    LukUsc, maybe there is somewhere in your country where you could track down a set. Good luck.

    Fleabay offers a service, but you may have to contact the seller before purchasing :

    https://pages.ebay.com/buy/globalshippingprogram/faq-buyer.html

    Would bet there are plenty of forwarding services out there, and this one appears reasonable when compared to US international shipping :

    Polamer Inc. - zakupy w USA, paczki do Polski

    Not sure if this option is useful or not, as they don't cater to my language of choice :

    Doma – Shipping – Doma Shipping, paczki do Polski, kontenery do Polski, mienie przesiedleńcze do Polski, samochody, auta do Polski, zakupy w Ameryce<

    Hey
    I tried many alternatives and improvements in its functionality. I can say that the light will not become brighter from LED lamps. Maybe they will just last longer in your use. To increase the brightness of the headlights, you need to think about installing lenses

    I put in the NU VISION LED bulbs. I’ll post an update after I try them out for the week.

    After only a couple of days, I LOVE the LED bulbs! If you’re currently not happy with the Halogen bulbs, I’d highly recommend trying the LED’s. :)

    The trick is to get good quality LEDs that mimick halogens exactly and do not leak light all over the place (blinding oncoming traffic).

    Greetings.

    All these bulbs are a waste of time. If you want modern quality light in your old Gen2 car, you need to install Koito bi led lens. These lenses can be found in Prius C, RAV4 and other non-old Toyota models.

    Accidental mention of these lenses and the Prius:

    That's correct but not everybody wants to bake their housings and pull the mess apart to put in the shutter and a projector most people in these don't spend that much time at night on the road probably maybe have better things to do and people that do their vehicles are paid for with company money so they tend to get newer things because someone else is paying for it but yeah that's the way to do it No question about it I've thought about it but I don't think so My LED aux beams work really well so we'll let that go and I'm way out in the country where it's real dark No city lights
