i bought them. I had HIDs in my Cobra and got flashed constantly which is why i didn't go that route.

    I have also head that Osram Nightbreakers are pretty good, you might want to check those out as well.

    I can take some pics of mine if you'd like, lemme know

    I put them in (got them cheap)... They were better than stock but not for $50 better (normal price). Also, one already died within about 6mo... pathetic imo. I'm going to spend the extra coin to get some real results, HID kit. There's a group buy going on right now till the 15th if I remember right.

    If you really want bright headlights you should go HID. Check the link in my sig. I have sold a ton to members on here with great results! :)

    Yea I did use nitrile gloves to install... didn't matter apparently :/

    Coming from a lowered G35 with HID... even then I thought they were pretty bad but the taco's low beams are even worse. That said, high beams are pretty awesome (not that I can ever actually use them)
