Lol I put the nokya yellow bulbs for my DRL. I think it looks good withe the yellow fogs. I also changed out the city lights for PIAA yellows too. So when its getting kinda dark or overcast, thats all I have on and I think it looks pretty good.

I got the Nokya Artic White's and really love em. I like how these bulbs cast a shadow of yellow or blue(depending on which one), when they are off. I need to do the same about my city lights, the regular stock filament ones just don't cut it.

As I mentioned in my post earlier in this thread, I bought 13w LED DRL's from V-LEDs Friday. I bought two $9.99 modules also from V-LEDs to correctly run each bulb.

i'd like to take care of my trans filter but the DIY shops near me aren't open today. Was stoked to find that carquest carries Toyota fluids last week to include coolant. Guess i'll order my timing belt kit and find a cabin air filter.

Yeah I love the look. I tried getting Raybrigs for city lights in yellow but they are discontinued. So I got PIAA.

it was more of this last weekend, but... took headlights and fogs out. took them apart completely, painted the insides flat black, removed the factory ballasts, sanded the yellow off the fog projector lenses, and installed 55w 5,000k HIDs from DDM in the lows and fogs. packed ballasts in where the factory ones were, soldered, heat shrink, the whole 9 yards. sanded and polished all the lenses. resealed and lookin sexy now. only took 2 days. :S
