Check it out.

This thread contains links to a few other threads that have the information you need to decide which color/temp. rating kit you need.

It also includes a few install guides.

Need a quick reference for different HID temperatures/color? I added a "quick-link" for that too.

Looking to buy? You got it. Listed are the current HID vendors here at NewCelica.org.

First and foremost:
-Lowbeams = H7
-Fogs = H3
-OEM HID headlights = D2S

You don't need HIDs for highbeams, and the Celica isn't a bi-xenon setup (high and low beams using the same bulb).

Installation Guides

--Install Xenon Depot 6000k HID Kit - Larry Dougherty
----Several headlight kits have different install processes, but generally, they are the same.

UPDATES!!!

The first post has been modified and simplified for easier information browsing. Also added is a list of current HID vendors, for the noobs who can't figure out who our current vendors are.


You may ask, "Why aren't the DDM and VVME HID companies aren't added on the list?" Simple, I am a NC.org moderator and they aren't NC.org sponsors. Besides, they got mentioned in this post, right?

;)

Updated:

Does temperature rating have anything to do with bulb life?
No.

Will 10,000k+ bulbs give me that BMW look?
No. BMW's do not use that high of a rating and that goes for any factory luxury car HID kits too.
Most models use at the most 4,300-5000k HIDs.

If it's not the bulb rating, then why are BMW lights purple?
Simple: Projector lens. Our lenses are meant for HALOGEN gas lights while factory HID cars are equipped with lenses that filters XENON gas lights.
That purple tint you see in the BMW's lights are from the cutoff and is a very sharp color.

If you were to compare lights side by side, going with a 10K+ kit will make the light completely reddish/purple while the BMW's lights are a bright white.

So, do you still think you're getting "BMW" style lights or just some poor visibility, ticket-warranting lights?
