- Use the search available on the forum. Chances are that there's already a thread or post to answer most of your questions.
- Do not get HID bulbs and ballest in a non-HID OEM headlight housing, it is not meant for it and you will blind the fuck out of everyone.


EDIT: Oh yeah. Welcome to the forums and to the Celica/Toyota/TRD club. Come to ForumFest tomorrow if you guys can. It's in Kent from 10-5.

^Striker: I don't really recommend DDM tuning. They have some of the longest wait times if you wanted to RMA something. Followed their instructions and wasted 10 weeks and 4 bulbs to find that one of the ballast they sent me was defective.

You might want to try Mod Express here in the vendor section, but I suggest sticking with some halogens.

I don't recommend getting aftermarket headlights as usually, their build material is crap such as the plastic yellowing or cracking quicker than a regular OEM one.

And if you're that keen on getting HIDs, I recommend 35w h7(lowbeam) 4000-5000k for white with a tint of blue.

You can run 55w but I wouldn't risk it without a HID wiring harness.

Here's the link to DDMTuning which I use, but be wary of their sluggish shipping and RMA. But they do have "better" quality products for their price range.

with those headlights you bought off of ebay youll need H1 for high beam and H3 for low beam and there will be some modification needed to make the HID bulbs to fit.

55w HID kit will melt those housings
35w HID kit should be fine
