got PIAA lighting

just got my wedge and turn signal bulbs from Nopi Online and installed them... thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup grin grin

for the 1156, you have to sand down a small nub because it doesn't line up with the stock harness for the stock bulb...just sand it down with 100 grit and it'll fit thumbsup

they look awesome!!

I'll post pics when it gets dark out..
only bulb left to replace is the MTEC low beam with a PIAA Xtreme White Plus bulb thumbsup

PIAA high's are great...they light up so much

I just want all PIAA lighting...i can't compare the PIAA lows with MTEC lows until I get the PIAA..but i'll let you know thumbsup
as for now, i'm much happier not having those amber color bulbs and a different wedge bulb grin

Nice! The Celica headlights look beastly.


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

I'm blind... grin

nice and quick upgrade if you don't wanna spend the cash on HID's - personally I think an HID kit is the way to go, that way you don't have to replace bulbs every so often
