some of the years didn't come with the yellow film. It's a common misconception when people think the clear ones are only JDM. I forget what years, but some of the OEM IS's came with clear fogs.

you could try getting a 3000K HID kit that will emit a yellow light.

Id go with the 3k hid kit like B is300 said. If you dont have the money i ordered some nokya yellow bulbs on ebay for a friend and they look great.

What years would that be?

My 01 had them, I have never seen a US spec IS300 w/o yellow fogs (unless they had a JDM swapped set in) or a DIY job

:suspiciou

Just curious

My IS had clear fogs from factory, but replaced with the 3K hid kit in yellow.

Btw, its an 03, canadian model though if that matters.

Those are some nice fogs. If you want yellow lenses I’m sure you could find someone on here that is willing to trade you.

My guess is... they are aftermarket, made by DEPO or something. I think the clear fogs are pimp, I have them on my car. (I modified the yellows to clear) If it bugs you that much, I'm sure there are plenty of guys on here, willing to trade. You'll probably even find somebody local.

I always thought about getting clear fogs, but sometimes I like the yellow because it is unique to the is300. I would be happy with either one.. I love the housing of these fogs though.. jsut need either yellow and white bulbs or hid.. right now when i turn them on its like a fainted fainted yellow.. any suggestion in HIDs? Im going to check to see if the bulbs are different soon.

LMK some suggestions on bulbs or HIDS.. pics would be appreciated as well.

EBay for a HID kit unless you want really good ones

Pay to play
