    my dad showed me these and said i should get them, and i actually think they look really good...only thing is, i got hits with high beams....so what happens with these headlights, cuz I'm assuming that the light reflected that would be closest to the grille is a high beam.... so how does that work???

    heres the link to the light casings: http://www.carid.com/2007-toyota-ta...cfl-halo-led-projector-headlights-315126.html

    The inners are the high beams, the outers are projectors. You aim the lights once their installed, the bulbs could be dead center in your grill as long as they're aimed right they will work.

    I think you would need one build for low and one build for high beams like on my honda, so you hi/low singe build you have wouldn't help........ but thats just my guess.
