Fog light question

Hey guys, just picked up a 2002 IS300 and really wanted the factory yellow fog lights but noticed mine came with the clear lenses.

Was it only certain model years that got the yellow lenses?
I tried searching and could not find an answer.

The fogs you have are most likely JDM. You can buy yellow light bulbs instead maybe? If not you can buy the yellow lens fogs (01-05 IS300) and then sell your JDM fogs for a pretty penny.

01-05 US models all came with yellow projector fog lights. JDM Altezzas cames with clear lenses. However, the aftermarket scene has blown up for these cars so chances are you have some ebay knock offs.

Some people sand the yellow off the lens as well. Could be modded usdm ones.

I went to check and both my headlights and foglights say "Japan" and there is also "Koito" on it.
Are these USDM OEM or JDM?

My rear lights say "Toyota" so I know those are OEM.

If the plastic outer lens has lines on them like the pic below, they are probably OE JDM clear fogs.


If they don't have those lines, they are probably OE USDM/CDN with the yellow coating sanded off.

If they didn't have the embossed Toyota logo, I would say that they are ebay lights.
