    For those that are on the fence about the 2018+ Sequoia headlights,....do it! There are no direct comparison threads and since I have both headlights, I figured that I'd show the difference. The DRLs are literally night and day. No night pics since it's still light here but I can say that the Sequoia lights are brighter with less stray light (even with Hikaris in the alpharex).

    I hope this helps someone in their decision!

    What's the best price you found on the sequoia LED headlights?

    Looks great! I was thinking about Morimoto XB over the sequoia headlights to save some money.

    Thanks, I was able to find them for under $500 but one ended up having a bad DRL (I made thread about it) and the seller let me keep that one for $100 making the total $400 for both lights on Ebay. There is a company on eBay that sells refurbs for $444 each and says they will be in great condition. I debated the morimotos as well since they are cheaper but ultimately decided on the Sequoia lights due to the shape and how much they change the look of the front end. To me, the Morimoto lights are just a small step up from the alpharex lights posted above and the Sequoia lights kill them both. To each, their own though. Keep in mind that you'll have to buy/paint the filler panels as well if you go with the sequoia lights.

    Thanks @Beau . I’ve been debating this exact thing. Appreciate the direct comparison.
