No problems. Used since November. Bulbs only, no ballast.

Reason to sell: cracked headlight lens, buying halo'd projectors and buying new H1 HID bulbs to fit it.

$80 CAD

No, and probably wont be. Unlike wheels, there isn't the cosmetic or defect visual issue.

So they look like the bulbs in the eBay auction ?
Meaning they have wire leads from the bulbs ,also know as McCullough style?
Or are they like the Toyota bulbs you spoke of which have no wires and would have had a metal collar added to the base to fit a 9006 socket from a d2r / d2s ?

Interesting. I never knew that the leads were actually named. Yes, it comes with the 'McCullough' style ends.

This is what an oem Phillips bulb looks like.
Notice it has no wires and there are 2 types the d2r which has a black line on the glass and d2s for projector headlights.


The rest of bulbs with wire leads are cheaply made Chinese/Taiwan patent infringement copies of the real things.

Right. Didn't say these are D2R/D2S bulbs...?

If you actually took the time to contact the company, you'd find they OEM to Toyota. Not North America. Nor did I say that THESE particular set were OEM to Toyota.

EDIT: Granted, it's out of their mouths as source, and not mine. *shrug*
