    ok, so try and picture my tacoma:

    black 08 Prerunner with matching bumpers & grille
    -blacked out decals/emblems
    -limo tints

    here is my question:
    do you like these halo headlights
    http://www.carid.com/2008-toyota-tacoma-headlights/halo-projector-70733.html

    or these 'euro' headlights (just looks like BHLM [i dont trust myself to do the BHLM!!])
    http://www.carid.com/2008-toyota-tacoma-headlights/euro-style-71042.html


    i'm at work right now and will post pictures in a few minutes so you can see what we're actually dealing with here.
    thanks.

    I'm looking at the same ones, but the Gen. 2s projectors, either way you can beat those prices on E-Bay by quite a bit.

    35% up front, 20% in the back window tint, 15" Mickey Thompson bullet hole wheels, with 31x10.5 Firestone Destination A/T tires. Glass Pack, High Flow Cat, S&B CAI, Custom Light Bar with 4 fog lights. 2 10" Rockford Fosgate P2 subs with 1000 watt Rockford Fosgate Amp, CB.
    Hope you like the halo's they look damn good, but everyone of my friends that have them say they aren't bright for shit, he rides around with his brights on all the time, I hope you have better luck! They look good for sure though. Bosses don't know much man!

    I'm in the same boat, I don't feel like I'll do a good job. I'm going to get a second set of OEM lights to mess with. If they work out, I'll mount them up, if not, I'll still have the originals.

    Good luck with the projectors!

    I really like that set-up! The color match looks awesome! I'm thinking about doing mine white, but I don't know how it'll look with white headlights and white eyelids...
