    I want a set of dark black headlights and have narrowed it down to two. The BHLM ebay ones or some LED strip ebay ones. Opinions please!:D

    I have actually had both. If you are going to Retrofit anytime in the future, I would go with the BHLM or smoked versions. If not, the 2nd set with the Halos are alright. The light output isnt fantastic, but they do look pretty nice at night.

    Here they are installed on my truck, check out my build for more pics.

    imo, which is in my opinion only, they look terrible on tacoma's but people like them so more power to them

    I was going to throw some 6 or 8 K HIDs in them if that changes anyone's opinions.


    Where would I seal them at? Just along the sides where the lenses are connected by the small metal taps?

    If your going to do this go with 6k's, i have 8k's right now and the light output isnt very good. I mean you can see the blue but the light just doesnt carry very far with my retro's

    edit: and yes at the seams

    ive had both headlights and i changed my led one to a retro fit. overall i liked the look better and wanted to go with a full black housing. of course had to redo them cause water got in them. silicone wil do the trick. hope everything works out

    No headlights then. You get more light output that way over HIDs in a reflective housing.
