    I vote other, stock lights with BHLM and retro fit projectors. Probably the most expensive option but they look awesome!

    I'm with Pugga. But yes 6k HID and retrofitted projectors in stock headlights. Search tacoma black headlights on ebay to get some already blacked out ones..they look great. I say this only because thats the option/route I'm gonna go!

    Nah... There is definitely blue in the 6000k headlights. 4300k is white as it gets. 5000k is the best of both worlds

    Then do 4300k... That is maximum lumen output and is not blue. Solid white with a tiny hint of yellow.

    You do know you can get pulled over for having HID headlights at all, regardless of color right? Not a law that's enforced much, but HID headlights aren't legal.

    HID off-roading or auxiliary lights. Those are fine.

    On here Philips X-Treme and Silverstars seem to be getting good reviews. I'm going to Philips bulbs soon and Nokya yellows in the fogs:D.

    Agreed. I'd go bhlm w/ 4300 retros. Aimed properly, I really dont see you getting hassled too much. Its those annoying purple/blue lights that are shooting up towards the sky, blinding everyone on the road that draw all the attention.
