    I'm in the market for some new headlights, I'm tired of the OEM yellow lenses. I recently found these:

    Has anybody had any experience with these or something similar? I'm more concerned with the actual housings than I am the HID's, though I do want something brighter than stock.

    Any comments would be appreciated :)

    I'm not too fond of the aftermarket projector assemblies, the projectors they use tend to have a crappy cutoff, and the use of a halogen hi doesn't really match the look (my honest .02)

    Op id recommend getting a set of clear assemblies then retrofitting projectors into them. I have a full writeup of how to do it for 98.5-00 tacomas too :)
