    Its a bicycle.
    the ones i've seen in person didnt seem at all poser-y. they actually seemed really well made. looked just like the beamer lights they are based on.

    im wondering on the price to, stock taco lights are pretty fantastic (at least in my mind... i can completely replace my headlights for 17 dollars...:() so i wonder how useful these really are. i'd love to see some before after light output info on these!

    I'm, really missing the point of these lights... arent I?!

    Lights are off Ebay I think at was $210 with shipping, headlights really look OEM quality, I was surprised on the quality especially for the price.

    I’m pissed, I drove with the lights on for about 50 minutes and the headlight plastic cover is melting right where the low bean bulbs are.
    Will update the post soon as I hear from the seller.

    Definitely no miss wiring .I think the bulb is too big in the headlight or the plastic/glass is worthless.

    maybe its a friction burn. you should try slowing down some. there is too much friction from the wind at the speeds you drive causin the plastic to melt!!!!!!!!

    You are in too something but not 100% right.

    I think the melting on my Tacoma headlights was caused by me re-entering atmosphere too fast with faulty heat shields.
