Do a search for "Meccatune" on Ebay. I've had their kit for 3 months and I haven't had any problems. They use Hella ballast with Japanese bulbs. You plug the wire harnes to the stock harnes, connect a cable to the battery, and replace a fuse & you're done.

Yeah, but they're all the same. Instead of getting one for a 9007 bulb, you get one for a H7 or H3 (whatever it is for the Celica). All kits are the same, the only thing they change is the bulb. It's probably a lot easier to install in on a Celica than an Xterra 'cuz I had to fabricate a bracket for the driver side 'cuz there's too much crap on the driver side fender.

I have a 6500K and you can see a big difference. Once you go HID you'll never go back to halogen.

Most kits use 35 watts, so it's not gonna melt your housing.
