    Hey ladies and gents.

    So the other day my neighbor gave me a pair of head lights for a scion. He said his son used to have a TC and had extra headlights from when he had an accident of some sort. He gave me the headlights thinking i had the same model TC. I have to 08 projectors. These are the ones that came on the TC originally before the new 08 TC came out. Not sure how to tell if there the original OEM headlights or possibly aftermarket . Was thinking of putting them up on ebay but i wouldn't feel ok about selling something that wasn't going to work. Any suggestions on how to tell if these headlights are legit? If anyone needs some headlights let me know i checked them out and there in very good condition. Just a nice clean with a wet rag would do the trick.

    To identify an OEM headlight from a knock-off, look on the bottom corners of the headlights, there will be a DOT Serial Number and the word (Koito).

    The right headlight as a bunch of thing on it. But i do see where is says DOT. If i read it from the turning signal to the middle (Left to Right) it reads. HB4 VOL then huge space in between then it says. EE-TY805 EAGLE EYES HB3 SAE HRAIPP2 03 DOT R

    The left headlight reads as follows from the inner light out to the turning signal (Left to right) TYC 20-6690 DOT HB3 HB4 VOL

    Im not sure if any of that mumbo jumbo helps. But by the looks of how different the numbers are, im guessing there not legit.

    The lights sound like they are DOT approved but not the original OEM head lights. If you like the lights, go ahead and use them, or get yourself a set of original OEM Scion tC headlights. I personally like the 08-10 Scion tC headlights compared to the 05-07 headlights. The earlier ones use a reflector and the newer style's are a projector, much cleaner beam of light that doesn't scatter.

    Eagle Eyes known for looking great out of the box but turning to crap sometime after. I know, I have a set of that junk. Stay with your OEM projectors. Are yours damaged or looking for something different?
