    Just got LED interior lights and HID Head/Fog. I went with yellow HID fog lights to be different, since everyone wants HID white. The interior lights are just like the lights in a 2010 Lexus. This is on a 2010 Double Cab Taco. Interior glows great! HID Lights are even and well distributed. High Beams are the regular light.

    What you guys think? If you are interested and live in So Cal, I can refer you. There is a discount/group buy for 10 or more Tacomas. PM me if interested.
    Just need to know what year is your taco.

    I will post my LED reverse lights shortly.

    When you high beam, it is like the stock high beam color... the yellowish color...

    3K, and the color is a nice bright yellow. When you look at the Taco it seems white in color, but when they shine on the road or against a white garage door they are bright yellow...

    I don't see how a HID bulb will change color to a regular halogen bulb:confused::confused::confused: Also our headlights are a dual element bulb, you would have to install two bulbs into the headlight housing to get different colors.

    I agree do you have a special type of bulb that switches between HID and regular?

    Yes, exactly. It's a special type of bulb, not sure if it is new or not. Even just running the regular HID, there is no need for high beam, unless you are want to point at a higher specific point...

    Hard to explain, but it's two skinny bulbs that fit into stock hole with ballast.

    Here is a picture of the LED reverse lights... what a difference from the regular back up bulb, you can see more area with these LEDs!
