It was around $300ish...

Installing can take a while anywhere from 2-3 hours, you have to remove your front bumper and modify the bulb (if you don't want to have "train tracks.") Personally, if I had more knowledge then as I do now I would have gone with Phillips HID's. There is more info on HID's on this website

Some Mcculloch bulbs have the return wires on top. So, when the lights are reflected up, they caused a shadow. You'll see two brown lines on the ground.

To fix this, I had to turn the bulbs "upside down" so the return wires facing down and modify the bulb base to fit the H7 slot.

Renee' has 5300K. I switched to a Philips/Nissan kit with D2R bulbs @ 4300K. The boxes are mounted underneath the headlight housings.

To get the prism effect, you need to change the projectors. The Philips bulbs are very bright. The lights are white with a hint of blue at the cut-off line. Sorry, no pics yet. I had to return the digital camera because it takes really bad pics at night.

BTW, the audi TT projectors made by Hella or Bosch are small enough to replace the stock ones that come with the Celica. But, to change the projectors, you would need to take your headlights apart. Major surgery. Or you can have a company in So Cal do it for $800 includes HID kit, new projectors and labor. I will find the website for you later.

The audi TT projectors use standard D2S bulbs. But, I am sure the H7 would fit in there. I am using D2R bulbs in the H7 slot.
