My normal bulbs sucked, I couldnt really see w/the low beams. So I got some HIDs from Mod Express but it seems like I'm still having the same problem. I'm getting these streaks in my light. It's hard to explain, just look at the pics. I tried messing around w/the aiming, but I dont think thats the issue. I feel like the light should be nice and even across the road. Not all spotty

I think thats pretty normal. Are you using oem headlights or aftermarket.

Thats normal. Mine do that as well and my headlight housings are stock. Its from the way the light output is projected through the lens. From your 2nd pic it looks like you need to adjust the beam upward. Hmm those rims of yours look awefully familiar to me...

Better projectors will probably give out more even light..

there's two holes that you need to cover with reflective tape before you install the bulb into the housing or you'll get that streaky effect. Zuoom once showed a pic of where you can cover it up at.

^^ that won't help with the streaks of light that only helps with the "ufo" looking lights.

Maybe you bought d2r bulbs instead of d2s. D2R are made for regular headlights without a projector and d2s bulbs are made for our projector type headlight. Also they look aimed right but do you have OEM headlights?

They are the Ebay black housing ones. Mine stock lights were too fogged up to keep, so I repalced em'. I'll try aiming it some more, I just found out you can adjust it from left to right. I didnt know that. But like I said, I dont think that will fix my prob. Why would toyota make lights like that?

The crappy projector of the ebay lights has been a known fact for some time now so you shouldnt have been surprised, but the clear+black top of the new headlights fits on the oem headlight base (oem projector, high beam and turn signal) so open them and swap, problem solved, swap the reflector also, our projector dont shoot at the ground directly they shoot at the reflector, the ebay one dosent spread the light as good as the oem one

So my options are: I can repalce them w/TSX projectors, but that seems to be pricey. Or I can find stock headlights and swap out the projectors. Does anyone know if there are any other projectors that would work beside the TSX. Like what is the size I should look for. I found some crossfire HID projectors for on ebay, I'm not sure if they are oem or just another ebay brand.
