    I have the black ones!!! I love them csjumper and I put HID's in them and wired all of it up. Fairly easy to wire.

    The projector performance on those is horrible. I don't recommend looks over performance when it comes to lighting. There just is too much to risk.

    They look good, YES. The projector top line looks to have an almost "eyelash" effect which is nowhere as clean (perfect horizontal line) as my 2012 Highlander stock projectors. With that being said... with HID's installed, there is PLENTY of light, and MUCH better than stock or the brightest non HID bulbs in a non projector housing. I've been through literally 8 or 9 combinations of housings and bulbs up to this point. I can see great... and I never get "flashed" anymore. With my OEM's with BLHM and 55W HID's... people flashed me all the time. I may have had better side light... but that is it. If I need more light for off road... well a click of a toggle switch will cure that! :D

    I'm contemplating opening mine up and going BHLM. If I do, I want to turn the "BMW"rings green. I was trying to find the bulb to change it a couple weeks ago... but it appears they are internal.

    my OEM reflector w/ 85w bulbs and upgraded wiring would blow those projectors away...just sayin...even if you installed a cheap PNP kit....

    Focused light... being able to see far enough to dive with just the headlights and not blinding oncoming traffic... It works for me. Got Glare? Yup... and I only use it off road. I prefer my HID's in Projectors.... Had em in the stock reflectors... and can see just as far... but I'm sure your OEM reflectors are much better than my OEM reflectors were.

    NFS257, how did you wire up the HID's....our trucks only have the one connector for the hi/low beams and your aftermarket lights have the hi and low beams seperate??

    reason I'm asking is that I just got the same lights and want to put HID's in them but can't seem to figure out the wiring so that my hi beams still work (not HID's)
