If you are unhappy with the look and style of your factory-installed Celica headlights, replace them yourself with halo headlights. The factory-installed headlights on your Celica feature internal reflectors that disburse the light of the headlight bulb across the road; halo headlights have a ring around the headlight bulb that focuses the light and projects it into a beam. They also, incidentally, create a halo effect around the beam, hence their name. Expect the installation procedure to take a couple of hours.
