Also note that the reverse lights have the same size wedge base (10 mm) as the front parkers, side indicators, number plates, but the wattage is different as is the physical size of the globe.

Well i think they all pretty much come from china.. Even the brand name ones. I dunno really Phillips or something like that. I'm not up with HID, i dont even know how to install them, i guess its just plug and play though, cant be that hard. I know i like how they get brighter when they warm up and go silly bright! That is mega cool and i like the bright colour too. a 10k kelvin would be awesome. So bright white/blue But so defectable

Isn't it something like 4800k the limit? The warmish yellow light. I had 6000k bulbs in my other cars and never got hassled. To be on the safe side I wouldn't go over 8000k that is going to be very white

HIDs require a projector (not reflector) and a spray nozzle (to clean the headlight lense) to be ADR compliant.

Tangcla on here (from Vic) sells the Philips HIDs. I know of another helpful vendor (from Syd) that do HIDs with installs and warranty. And of course I there's one that does Philips, installs and warranty for the WA guys as well. PM me if interested.

Edit: 13, anything above 6000K will look blue-ish, above 8000K will be purple-ish

I think ill go for 5000k as they seem to throw out the most light and are white. Anything higher is just less light and more canaries

Found it, my bad. 4300K actually has the most illumination. Even 10000K is still brighter than stock halogens.

If you go the route of retro fitting HID's in the Celica make sure you get the H7 spacer. 98% of HID kits do not provide them and the bulb will not sit correctly.

Standard H7 with mount on the left. Retro fitted H7 HID with H7 spacer on the right.

Im contemplating replacing most of the exterior lighting with LED bulbs. Anyone else done this ? Just thinking if the load on the circuit will still make the system flash correctly or if it will flash faster ?

I've done it. It flashes faster on about a 30% duty cycle. To make it normal again you'll need a load resistor each side somewhere in the order of 4½ ohms to emulate the same load as regular bulbs.

Sorry for the bump, but can we get this pinned?

It has been quite useful lately.

I want the lower fog lights to look similar to the new hid's. Question. Without buying the new fog light hid units, can i buy a bulb to resemble that? I know u can buy a xenon bulb but is it more blue than hid?

Xenon bulb will be yellow'er than HIDs if your HIDs are more than 4300k

Try LED for the foggies? Colour match at 6000k but not much useable light for fog penetration.

Actually, anything other than yellow is pretty much useless for fog duties.

Leave your main lights as halogens or hid and if you want adjust all the others.

Ok, so I want to change a few more to LED.

Purchased LED's for parker lights, license plate and trunk.

Dome light: Seeing as I have the moon/sun roof, I need the 57/293. Any recommendations on these?
