i know what you mean .. and i've done reasearch and junk on hids.. and blah..blah..

just putting in a hid bulb in our stock as you know we dont get the nice pretty purple and Performance...

well after i do my fog light hid 6000k/yellow capsule retrofit thing.. i'm going to attempt my moms 95 camry with a custom retrofit of audi projectors..

then finally i'm going to attempt it on the celica... don't you have hid's already Jason confused

well in any case what i recommend and am doing for when i get to mine is.. use ECE valeo h7 projectors.. you can still get the nice purple cuttoff.. or you could get the D2S valeo projectors as well but its $100 more typicall

s2000 projectors have one of the niceest outputs but i'm not certain it would fit. economy wise i recommend ece valeo h7 projectors for the retrofit..

doing a retrofit is the only true way to get hid Performance thumbsup that or getting an OEM celica headlamp..which i did for comparison happywink

o and i think you've seen this already so for anyone else...

also forgot to note just aiming it down you'd still have "UFO"'s check link above..coming from the stock projectors unless you filled up the holes (jb weld happywink)


but yes if you get h7 valeos then you can take a stock h7 bulb and take the base and mod it to fit into a standard d2s hid bulb...

if you get a d2s projector then heck you have nothing to worry about thumbsup

^^^ya, i had a HID kit. sold it, cos i want a "real performing" HID out-put thumbsup

using PIAA bulbs now ~!lol!~

thanks for those infos man, any idea where can i buy those projectors?

oh, and wut are the ballasts and bulbs i should use?

im thinking of just getting a 4300K - 5000K ones. as you know i had 7000K, and that was too bluish for me grinlol!

anything over 4300k thumbsdown IMO .. if you want to get the best light.. stay in the 4100 - 4300 range..

you get the right projector you'll get the purple junk.. and nice cut off thumbsup with the ece projectors you'll get even more purple twinkle


typically hella ballast are the best..philps bulbs.. just get any OEM set of a ballast and bulbs and that should suffice..

the valeos i got from ebay.. theres a seller there who is trustworthy.. and pretty freqent on hidforum.com so i'll pm you his email if you want confused i bought from him already off ebay.. and so has my friend.. he packs it good... but i'm going to first install these on my mom's to make sure it really does have that nice purple... but i think it would as the people on hidforum have said its nearly identical to a d2s size housing.. thumbsup

do your reasearch before jumping into all this though.. i searched hid forum and i couldn't find anyone else who has done a retrofit for the celica.. except this one company did but said they wouldn't do it again cause its too hard confused well i'll take a stab at it if i'm successful with my moms during the winter.. maybe i'll get to the celi in the spring tongue

well for retro fitting... TSX projector's and s4 projectors are known to be the best output/performance.

got to make sure they fit too happywink .. some people buy bi-xeon projectors rofl and ends up being too big for the housing .. rofl

i wonder what brand the TSX are though.

actually i believe the s4 projectors are Valeo's.. happywink

ya, those TSX are crazy. but it's kinda lost the HID look through those projectors.

S4s cut-offs are too bluish imo.

i still like the S2K projector the best

with the ECE h7 projectors you should get some good twinkle affect since its euro spec thumbsup you know its a flat line but then you get that slant at the side thumbsup

s2ooo projectors are hard to come by but do cost an arm and a leg.. i'm just not sure it would fit in the celica housing confused

I had HID in mine and I know retrofitting is the best way to get Performance... and my friend's performing the retrofitting on the accord right now... he is putting in TSX...

anywayz... I just felt like putting on some picture of the HID and celica's projector lowered to the maximum point it could possibly go... so yep... here it is...

^^^nice thumbsup

u are rite about the maximum point of the celica projectors. basically the HID kit just shines up to where the regular bulbs' light beam will go.

that's why i took off mine. i want a REAL one lol~

yah for more info, advice, recommendtations...

Linked Image

Ken I could have sworn i've seen your headlamps before one hidforum idunno

When i finish mine I'll try to make an install guide tongue if everything turns out good happywink

Jason I pm'ed you his address thumbsup

...and nice thing with the h7 is you can go back to a bulb any time.. with a d2s you can't just stick a regular bulb in there it won't work right thumbsdown ..only thing with the h7 is you'd have to either make or buy and adaptor ring..
