    Search is not my friend...so please assist.

    Aftermarket lights for 2008 tacoma.

    What about white/blue lights for replacement bulbs for headlights and foglights?

    And what makes HID better than white light bulbs?

    Thanks for you time.

    HID supposedly provides more light with less power used.

    "Better" is a subjective thing. Personally, I'd say just go with some Sylvania Silverstar bulbs...they're white, farking bright, and only require a bulb change rather than actually mounting/wiring ballasts, etc. like HIDs do.

    Yeah they make em for the fog lights. Oreillys Auto Parts has them in my town, but Advanced Auto Parts says they do not carry the size bulbs for our fog's and said that they cannot get them in on special order or anything.
