Question on MTEC bulbs

I was wondering if anybody has had any problems with the bulbs they sell at the celica store? My friend got some cheap ones from a local store for his car and they melted some wiring stuff on his headlights somehow. I think the were APC lights, i know APC but still i wanted to get some from MTECH but was wondering if that still happens with these. LET ME KNOW. THANKS

the APC bulbs prolly used high wattage filaments. The MTECHs are great becuz they provide the brightness of a 100W+ bulb but only draw the same amount of power as the stock bulbs which are 55W/65W for the lows/highs respectively.

Had mine for over a year now, love em. No problems, ecelica is about the only place to get them, other stores like Matrix that had them are out of stock.

awesome bulbs..

install them correctly and you won't have problems...
that's where you hear stories because people mess them up and think nothing of it.

9005 (High Beams) and H3 (Fog Lights)

Your LowBeams are HID (as you mentioned), so bulbs are not an option for you
