i love my new MTECs!

as usual isaac installed them for me and he showed me the diffrences between the stock and the mtec lights. wow, i never knew how crappy the stock lights looked until it was put beside the mtecs. i got them at a good price too but at $65 bucks i would have bought them anyway. my car is black and with the lights it seems to come alive more. the brightness is great..not too bright that it's annoying, it's just right. plus as isaac had said when driving the light doesn't fade out like stock and you actually see more of the road. i don't have the fog lights installed yet but even through my stock fogs and mtech hi/lo beams it looks great!

can't wait to finish the install so it could look like this:

Yeah, I got the same lighting package from Isaac as well. Great bulbs. The whole car takes on a change with the different lights. I could light up a football stadium with my hi-beams smile

GENUINE JDM BULBS (MADE IN JAPAN)

XENON PLASMA WHITE CLASS HEADLIGHT BULBS

Unlike some other high wattage bulbs which will burn the wirings, these MTEC bulbs are standard wattage ones which are the same as the stock ones, but they output even brighter and whiter than other high wattage bulbs because MTEC bulbs are made to be the newest generation in the market.

 
The bulbs are Made in JAPAN!!! MTEC bulbs are rated at the same class as PIAA in Japan. They are NOT some cheap bulbs you see on the market. The bulbs are made with the latest technology and highest quality.

The white light closly matches that of sunlight.

Specialized for racing. Extra long life. Simple fabrication.

it wasn't actually hard to install at all, the only reason i got isaac to do it is that i had never changed bulbs before...but after watching him i could have done it on my own. i was just just out in the parking lot where i work and turned on the lights just to admire them...DAMN! our celicas look so diffrent with them on! thumbsup

I see the difference, very nice!! One question though. Can I put these on my stock headlights on my 2000 gts or do I need an hid kit? I don't know much about lighting and such. pm or email me or whatever.

NOPE! you don't need an hid kit, just slap the bulbs on and get ready to turn some heads shocked . i suggest getting the whole system for $65 bucks (that's an AWESOME DEAL thumbsup ). at such a cheap price your car will look totally diffrent thumbsup

they're at the ecelica store, just pick them up and the staff will take care of ya!

Yes, they are legal in all United States...
there is absolutely nothing about them that would make these NOT legal.

...This also explanes why Toyota Dealerships sell these exact same lightings for $45 EACH PAIR shocked

one set is HID and the other set are BULBS - read my long post above where it compares MTEC to Factory HID.

I didn't take out the whole headlight to install my PIAA, it's nto hard. I followed the owner's manual on what to do. And PIAA and MTEC are probably the two best suppliers out there! Both have very bright, effective bulbs to use thumbsup
