Celica Headlights

I like celicas, as most everyone does; but theres just one thing that bothers me about them. Has anyone else noticed the rediculously large/bright headlights??? I don't know if there's some government conspiracy to have all headlights become larger than life to cut the cost of energy consumption or something, but if so... toyota is SO in on it! I dunno, it's always a topic with me and my best friend in the whole wide wiz-orld wave, so I thought it was important enough to put on here.

I think headlight's pretty unique... I loved them soo badly... Celica's headlight's really famous in japan man... They even put them on NSX rofl... if you do some research, you will come accross red NSX with celica head light...
Big headlights are coo i think... you dont want small headlight on 'becomiing big' cars man... that's out of question no balance...

large as in high output? bright as in brilliant beautiful night visibility?

the toyota celica's lights are superbly engineered to reflect a high output beam while utilizing only a tiny bulb.

i don't think there would be a conspiracy 'bout making headlights efficient...

As said.. the headlights are good, unique style, the more light they project the better. Although they could use a bit fine tuning, which is what TRD eyelids are for.

The headlights IS great!

You see most of the newer cars after the Celly wants to have headlights like these. Check out Focuses, their headlights are freakishly similar...ew

the highest point on the headlight that projects light is actually our lowbeams. hah and a lot of people flash me with their high-beams because they think my hi's are on...losers, and plus the projector lense makes the lights more defined.

every other car is coming out with their own version of the 7th gen's headlight style. thumbsup

The Celica's headlights look awesome!!! Only 1 of my friends complained about the look and he owns a Ford Wranger, so that says it all. Too bad Toyota gave us great headlights that everyone wants or wants to copy and they throw in some condensation for an added bonus. Sometimes I feel like I'm part of some sort of Toyota designer's bad joke.

^^yah, i feel you on that.

what's up with the frickin condensation? i dont feel like opening the headlight casing just to clean it!
the condensation is robbing me of optimum lighting.
