Scion 10 series headlights

So I doubt anyone already knows any for sure info and I didnt see a thread already about this topic besides the one that was talking about the whole car. So are the headlights on the 10 Series FRS going to be plug and play? It would make since that this would be the case. Also when will the dealers be able to get these? If any one finds anything post up please.

I doubt it, the car will most likely be wired like the gt86 and you will need to do the same mods you would have to do to get a jdm 86 light to work.

If dealers do have ability to sell them to non Series 10 owners, I assume like all "special" products from Release Series' it will be stupid expensive.

When I owned my tC RS1, there were a LOT of people who owned standard tC's wanting to replace their front grille with the clean black metal one from the RS1. Turns out it was something ridiculous like $300 for each piece or something. I think they price it specifically to promote the exclusivity of these models. They don't want the stuff on every "regular" one.

That's to get it 100% OEM. But someone may eventually devise a custom harness to make it work. You already have the battery and the lights. You just need a way to correctly connect the two (usually involves a relay and some wires, maybe some kind of circuitry, and the ballasts). I did exactly that with my Celica and OEM HIDs purchased separately and connected via a custom harness.

Couldn't remember what it was off-hand (because I never needed it :P) but yeah, I remember it was ridiculous.

the 86 headlights have both LHD and RHD version

so scion is using the LHD version for the series 10

Don't forget you'll need the lever and all the other stuff to make it work, not to mention they might not even sell it to you. It may for some become the most expensive aesthetic mod of the car, since the argument that I need HID is invalid because you can get HID for $300. We're basing the price off the BRZ headlights, which currently run 684-800$ each that's just the lights nothing else. So you do the math from there. I'm sure someone is gonna get them anyways just if you want to pay for it.

The cars arrive in June so I give it a month after that for part, a month to 3 months, remember they do have issues in logistics with this, part for these are are harder to get than normal due to demand and the fact that only one factory produce these parts.

I think people are safely assuming it is the EDM LHD GT 86 headlights just D.O.T. approved.

I'm not sure that the left light is adjusted lower than the right (to compensate for highway crowning). Usually the beam cutoff is lower on the left side then slopes up to the right for *each* headlight. Here's a sketch of the left and right beam patterns I'm talking about:

____/-------- _____/-------
(Left cutoff) (Right cutoff)

When the car is released and part numbers are out, then we can know more about it. Until then its assumptions here and there.

That's the full housing Zaku; lights/bulbs/projectors, ballasts, and wiring. No switch though.

I expect the headlights to cost around 2-3K for the set.

There's no reason the dealer wouldn't sell them except for price and availability. Just find a VIN on ebay or autotrader of the series 10 and call them up with it and say you need headlights.

the BRZ headlights with bulb/ballast are around $800 each.. i would expect once these are available they will be around the same for the brz owners that want this you should be able to swap bulb/ballast so it should be around $475 Each.

They probably won't give them to you.

Ask any FJ owner with black TRD wheels and see what they have to go through to get a replacement wheel.
