    You rang?
    Actually i seen bogies tag, but i didnt wanna play lightman.... sometimes it gets old. Plus ill admit im not up to speed on the 3rd gen projectors.
    Mrs.jangles has halogen projectors on the camry tho.

    I still run oem housings off a 2009 or 2010 on mine with silverstar zxe.... they work just fine for me.

    Same here. I don’t have any problems with the OEM setup.

    I figured you didn’t want to go through the light thing again with the lack of response. You need a word document typed up like your exhaust post.

    Last night a riced out Honda was behind me with the brightest LED headlights I’ve ever seen. Even with the auto dimming rear view it was still bad enough that I had to move the mirror.
    It was low beams cause the fogs were on too. That’s the worst I’ve seen. My vision is fine and it messed with me. What about elderly people or those with slightly impaired (but correctable) vision? This could really cause people to have accidents. And for what? To see a little further? If you’re in a situation where you need brighter lights than you use your high beams, you don’t make your low beams brighter than the stock high beams.
    It’s common courtesy.

    Also, it’s a selfish, douche bag move to be ok with blinding others or to get a kick out of it.
    I hope anyone who mods their headlights to any ridiculously over bright LED/HID conversion never loses anyone close to them in an accident or is involved in an accident theirselves, but this is a great way to cause wrecks. It’s honestly as stupid as drunk driving or texting and driving.

    I agree and I don’t want those. I see other cars with nice white led’s that don’t blind. I was beside a 4Runner and liked theirs but it wasn’t anyone I knew....they didn’t blind me and weren’t overly bright but brighter than my stock ones on low.

    I’m referring to the overly bright, attention seeking, ridiculous, idiotic lights. The ones that someone who runs them knows it’s unnecessary but is trying to feel cool and get attention because their mother didn’t hold them enough when they were a baby.

    Not someone who wants something a little better for clearer vision. I’m ok with the stock stuff, if you or others aren’t that’s cool. Just don’t over do it and make yourself a rolling road hazard.

    Those are well known for leaking, fogging, inner clearcoat peeling, and having terrible optics with light output with hids being ALMOST as bright as oem halogen bulbs and housings.
    The op has 2017 oem projectors, this would be a massive step backwards for her.

    Thats also not an 04
