Close but not exact. Look at the LED.
Intersting. I think I see what you mean about the snugness but in my few days driving, they have not moved.I have a 2014.5 SE V6 and am using the 9005 version, for high-beam/DRL included in the same bulb. I also noticed that the XD LED bulbs dont sit as tight in the housing as the OE Halogens did either... I mean, they're no loose, but you can feel that they are not as tight as the halogen bulb.
Just read it! I don't think the bulbs will go anywhere, I'm more worried about water getting in and fogging up the headlight...Intersting. I think I see what you mean about the snugness but in my few days driving, they have not moved.
I just posted my in depth review & take on them here: http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/310-7th-generation-2012/1040969-xenondepot-s-new-phillips-lmz-led-headlight-kit-review.html#post8870257
Being that i have seen several 14-15' Corollas around my area, I can tell you that their LEDs are definitely brighter that halogens but not up to par to say my XenonD 5K HIDs though.This may be unrelated, but the new corollas have led low beams. Am I right? If so, how's the light output compared to halogens. I'm guessing it still doesn't beat HIDs. How does the led bulb of a Rolla compare to these bulbs in terms of design and performance?
I too was new to everything in regards to car modifications. This is my first time making any changes to a car & so if I can go it, am sure any1 can.Hi Omo! Your reviews on the DRL leds and lowbeam hids are convincing me to make my purchase soon for my new 15 SE! I'm not really car savvy so i'm going to attempt to install the lights myself. Is there anyway you can post a picture of where you keep the ballast and everything inside the engine? I have no clue where a good spot would be to keep all the ways safe inside the engine. Thank you! :grin:
On the Tundra forum someone reported the same thing...VLEDS 5k didn't match the 5000k HIDs. Only one guy reported that there, though.Installed my VLED's on one side by I was disappointed by the color. They were super white but made my HID's look yellow. Maybe the 5k HID's need to be broken in more? Not sure if I'll be keeping them.
Hmm...I would look at the HID bulbs instead of the LED bulbs then.I swapped out one of my HID's from my last car (same color - 5k) and the color was definitely different than my current bulbs. Maybe my current bulbs need to break in more, they only have a maximum of 10 hours on them. I'm debating if I should give the LED's another shot.
During the day, if I have low beam headlights on -- which I wouldn't but just wanted to compare the lights in the daytime -- the 5K V3 Tritons do NOT perfectly match my XenonD 5K HIDs. Like I said in a previous post, I believe this could be due to technological differences in regards to the components. I might be wrong.Installed my VLED's on one side by I was disappointed by the color. They were super white but made my HID's look yellow. Maybe the 5k HID's need to be broken in more?

I guess it's personal preference. At night time, I think the V3 Tritons & my XD 5K leds look good together. During the day, they are clearly shades away from one another.Yes, they are from XenonDepot. It's the same setup but I know for sure now that the HID bulb hasn't burned in yet.
Still, I was expecting a some what similar color tone overall. VLEDS support has been great and said they'd let me return them which is awesome. Another thing I didn't like was the pause from amber back to white. Their response to that was "You'll be happy to know we are working on a new controller with snap switching!".
