I guess I am the minority. I can't picture these looking good on a 5th gen. I immediately think rice patty at an absurd price. Throw in some HIDs and call it a day. I am 43 so probably my age talking.

I hate the sequential turns, but the DRLs look modern. Similar to a Tacoma. Plus, I have heard that you can remove the sequence effect through modding. Not sure if that is true.

Same here, not a fan at all. I am retrofitting Morimoto LED projectors into my headlights but mine will be clean and stock looking not this over the top rice muffin

Reached out to Morimoto directly and they are indeed still going through with production. They haven't posted much because it's still in early stages.

They said expect those housings to be launched around May or June, right after the Tacomas.

Not necessarily, it will depend on the lenses that they will use

Thanks for doing that and squashing rumors. Im in for a set as long as we can prove out that they indeed perform better than OEM projectors + HID bulb!

Anyone see these or planning on getting a set?

They are pricey, but I may drop some dough.....

That link is for XenonDepot

My links are from TheRetrofitSource
My opinion, from experience from both places.... retrofitsource is a far superior company and product

they're both using the same images and teaser video so my guess is it's the same manufacturer but different sellers.
