Hi everyone

Just wondering if the new shape Yaris SR 2011 model has a CANBUS system in it as I am looking to install Xenon HID headlamps in them. I wasn't aware of any CANBUS but I'd like to make sure.

And if it does are there any methods or light systems I can use that have resistors or cancellers in them? I spoke to Toyota themselves and they referred me to someone who will install them so that points me to believe there isn't any canbus.

Thanks in advance
Eren

My advice Eren is to leave well alone until you are sure your headlights do not mist up with a milky white deposit in cold weather. You may have seen my posts elsewhere on this problem, but the car is now on its third set of headlights! If you install different bulbs and have trouble it could well be an excuse not to replace them and blame the new bulbs. Just my opinion!

Regards Geoff Peace.

Another thought worth verifying. I think any headlights with high intensity discharge bulbs have to have an automatic self leveling system which is now a testable MOT item when fitted.

Correct Geoff, as well as headlamp washing, and they need to be fitted to projector lamps and not reflector lenses which is was all Yaris' use.

Fitting HIDs in reflector lamps is not only incredibly inconsiderate to all oncoming road users and those you follow, but it also dam right dangerous to other road users at times, as well as illegal.

Better off fitting uprated xneon bulbs such as Osram Nightbreakers and the like.
