    Hello. I will be getting my default 2012 Prius headlights replaced, and I am seeking recommendations. Ideally, I want something that is of good value - I can't set a budget because I know too little about how much I should spend. Also ideally, I want the brightest headlights I can legally have in California. Driving at night makes it a bit difficult because my headlights don't seem too bright; when I drive other people's cars, their default headlights seem to be much stronger.

    Thank you!

    Along with headlight HID/LED upgrade, perhaps time for a headlight cover polish/restoration? :cool: It's relatively cheap, $10-20 material and some muscle use?

    My 2014 is starting to get cloudy and haze, I assume your 2012 is a bit worst on the haze? I found the driver side headlight is a bit worst than passenger side, probably due to inverter is sitting at driver side. Reason? Few times after I washed my Prius I can see warm moisture condensing on the driver side headlight housing coming through the hood. Take a close look next time you wash your car with a warm engine. :LOL:

    Led headlight conversion. Brighter than halogen and legal with a nice cut off line.

    I just installed a pair of Hikari Ultra LED's on my 2013 and they're AWESOME!!!!!!! They're 10 million times better than the standard bulbs. $90 on Amazon but Bulbfacts has a 10% off code :D
