Also any reasons you guys don't make the city light the turn signal? Would make more sense. This way the amber light is on with the headlight and the 194 bulb for the city light can be used as a turn signal.
A 194 is not bright enough to be the sole signal bulb.

Ok, so instead of using the single filament like the the JDM one why don't we make an adapter for the dual filament to fit?

I have picked up some 7443 pigtails and they fit right into the headlight. So now I will get full function of the turn signal and running lamp as well as the ECE light.

Update. The motor connectors are not available anymore. I think I have found replacements. For the switch, that as well is discontinued but I found one for that as well. Should have a full kit available for sale soon as I did two sets.

Bump, if anyone is interested I am selling a set of these w/ low beam adjusters. I imported them from Japan. They have worked flawlessly over the past few years. Check the classified section.

I was too late to buy them, if anyone else is planning to sell a set please let me know.

Checking in...it's been a few years since I've converted mine to JDM. How are your D4S bulb holding out? My Toshiba bulb doesn't seem as bright as other vehicles on the road I've notice. Are there any other brighter bulb alternatives besides Toshiba & Philips D4S? Thanks

The translations are kind of useless, can’t I easily flip the projector shield without disassembling the entire headlight?

just hard for me to trust the poorly translated description for used headlights from another country.

Found one example. https://www.ebay.de/itm/SCHEINWERFER-H11-HB3-RECHTS-FUR-8113042310-8113042311-2011531152-20B531A52B/292211467520?fits=Model:RAV+4+III&hash=item4409292500:g:wyYAAOSwnMxdfQOQ

Just using this as an example - scrolling down I saw "Passend für Rechts (Beifahrerseite)" Which google translated to "Suitable for right (passenger side)"

now we know if right side is passenger side you this is for a LHD RAV4. So we know this will have the right cut-off.

But I think this one is aftermarket. so YMMV on the quality.

At this point there are not seems to have a lot of good condition used OEM LHD projectors left. It might be easier and cheaper to look into the aftermarket route.

Yeah, that is basically the conclusion I had also since I couldn't seem to find any solid options for OEM, but the aftermarket projector headlights on auction sites look so...., well, aftermarket with double halos and led DRL strips which I don't really want and I figure it is a gamble in quality as to which aftermarket brand to try. For Example:

I did notice some OEM headlights with projectors that look really nice, but appear to be halogen instead of HID, which would be fine I guess. For Example:

My original headlights are 13 years old and the UV damage is extensive so I have to replace them at this point as polishing/refinishing isn't holding up long anymore; they look horrible.

Any chance the photos from this thread could be restored? I think it's a decent one to preserve considering these cars are still popular and people (like me) are still looking to do this upgrade. Ihave the headlights and most of the connectors and terminals, but still, nice to have a reference for those with poor memories (again, like me!!) :)

thanks !

I second your motion! My dad just bought a 2011 Rav4 and he might convert it over the summer.
Veliksam - Can we have the pictures and link restored? Thanks
