    Yeah, I gots boost
    Will they "work"? Yes

    Do they suck ass? Also yes. Look at their cutoffs and high beam layout. Pretty poor from what I can see.

    the gallery section is an example of what bjorn did on my tacoma with the fx-r. the fx-r is a great performer right from trs but, when properly tweaked they are truly beautiful

    if you look at jvx drivers comparison for projectors he lay's them out very well both bi-xenon and standard low beams.

    the cutoff looks very similar to the G1 or the G2 projectors which are terrible if you going to spend the time and money to do a retrofit use quality components it makes a HUGE difference.

    I bought some of these awhile back (gen3s) I think. The cut-off was weird, crisp, but strange. I read somewhere how to mod them by expoxing some aluminum strips along the shied for a flat cut-off. Worked great, then discovered TRS and Mini-Mo DS2s and went that way before installing. The lights were bright, not sure about quality though.
