My bad. I was thinking 5th gen LED vs Halogen - both of which are available.

i bought this toyota in June and it had LED lights in it, that seemed pretty bright........however....where I live and that time of year....the sun does not go down....so hard to judge. Now we are starting into our dark phase and these LED's are still super bright.....for about 100 feet. Fortunately I ordered some halogens for my 2001, but never installed b4 selling.....so they will be going into this one soon.
The halogens pump light forward into the reflector, which bounces it backwards on to the big reflector housing and then out. The LED's ...most that i have seen...send most of thier light out sideways....not into the little reflector.. thus why they dont work great in the 3rd gen......so I ve been told.....

someplace somewhere I saw a video of a guy taking his stock housings off, washing out the inside.....just swirled soapy water around...rince....he said it made a big difference getting all the dust out

It is credible that washing out the housings would give better output. The aluminum coating is physically soft and easily damaged, but it probably survives a short time in water/detergent just fine. An option for those on a slim budget.
