I say just get the mtecs theyre so sweet and so cheap then you got all that $$ to play with. HIDS are way too expensive unless you have like $700-800 or whatever they cost to throw away.

I would say her's are from Toyota like mine are, you can adjust them up and down according to the passengers and luggage. HID's are soo awesome, I don't know what I would do without mine! thumbsup

The bulbs I see on ebay, from a co. called IceBeam, are halogen, xenon filled... H7 100watt. Are they for stock Celica's or do you have to have H.I.D. kit? They sell for around 7bucks. Anyone familiar?

i used to be skeptical, and when i helped my friend put his BMW HID's in... i was convinced~!!! i have misterjungs 6000K kit, worth EVERY penny, it's much more road to see at night, and when you want to be safe or just see more in front of you while pushin the cars limits, the extra light is definitely a plus~!

7000k hmm kinda takes away from the lighting aspect unlike the 4500k-5000k area pure white no blue or yellow...i know most people love the blue but for that much money i want light not color but if you do want blue go with 5500k or so cause with the more blue in there the less distance it covers not sayin that it won't be a lot more than stock but pure white will be even better and for the money i would want to make sure i'm gettin the most of of them...just my 2 cents!

icic, what about 6000k?
cause i've seen celica with the 7000K kit i am getting, it's blueish but bright as hell...wonder what will the 6000K look like..
EDIT: the same kit (7000K) that i wanted is installed on the celica ..

total(the kit plus installation) $850 CDN, about $590 US
