i've been trying to find if anybody knows what type of light bulbs the '07 camry will be using? i'm about to pickup a hid set for my current car, but will like to transfer it onto the camry once it comes out. Thanks!

If you look at pics of the new Camry, its going to already have projectors.

i'm not talking about what type of headlights..i'm wanting to know the type of bulb its going to use. Even though it has projectors, it doesn't mean it'll have HID. There are halogen projectors as well.

Right, well the fact that it has projectors is the only thing about the car's lights that Toyota has released. There are no details.

I guess the biggest question is why go through all that when you are going to trade-in your Camry soon anyway for an '07???

I don't drive a camry right now. I'm driving a '98 honda prelude that uses H1 bulbs. But i can hack up a bulbholder to fit the '07 camry bulb style into my headlights, and enjoy HIDs until it comes out. Then i'm going to transfer them over to the new camry.

And once you go HID, you'll never want to go back to halogen..the only reason i went back to halogen is because i retrofitted valeo projectors (audi a4) into my headlights, but i sold the whole headlight after a while for profit.

What kind of bulbs are the '06 camry using right now?

Dang, this is the first time I have read someone thinking ahead to upgrade a car that hasn't been released yet. I don't know what to think.......:ugh3:

Don't go with those aftermarket HID kits. One dude in a Chevy Blazer had one, and it really pissed me off. They are like high beams when installed in a regular halogen housing. So I let him pass, and pulled up behind him, turned on my Bright GEN5 high beams. (They are friggin bright, when coupled with Silverstar 9005's.) See how ya like that, punk. :lol:

My bet would be H7.

But the bigger issue is... DO NOT BUY AN HID KIT.

The fact that the new camry has projectors will just be more reason for retards to spend money on shit HID kits and blind everyone.

Most likely the Hybrid model for the 2007 Camrys will probably come with HIDs, same as the Prius does with certain packages. All I know is that the US Highlander Hybrid doesn't offer HIDs as optional where Japan Kluger Hybrid (Highlander) does come with HIDs as standard. So as far as your question out of curiousity, if you buy a HID for your Prelude most likely it won't be a same fit for the Gen 6 Camry.

I wanna place my bet on the gen6 having HIDs. The avalon has optional HIDs as does the Prius. I bet the XLE and Hybrid will have HIDs... Possibly the SE.
These are just hopeful assumptions though, could be halogen projectors.:bleh:

because that one dude in the blazer is a retard. If you're running HID in halogen housing you're suppose to aim it lower to the ground. But of course the dude probably didn't and i doubt it'll help that much since its a suv.

How the f should we know. The only thing released is some pics and some stats. There are no stupid questions just stupid people. :disappoin
so don't tell me your flaming me for asking a simple question? it's not like i was getting mad or anything because nobody was able to answer it.

the '07 is soon to be out in a few more months, there is no doubt that SOMEBODY would have knowledge of it. Plus i bet i'm the only one that actually asked for if anybody knew the bulb type. All i've seen is people asking if it's going to be hid or halogens.

thank you.

theres a difference. A shit or non shit hid WOULD blind anybody with halogen housing, i mean even with oem hids in a halogen housing that isn't mean for HID would still blind somebody. Any type of HID (shitty off brands, oem, etc.) thats in projectors would not blind anybody if the projector is adjusted correctly.

many people diss hid KITS, because the fact that many ricers just stick it in their headlights without even adjusting it. The only thing i have against them is the quality. There are only a couple that make good ones, and there are many that makes crappy defective ones.

I know it wouldn't fit. But i'm buying the HID in spec for the camry not for the prelude, BUT i'll be able to hack up a bulb holder to fit the bulb into my prelude headlights temporarily.

HID ("OEM or Made in China") in anything not designed specifically for HID will yield poor results.

Halogen projectors are a very different animal than a true HID projector. I don't care how you adjust them, they will yield poor results (except in rare cases like Valeo H7).

Just to point out a simple thing. Only two models are available with HIDs for the Avalons. The Limited Model have HIDs as standard as the Touring models come as an option, but nowadays, Tourings still comes with HIDs as standard you should say. It's quite hard to find a base model without any options on cars these days.
