<font color='#FF0000'>hyper whites, baby! *purrs* i have them. Just buy the bulbs hun. If you make everything hyper whites, (brights and all your lights) it can get pricy. like 85 bucks or something like that. Pep Boys, Auto Zone... places like that. good luck!

<font color='#000000'>Not for much cheaper than just getting the conversion kit and bulb.  And if you ever have to replace the bulb again in the future (you will) then you just have to pay for bulbs...much less expensive.</font>

<font color='#810541'>I don't know what you're guys talkin' bout. Cause I have a 91' GT (3SGE) and all I do is only exchange the bulb. Now I have the Superblue BOSCH bulbs H4. Very good ones. Improved the visibility quite a lot. One could really see it.

Have a look at

<font color='#810541'>Wish,
no, i have the ordinary ST182 model. Nothing special. Except it's a european one  :D

I really don't know, but my system works exactly the same way as it's shown here (doesn't really matter it's a GT4)

http://www.radcastro.com/Projects/Project+ST2GT4/464.aspx

So pls have a look.

I can make a few pics if you wish. Or pls VTEC show us your system, how it works!

Thanks!</font>

<font color='#000F22'>unless someone already replaced them you have sealed beam. i sold a lot of these kits to celica owners and installed them, i would have had a lot returned if they were a non sealed beam... lol and i had none returned.
just keep in mind u get what u pay for man....
you buy a sealed beem replacement ull spend probrolly 30-40 bucks for 2 replacements, in a couple years when they go youll have to spend another 30-40 bucks again. as opposed to paying 40-50 and getting a better bulb non sealed beam u can throw leds in there (actually the ones i sell come with a led installed in each housing) and when the bulbs go you just pay 20 bucks and get new ones.</font>
