    I have a 2013 Prius Persona with regular headlights, but when I bought it just recently they didn't match in color. (Also most of my small lights like parking and front side running lights were blown)

    One was whiter and one was more yellow. I thought it could be from oxidation or maybe the headlights bulbs didn't match. I bought nice new compatible led lights and noting that the ones I pulled out were identical stock bulbs that looked fine, I put the LEDs in, and drivers side is more blue than the other which is more white. SO I then restored the headlights with Maguire's headlight heavy duty kit, and the headlights look great, but still the lens around the led bulbs looks blue on the drivers side which was the brighter side when I drove it originally.

    Any ideas what's wrong or what I should do? I am about to maybe take it to Toyota and see what they think.

    I love the car I just got it after I was hit and my Forester was totaled.

    It sounds as if one of the light was changed out -- possibly one is OE and the other aftermarket?

    You change bulbs in pairs as the general rule.

    what I meant is I changed both to led, and one side is a different more blue color.

    It was different colored before with the halogens too. one side was more yellow
