    I have an 07 Tacoma and am trying to figure out what headlights I want.. Its either the HALO LED's or the HALO HID's which I came across on Ebay.. What I really want is the blue Halo's but I have yet to see those for our truck. Do they exist and for how much?? Heres what I've been looking at, I want the bluest lights and lights that are actually bright.. Have pictures, please post..

    IMO they both look like ass. BTW, the terms "blue" and "bright" don't go together. blue by definition isn't a bright color. Anything above the color temp of 6000K and you lose a crapload of useable light. And if you go too blue you'll run the risk of being pulled over by cops.

    Are they LED ones still pretty bright? My friend has some but on a BMW and i was really surprised how bright they were.. If i were to get the HID halos i'd wanna get at least 8000 k's

    I went with these CCFLs. Like the output & they finished the blackout of the base face on my truck. Have had them for a coupla months without issue. The output of the lo/hi beams is great IMO.
