    The Goods:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Everything is plug and play
    LOW beam, HIGH beam, And Side marker connectors
    [​IMG]

    The Turn/DRL harness is nice. It has an adapter harness to plug into OEM LED DRL vehicles(TRD,SPORT,PRO,etc)
    But if you have a base model(SR/SR5) just remove it and you will have your regualr 3pin connector for Turn/DRL/GND
    [​IMG]

    If you don't care for the sequential style turn signal, this is a bypass jumper to go back to standard flashing

    Here is my unbiased opinion;

    Build quality- 9/10 Molds are clean, plastic looks high quality. Better than ANZO/SPYDER almost OEM grade plastic.
    Fitment- 9/10. Everything lined up pretty well. Tiny gap near the hood/grill..but nothing major.
    Installation-10/10. Everything was PnP. The pigtail DRL/turn adapter will be nice for users with non OEM-LED DRL. The bypass connector for Sequential turns is a benefit as well
    Performance- I'll have to brake this down into a few sections;
    DRL: 10/10. Great output. Awesome intensity, even with the slightly smoked DRL lens. Great attention to detail on the lens design with the optic design to diffuse the light.
    TURN: 10/10. Same as above. Would have liked a little more amber, I'd say they are more borderline of "PC AMBER".. but awesome nonetheless.
    LOW BEAM: 7/10 Step is a little too drastic for my taste(reminds me of the D2S 4.0's) I would have liked a more subtle step like 5.0, or RX's. NO COLOR band:( While the cutoff is very sharp and clean.. it lacks that nice color flicker. Not a deal breaker..but I'm so use to it. After talking with Andrew.. they might tune the projector for a little more color in final production units.
    HIGH BEAM: 8/10 Decent. Very concentrated, but it works.

    Overall, these are the best "over the counter" drop in lights I have seen. You cannot compare them to retrofits as that's a different class.





    WELL here ya go folks. Don't hold me liable for any measurements. This is backyard redneck testing.(my. neighbors probably thought I was a little off:der:. All setups were LED. EXCEPT the stock headlight which has a halogen bulb. I wish I would have had an RX350 handy..but unfortunately not:annoyed:
    Draw your own conclusions.
    I tried to do an accurate comparison of DRIVERS side ONLY (keep it easier to compare). The XB kinda cheats because it has DUAL low beam projectors.... so I will compare it to my Bi-LED dual 3" retrofit. (that's only fair right?! :D)

    Onto some pics. 56K take a seat

    So yeah... it kicks butt. compared to stock and even the crappy LED OEMASSIVE/WINJET/ebay(all the same)


    But how does TWO of those perform compared to ONE of it's big brother; the MORIMOTO M-LED Projector?
    Here ya go: (yes I know both sides are on, it's the wifes car and I didn't feel like unplugging)

    Here is my last set of double Bi-LED 3" retrofits.

    I think you need to be an approved lighting vendor to do Group Buy's for lighting products. @tcBob

    I've been approved to sell lighting products on here and Tundras.com since 2017. I've already done group buys for the members Toyota members on here and several other forums. I took an absence last year as my son had past away. But I'm back now to help out my fellow toyota owners

    East coast about $25-$40. West Coast about $40-$60. These are only estimates.

    Very interested in these headlights however TRS currently offers 15% off already with the code "movinonup" and free shipping on orders greater than $100 within US which this does not. Also they're $1250 on the TRS website not $1280. That being said I think as soon as output results are in I will be making an order either way.

    Their 15% off moving special is not valid on the headlights. Also free shipping is not included in the headlights. But I did make a mistake on the price as it is $1250 and I will be correcting that, thanks for pointing that out!
