They're cheap, they look ricey as hell (IMO) and putting 12k HIDs in them is going to DRASTICALLY reduce your light output over even a stock bulb. 4300k is OEM, 6k is about as high as you'll want to go because after 6k the lumens start to really fall off drastically. Also, depending on the brand of your kit you can have bulb alignment/ballast issues or bulbs that don't meet the ratings. Which is why I avoided the DDM/VVME/Kensun kits when I did mine.

I know I sound preachy, but honestly I am sick and damn tired of being blinded almost daily now by ppl putting HIDs in junk housings or stock reflector housings. Like I said hopefully these projectors provide at least a cutoff line so that isn't you.

+1... I had them on my v6... They looked nice at night with the halo's but didn't last long. I had the black, not chrome. I also agree that they look ricey as hell, now that I have stock black ones. Mistakes were made.

Get black stock housings and put some halos in them.

Honestly your BEST bet for good lights is to get the OEM replacements from LRS but it's pricey at almost $400 and if your stock lights can be restored you might want to go that route. Or restore a good set from a JY car.

Yeah I feel like you could get a pair from the junkyard for a lot less. I'm sure there's plenty of them that have survived.

Cool I hope that I like them they seem to look really good and I bought it with the HID kit that it comes with so there won't be any HID bulb fitment problems. Do u like them?

You might be put the ppl who are in the oncoming lanes probably hate your guts. I'd like to see the HID cutoff lines on the projectors honestly but the HIDs in the reflector foghousings will glare.

I've said it a million times, HIDs in reflector housings are DANGEROUS. And ppl don't really flash hi-beams anymore because they know that the "bright *** lights" are HIDs and not hi-beams.

Halo headlights

I agree with Scotty. During the school year I do a lot of my driving at night on hilly mountain roads with no lights other than headlights. And when I am coming around an uphill turn and the guy in the other lane is blinding you with crappy HIDs I can literally not see where I am going and hope I don't veer too far off to the side.

It seems I have to go head on with 2-3 crappy HID cars every day going to work. I'm getting really sick and damn tired of it tbth... Do it right or don't do it at all. All you are doing is blinding incoming traffic and if they are not in projector housings then YOU can't see as well either because junk DDM HIDs in stock headlight OR fog housings are just spraying light everywhere and dimmer than a good high end halogen. Don't even get me started on the ppl using 8-12K stuff...

Look they are projector lights I have had the very similar lights before. The hids are in projector housings if u would have clicked on the link I posted u would have seen they are projectors. They have a sharp cut off line and will not blind people the ones I have now are 10k hid and before I broke the light they were perfect very sharp cutoff and no blinding the oncoming traffic. Do the research on the lights before u start saying they will blind people.

I was not talking about YOU specifically if you would read. I was asking you and Saleenfan to post a pic of the cutoffs because I was curious how these projectors did. I WAS saying that the HIDs (that at least one person stated they had in fogs) that are in reflector housings are a huge no-no.

I will state again. HIDs in NON PROJECTOR housings are dangerous to both oncoming traffic and the driver of the crappily HID'd vehicle. And if you do have projectors that are properly aimed then more power to you for doing it right.

OP, congrats on your purchase. I don't know anything about their quality but they look nice and good price.

I personally love the Raxiom halo projector smoked headlights and just received them. I plan on ordering a 35W 6000k HID kit to help with the light output.

Again, congrats on the purchase and enjoy your new mod. Please post pictures of your new headlights when installed.

Yup, they are. Just be aware that no matter how much you like the 10k color, that kelvin temp is dimmer than a halogen. 4300k is OEM 5k-6k is still good but after that the lumens really start to fall off quickly.

I ordered 35W 6000K for my HID kit. I think 6000k is nice and white.

6000k is white with a hint of blue. 5k is "hyper white". 4300k is "pure white". I have 4300k and they are very white and omfg bright. I made sure to buy a higher end kit though. No DDM/VVME here.

I agree about buying a higher end HID kit. I spent around 140 dollars for my kit. I didn't want the light to he real blue. A hint of blue is fine for me, lol but it seemed 6000k was popular.

Morimoto kit? I did the XenonDepot. It's usually around the price you paid but I got it on sale and a $25 forum discount code I dug up on a Lexus forum. 4300k and they are WHITE and super bright. OEM is 4300k and some of the OEM Philips bulbs will color shift to 4700k after a break in period. And all the good kits will have either a high quality aftermarket quartz glass HID bulb or an actual OEM Philips bulb that has been laser aligned during the re-basing process. The cheap DDM/VVME/Kensun kits are not quartz glass bulbs nor are they laser aligned.
