2011 IS250 with no HIDs???

I started a thread about this question but after reading over it, it was quite newb-ish of me. lol so let me be a more detailed...

I recently got a 2011 Lexus IS250. I was under the impression that all 2011+ IS250s all come with HIDs. But after further research, i found out that Lexus also released 2011 IS250s with regular halogen headlights (with projectors) as well. So here is my situation...

I would like to have HIDs on my 250. After doing some reading here in the forums, it seems like doing a HID conversion would be a easy option (and cheaper). But, i do like the LED DRLs as well. I can't seem to find a direct answer to this (and it may be a very simple answer). Could i do a direct switch of headlights to the 2011 HID headlights with LED DRLs? meaning just plug and play without any modifications.

I found these on eBay and asked the seller if they would fit and he said all 2011 IS250s should have HIDs.

here is a link to the auction

i also included a picture of the headlights on my 2011 IS250. as you can see, no DRLs, so no HIDs. will these headlights fit??

thanks in advance for all your help!

Why dont you just change your low beams to HID and your DRL/Highbeam to LED?
Much easier and saves $$

I don't drive fast, I fly low
