I am going to list and post pictures of most of the aftermarket headlights available for our cars. I need all of you to post your opinions and feedback about each one so we can hopefully make a guide for everyone who plans to upgrade their lights. And let it begin:

Oem Halogens
$50-100






Oem HIDs
$500-$1500 (based off of prices on our parts for sale forum)






Spyder Projectors with CCFL and LED Halos (come in black and chrome for both. Smoked are LED halos only)
~$250

Black with CCFL Halos:

Chrome with LED Halos:

Smoked with LED Halos:





Spec-D Projectors with LED Halos (come in black, chrome, and smoked)
~$300









Option Racing Projectors with LED Halos Style 1 (comes in black and chrome)
~$500-600 (dont ask me why)







Option Racing Projectors with LED Halos Style 2 (comes in black and chrome)
~$350








CG/Anzo Black Crystal (I do not know if they are projectors, but they can PHYSICALLY house HIDs. I don't know if they legally can.)
~$225






Dimension Lab Euro Black Style Projectors
~$250






Dimension Lab, TYC and Replace also sell halogen headlights but the look so identical to OEM its not worth posting. The are all ~$250, but could probably be found for cheaper.

Those are all the headlights i found from multiple websites, but Andyautosport.com and CARid.com had all of them for the best prices. The other sites just had the same lights for higher cost. If you found others feel free to PM me and i will add them or go ahead and add them yourself.

While I assume many of you are going to say to stick with OEM, the OEM HIDs are expensive and hard to come by, so the goal is to provide those who don't have the money to dump into headlights to have an alternative. If you have any of these aftermarket headlights feel free to post pics. Let the opinions begin and hopefully they will make this a good thread! Fire away!

You forgot JDM headlights and tsunami, and I think German OEM HIDs have better lenses

OEM HIDs are the way to go, no matter the region.

I would suggest TSX lense swap. Had them on my Celica, and they're pure sex.

Well this is good. I do need some opinions on headlights. My wife wants some for our celica and I can't decide which way to go. Price doesn't matter and I want a killer look. I do like the smoked out lens though.

Might be important to note that most of the aftermarket lights use cheaper quality plastic for the housings, which WILL crack and yellow much faster than OEM.

(my OEM was super yellow/milky with lots of cracks. and no, headlight restore did not work)

To add:
-Cheaper material will suffer when using HIDs
-Cheaper projector lenses = horrible light output
