I think I guessed right on the color temp.s and all the lights match.
Switchbacks are great but poor one size fits all design needs work...

What color temp.'s are they? Thanks in advance!
Sure, I went with 6K this time and boy I'm so glad I did; perfect match with Touring Headlights. Last time I spoke with a VLEDs rep., he talked me into 5K switchbacks for my 2014 Tundra. I never liked them, but lesson learned!
I literally just made an account to figure out what lights you got. Would you mind posting the exact brand and maybe a URL? I need these. haha
No problem, here's what I ordered from High Performance LED Car Lighting, Light Bulbs, LED Headlights, Taillights, Turn Signals, and Brake Lights

Those look amazing, I was going to purchase the 5K but from your pictures I feel like 6K will look so much better.

Thanks

I see $577.16 per side...
You see correctly. The previous poster was asking for links to where I purchased all my lights from and that's what I replied to.
Confusion arose when people thought I had paid $272 for bulbs "and" Touring headlights.

My Honda dealer matched the online price so it was $1200 for headlights plus $272 for VLEDs. :smile

What's the cost for the normal, halogen projector v6 heads? If it's the same or close you'd be much better off in the output, color, cutoff, etc department by doing those w/ a HID projector swap and vleds.

The V6 halogen low beam/LED DRL headlights are about $500 shipped from Majestic Honda, the last time I checked. Figure in a minimum of $400 for the Retro-Quik kit from TRS (with clear lenses, butyl, housing caps, ballasts, igniters, HD relay, projectors, and bulbs), and you're still under $1000. Of course, you have to bake the headlights and replace the projectors yourself but lots of people have done it with no serious issues.

especially if you don't buy the V6 headlights and just retrofit with whatever ones you have already lol
