For those looking, these are now selling on eBay. not sure of the quality or fittiment but its a start. They are available with both a black and chrome housing. If anyone ends up buying these please let us know how the install was and how well they fit. Pics would also be great. I'd like to see how they look on my white 2010 before I decide to buy..

What I like about my 08 is the low key, yet bold style. These are cool on their own but, for me, I find them to add too much Bling.

Too much of a ricer mod.

After adding those, you'll need to stick a 3 foot wing on the back roof.

Could care less how they look as the actual throw and beam is most important. Most non-OE tend to be horrible for lighting.

I'm pretty you do have to send them your headlights too. They will basically do the retrofit for you at a price. I just ordered the full HID bixenon kit from The Retrofit Source. Hopefully, I'll have time to do it.

Do I have to send them my headlights? Plus I have a HID bi-xenon kit installed, will this work with this setup?
You can either send in yours or buy an extra set (craigslist/ebay/etc) and send them in. For $75, once the work is done they will install it for you. They don't use cheap ebay kits. These are high end projectors with name brand bulbs and ballasts. It will be brighter and better than if your car came from the factory with HID.

Mine with some custom work was $1200.

i like em. But i would just connect the upper LEDs, not the Angel Eyes.

Everything together is really to much.

But i dont think i will buy em, because of the H1 Lowbeam. Everything else would be ok, but H1 and H3 are the baddest solution you can get:headbang:

Why do people buy these? They came standard on my 2009 BMW 335. Why would I want them on my Toyota Highlander?

I think it looks stupid, its an obvious and blatant rip off from BMW.

Are most people buying these just for show, to be "cool"? There isn't much cool about a Highlander. Don't get me wrong, its a nice, reliable car for my wife and the kids, but it ain't cool.

Wow, I normally don't jump in on these kind of comments, but I feel the need to here. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The fact that you have this style of light on your beemer (which I believe ripped it off the "look" from Audi frankly) has no bearing on whether it works or not on another vehicle. Furthermore, other auto manufacturers are beginning to incorporate this look into their vehicles, including SUVs.

I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I wouldn't call this mod "stupid" nor the HL "not cool" just because it is not a beemer. Now, I'm not saying that I would do this mod or that the HL is cool or not cool....all I am saying is have some respect for others opinions without being so harsh.

Cheers.

And now Porshe has them !
I think my HL looks cool. In the mornings I love standing in the driveway after I have waxed it, drinking a brewsky and admiring the lines. This... Despite the fact that I own a Porsche .. Lol
Best looking SUV out there !

I just wanna add few things to what Luck123 said, personally I like how Hl looks like and I think that it misses HID projectors for sure. Personally I hate the halogen and i think that this type of heads are quite cool. Chinese folks made it even with the HID d2s like yours on bimmer, and they add also halo and led which is cool and looks nice. If Toyota NA wont be soo stupid they will use HID long time ago like in europe or asia or africa, why they dont do it I dont know, that a reason I picked different car in 2007, now I will go for 2011HL.

If you think that your little bimmer is cool thats fine but not for me, cuz I owned 335i and it was in service more than it was driven, but 9 y/o rav4 which is still on the road never seen mechanic since it was bought brand new.LOL
