Now mod the non oem hid headlights to see if they're just as good as the oem hid? Save you the money of getting oem hid's.
You can't get more performance out of halogen housings, they already have a clear lens and they're actually amazing housings. I've tried tuning the stock housings and nothing more can come out of even with LED bulbs, which are brighter but throw light less light down the road. The only thing you can do is throw a HID bulb and that's it

In the process of upgrading and retro fitting my fogs
35w HIDs vs CREE LED units
Much better light control and wider beam pattern and instant on

Unlocked more performance out of the HID housings by playing with the reflector bowl location. Now it has an even better hotspot and more width :hump:

But I think this is the most you can get out of them. Happy with them now

oh wow, at first i couldnt tell the difference with the stock location vs modified bowl location. but looking at closer i really like how the cut off on the driver side is sharper and extends a bit more.

It's hard to tell without a huge picture and high quality but it's a noticeable difference in person, more usable width and hotspot. Was mainly looking for a more intense hotspot because the it's kinda lacking in stock form

I'd probably do the leds since the housings are already opened, you can always just turn them off if you don't like the added color.

Yeah think I'll be having Demon eyes
But they'll be linked instead of independent like in this video

After a bunch of fitment I can finally put this all together soon
Thinking of painting all the chrome a semi matte black

This Forum is totally dead but I decided to buy an old Celica instead of a "new Celica"

A legit ST205 Celica GT-Four, still have both Celicas. Should get them in a photo shoot.


What is life without the Celica?
