Bulbs will dictate the output. HIDs look HAWT.

No, the fogs come with normal halogen bulbs, nothing blue/hyperwhite/purple/"HID look"/8000k etc,

you know you can mod your stock fogs to get that "JDM look"

bulbs can be bought at almost any local car shop

i thought that you can't just simply change the bulb on the stock foglights? People have told me that i can't just buy the bulb, i need the jdm ones if i want them white.

like baadhabit said, you can get rid of that yellow look on the stock ones, if you search youll fing a DIY step by step process of how to do it, or be lazy like me and buy jdm ones. I have hid's in mine too and boy do i love it. Check my sig for pics

you mean the yellow part?. yeah thats right. thats not a bulb, its a lense. the bulb is behind that. but someguys have opened up the fogs and sanded down the lense to clear out the yellowness. search around. theres instructions somewhere

OR you buy the JDM fogs, just make sure you get the right ones for your car. depending on the year of your the bulb harness thingy was changed. i know my 01 uses 9006 bulbs. i dont know about the other years

OR the other option is to leave it yellow. i personally like the yellow. its one of the things that makes the IS stand out. IMO the yellow fogs, gauge cluster and tails are part of the IS signature

Yep I got a set from ebay. I am going to convert them to USDM yellow ones. Just bought them because my originals were sandblasted.

So you are going to open a set of JDM lamps and paint a yellow lense?


Or just get a Yellow MTEC bulb for them


Same dif ;)

Or you guys can buy the Canadian spec fogs from '02 and newer
ISs... Probably alot easier to ship from Canada to the US than Asia
to US... I don't even mind shipping a set over (I'll find out how
much they are from Lexus)

They're white BTW.

I've always wondered why the Americans never bought the Canadian fogs instead of JDM <shrug>. I guess CDM doesn't have the same ring as JDM ;)

To each his own.

yeah considering you can just get the regular OEM ones cheaper, and not have to risk the fogging and the leaking like you will with taking the JDM ones apart

(since the only dif is a colored lense)
