go with the HID. imo they make cars look more pricey. and everyone can see them in their glory as you drive at night. i think you will turn more heads with them. and if you sis that you will still have power Mirrors and i know you like that.

HID's but I suggest you read and do your reasearch on them first..

Read Tony's response It sums things up really nice.

https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/thread.f_252822_0_collapsed_5__1.html

Those 8000k will just be really expensive nice looking lights but the 4100-4300k will give you BMW, benz ..performance thumbsup

Check this for comparison pics of the HID Celica housing and the stock housing.. thumbsup

just running ideas though my head and i remembered at school, my teaher put blue tissue paper over the ceiling lights to make a shade of blue...

like the "GE reveil bulbs" they have a shade over them and it makes pure light...

wouldn't that be the same for a car light, put like a blue transparent film on the head light bulbs...

i dont know, just thought it might work the same way, but i would rather go for something already made...just thinking spineyes
