    I'm new to the hid projector retrofit stuff. I've been researching some, but have yet to fully understand it.

    It seems like everyone is retrofitting headlights to get the best results. Very few people seem to be pleased with ebay purchases.

    Can you not buy GOOD headlights that are already equipped with quality projectors? And if there is a demand for it, why isn't someone jumping on the opportunity?

    I'm not sure about the Tacoma headlights, but other vehicles that have interest in this arena have all kinds of custom options that ebay selections don't offer.

    Ebay and Amazon Headlights tend to oxidize and yellow really fast for some reason. I'd suggest you build your own set with quality parts using the OEM headlights. Whats also good about retrofitting your own headlights is you can make it to your personal liking rather it be bezel color, reflector color, shroud color/design, halos, etc. Here's what i did!
