    Ok, so does the '16 SR5 with the TSS pkg not have LED DRL's? I saw something that only the Limited and up have them, is this correct? The head light looks to have them, are they just not functional?

    I'm hopefully about to buy one, and all this time I didn't realize it until doing some more research today. Hum.. what a bummer.. I know its just lights, but still.

    Agree with you TTU19. Have a Limited and thought it had them, but only has regular lights and chrome square pieces inside the light that "look" like LEDs. Got screwed on that one as well. Should have paid more attention to the details and not assume anything.

    Looked at Spyder lights as well. Saw something about them not having some features of the OEM lights (auto dimming or something)?

    How do you like the Spyder lights? I've seen a lot of guys adding them and they look awesome. Pretty easy to install, not had any problems with them? May have to look into them as well.

    I have the spyder leds they look great only thing the auto leveling feature doesn't work wich I don't mind
    I know there is a way to get the leveling motors to work but I don't think they are really needed imo

    My understanding is that after-market headlights don't come with leveling motor. Does Spyder unit come with one?

    I just installed my Spyders a few days ago. Haven't had them on long enough to see if there will be any problems, but the install was fairly easy. Quality is decent, not as good as OEM. I changed over the H9 halogen bulbs that came with it to some PIAA 4150K halogen bulbs and the light output looks as good as stock.

    No the Spyders don't come with leveling motors. I've been told that you could transfer the OEM motors to the Spyders though. That will probably be a project I'll take on someday.

    Seems like a lot of people buy this though, so should be a pretty solid product.
