HID or stock headlights

well...my cheapness came to an end last nite...i totatally
blew out the wiring to da headlights(h7) of course i was using those Nokya bulbs which are of course higher wattage...so now im thinkin how much more is it...to juss go to a local performance shop and convert them to HID?...by the way when you do that, everything is replace right?...you know since i practically burned my wiring or what ever the plug thing to the crisp...or is it just WAY cheaper just taking it to Toyota and have them replace with OEM parts again?...

jsut buy an HID kit and put it in yourself. its basically plug and play, and is waaay better than stock bulbs.

watch out for glare caused by the stock projector unit, and the "UFO" effect caused by the cutout areas used to light up overhead signs.. you could always try to get the Toyota OEM HID unit as fitted to the newer T-Sport etc..
