Just curious.. does anyone actually have pictures of them on an is300??

You can search all day long, but no real pics on an is300.. and since i know that at least ONE person on this forum has them.. can you do us a favor and post the pic please?

thanks

Saw them on my friends white IS300 and wasn't impressed at all. They look better than they do on the internet, but still whack in my opinion.

probably not the "real" pic you want, but maybe more than you have seen. They give a cheap look imo

I like how they claim they are DOT approved, because the original OEM outter clear lens is still used. Genius.

I must agree. An oridinary pair of tails will cost maybe $50-$100 less. The cost of the LEDs alone would surpass that.

actually they could be dot approved. why? because a red reflector is present.

btw depo actually makes a lot of stock replacement tails and heads for many car manufacturers, they are good quality products. seriously, do you guys need to take jabs at "made in china"? i don't think so

ding ding ding.. correct on the legal point.
the red inner lense is actually a reflector.. hence, they are still legal.

FFFFugly AS ALL HELL!!!

only way to even consider running those is to SMOKE the hell outta the clear lens with either spray tint or Laminex type colored film...


basically so you CANT see them.... ;)

The point is, that DOT inspection is null and void after the lense is removed.

I know the legalities of tail lights, I researched them for a few hours before getting a custom pair.

they told me the tailights are going to be expensive
$425 is the wholesale price
to much money for something that looks cheap

Depo lighting is TAIWANESE fella's. Oh and I agree, they are ugly and they are crap.

DEPO's products are known to cloud and discolor. :rolleyes:

If they do use the OEM KOITO lense then I'm not sure if they would.
