I am REALLY considering getting these here in a day or so, I know I want to but been debating it but I think Im too anxious to upgrade my lighting. So I was wondering, is this the correct size for the celica's as well? And how much better are these over the factory lamps? Im considering getting silverstars to go with them as well

85gtsblackman and I both have them and we are very happy with them. The diamond ones are just cheap junk, but these ones really are euro spec housings. I had thought about getting high end bulbs also when I got mine but it turned out the bulbs he includes do a great job.

a little pricier but as long as they are worth it. So the white bulbs are just fine then? What kind of color do the lights appear as? I mean, I know white, but is it yellowish or more of a pure white or bluish white?

The euros are actually cheaper if you want to bid on them. I tried the best offer with him when I bought mine but the cheapest he goes is $22.95.

Eurospec is the best. They put way more importance on driving lights than we do.

For the best light distribution you want the ones that grayscale posted.
These are very good quality headlights, European 'E' Mark approved :bigthumbu

I should do a comparison pic. Right now I have one sealed beam silverstar and one Hella H4 ECE headlight. The light pattern is far superior on the Hella ECE to the DOT sealed beams. So much wasted light with the DOT sealed beams.

I was washing my car one day when I still had the sealed beams and my daughter was helping me. She suddenly had an idea that had never occurred to me- she asked me to flip my lights up so she could wash them. Sure enough it turned out to be a good idea, cause the next morning on the way to work the lights were a good bit brighter.

Yeah I learned that one... Something about driving 3000miles in 7 days (most at night) kind of nastified the headlights.

Yea, it's a good idea to clean them, especially in the winter here. I took a short trip on the highway and noticed my lights were dim, turns out there was a layer of salt on them, it was cutting the light output by about half or more.
