The price of HID kit has dramatically lowered especially in markets such as eBay... I remember many eons ago, they were market valued around 200+ Now LEDs are making (have been making) their way into the automotive lighting industry as an efficient alternative to standard bulbs (most luxury vehicles) Question I have in mind is What would you get? Im really leaning towards LED technology since it has evolved quite dramatically, but so far I've heard that these aftermarket ones are not at strong as HID. But they seem to have an advantage if you have projector headlamps... hmmm

Some people do, but I am to anal with wiring... I would get tired of doing it annually for inspections.

I catch your drift, I got a few "wink wink" inspections myself running cat-less downpipes on my Subarus... Most of the time those were at the stealership though where I knew the techs. With headlight wiring it's blatantly obvious usually, and troopers here will pull you over if they know off the top of their head your car is not supposed to have HID headlights. They'll look up the inspection station and fine them.

I think it would be obvious if you were running 7000K or + HID systems... I can't stand those... they come close as to staring at a weld spark...

*UPDATE*

I just recently purchased these... for the taillights, dome and map lights
Tail lights including the blinkers?

Does this change every light inside the vehicle LED with this kit? What about the license plate lights?
Yes, and I still had bulbs left over. Even did the bulbs under the sun visors.

If your talking about the headlight housing then there are more bolts. Most of the toyotas require removing the bumper to get to the lower bolts.
