are these headlights reliable?

Hey guys i am thinking about buying a set of the halo LED projector headlights with a 6000k HID kit. I would buy them from dashzracing. I was wondering if they are reliable headlights. Anyone have any problems with theirs? Also would it be an easy install for me to do myself?

Lighting is just as good as OEM, Halo's are garbage though. One of mine went out 2 months after installing them. I truly do like them though, I have the black set...but halos are disappointing. After the one halo went out I just disconnected the halos all together and left the LED's connected.

I love my reliable CCFL Halo Headlights from Dashzracing.
I haven't had any problems with mine. Good luck!
They look different and it adds sexy points to your CELICA.

I had a feeling the Halo's wasn't gonna last long. That's why I had a seperate switch to turn them off/on whenever I feel like it.

From the reviews of halo projector headlights (not necessarily from dashzracing but in general) the light output is lower than stock due to the projectors being subpar. Also the outer cover has a tendency of developing cracks.

I have never owned those headlights but this is based on what I've read on this forum.

i heard * mark heard, never owned one * that their plastic tends to crack because of the heat. By the way what's the light (cutout) pattern of the headlight ? *the ones that are one above the other ?

No problems with mine. Installed 11 months ago. No cracks; light output better than my OEM non-HID lights I had before. Halos still working great.

Sorry if this is a dumb question but how do you get a seperate switch to turn them on/off?

Put a relay and incorporate a switch between the positive line and the power source line (something like that) or put a switch right between the positive line and the power source line.

Additionally mine did have the outer plastic "shell/film" crack and peel off. Take into consideration I feel this only happened due to the extreme heat my car does endure down here in arizona, it gets to be about 110 here almost everyday during the summer.The actual lens though is fine. I just took a 3m headlight kit to it and it looks perfect. Anything slightly abrasive that wont leave tiny scratches, just something to take the film of will work though.
