    Don't go higher than 6000k or lower than 5,000k!!! Get Bulbs and Ballast as I did,takes 20 minutes for left and right side ,east DIY Project,all are Good ,I spent about $40 for the kit ,cheapeer that Sylvania ZXE and muckh brighter too,I did fogs a month later , same DIY easy and $40 again !wire tie and tape with heat resistant tape away from radiator and eng areas ! Works great and bright a year later, I did 6,000K Fogs and Low/High Beam headlights ! All brands are the same and from china with German technology or you would slpend $1000 and up on each side !!!!!

    Heard good reviews about carid. Lots of good stuff at Ebay, just look at the reviews of the kit as well as the seller.

    Hi I have an 07 Tacoma, I bought a conversion kit made by brightsource LED which should be plug and play,
    Unfortunately when switched on low beam it flickers on to high beam. Any one have any solutions?

    hid days are past HID lights such.
    I recommend led conversation kits by opt-7 on Amazon.

    Hid don't last long they have to warm they have issues with lots of vehicle lighting cases they get real hot and if your vehicle has daylight running lamps it kills them.

    IMO, HID's get too hot for the headlight shell... Invest in some LED replacement bulbs. Same brightness , with less heat. Just my .2 cents and experience....

    I got my led conversion kit from carid. And I have no complaints it's a plug and play and a lot brighter than stock bulbs.

    "Superbrightleds.com" is where I got my LED'S from, and they are awesome, both lights, and the company... Of course, those are my fog light bulbs. I need to get some for my driving lights..... (coming soon)
