Keeping the highbeam functionality with LED will require kits and installation that I am not in the mood for. This was a inexpensive plug and play that performs wonderfully for my Lexus GS.

If you want to keep your highbeam functionality I believe one of the vendors (XenonDepot) here on this thread may have some options.
Ahh, good to know.

The Morimoto 2stroke 2.0 that just came out can also function as high and low beams

Check out this video from a 4runner which helps demonstrate the lights:


Hi Danny, I am seriously considering a set of your 9005 bulbs with the DRL LED drivers for my '10 LS 460. My needs are opposite a lot of people on here in that I live in a rural area and do a lot of driving on country roads where my high beams are actually important/helpful so I need to have (good) functioning high beams. I was looking at LED replacements for their high beam functionality vs the DRL since with the LS I can shut the DRL function off via the menu options. However if you have a system that will work for both (and not be blinding to people during the day as DRLs) then it will be worth the extra $$$ for me to invest in your system. I have a couple of questions for you:

1.) What is the difference between the "XT-LED_9005-PRO" and the "XT-LED-9005XS-PRO"? Does the "XS" stand for extra small?
2.) Can you confirm that these bulbs/drivers will fit inside the LS 460's headlight assembly and still be able to reinstall the factory dust cap?
