High beam, HID upgrade


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am planning on getting some HID's for my headlights and want to do both high and low beam now the low beams will not present a problem as they are a direct fit. The high beams will be a issue as currently they are H1R1 bulb and standard HB3 wont lock into place.

reading a older thread here: http://au.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/topic/24130-xenon-bulb-upgrade-07-sx6/ It states by DJKOR that some modification is needed.

what do i need to do to make them fit looking at some hb3 halogens i have here i can't seem to work out if its the thickness or legenth?

Someone who has do this upgrade could you please shead some light on what i need to do?

sorry I'm not understanding which are what?

Are the HID H1R1?

Just a note, so you all know, you can legally fit HID as long as the headlights have a washing system and will self level.

I never ended up doing it, but found out that the H1R1 is a different size to the hb3 bulbs that the handbook states will fit. On some Aurion models they do have normal HB3 bulbs and sockets instead of the H1R1 bulbs.

Mine doesn't but i find it funny that some do and some don't
