i didnt use it either. i'd have to replace one of the switches for one with auto leveling, then route wiring to that leveler thing...yeah dont need it. It's rusting away at a good pace

depends how lucky you are on getting a complete headlight unit, and how patient you are on shipping. the headlights are 30-100 USD on jp auctions. the necessary wiring is a good 50 or so. Assuming that the headlights came with ballast and the bulbs are in there, that's your bare minimum cost+shipping to your home. (ems shipping for these are about 150 to east coast usa)

Ah, yeah it's a little bit of knowing what you're doing and buying project. Not sure I am committed enough to go that route.

What I really feel that is missing on the Yaris light output is the medium to close range, it's like the beam pattern doesn't light down the road enough and it's not relaxing at times especially in dark rain or poorly lighted roads structures like overpass and access ramps. I really like how much the LED fog light setup of IllusionX fills up the lower parts of the road, I'm thinking I may very well just slap an LED bar in the front grill and carefully select and aim it so it doesn't blind anyone.

fog lights help immensely in that range. I have the morimoto XB LED fog lights, never looked back.

What do you think of these ? I'm not familiar with what's real and what's gimmick in terms of projectors and lights, but I'm thinking it could be nice if its a real HID projector setup ?

the extra ground is needed for the parking light (little bulb), so an extra wire goes from the ground for that parking light to the chassis.

12.5 or 15. I went with 15. CTScott recommended against it for fire hazard, but its the only way for my headlights to stay working...and its been years since i changed it with no issue. no flicker, no premature blown anything.

I wouldn't do that, there is a reason the fuse is at 10amp. You have to ground it properly. Did you try enviri's suggestion? I didn't get a chance to install my headlights yet because of the weather and school.

What year is your car? I accidentally ordered a pair of post facelift JDM HID headlights that I will sell soon here in the states once the weather warms up and I install the pre facelift headlight in my car. The only thing that is missing is the ballast which you can get off of ebay easily. I can definitely sell it to you if you want to wait little bit.
