Hey guys,
Do you guys know the numbers for the side turn signal bulbs in our headlights? Also the day time driving lights? I need to get some new ones and did not want to go to the dealer for them cheaper than Lexus.
PM me if you guys have some ideas or if you know where to get them. Thanks.

ADDITION TO THIS MESSAGE

BESIDES THE NUMBER, ANYONE KNOW WHAT BULBS TO BUY WITH OUT THE BLUISH STAIN RESIDUDE LEFT ON THE LENSE. IS SEEN SOME TITANIUM COLOR ONES FOR BMW THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO SHINE WHITE. THE COLOR DOES NOT COME OUT AND APPEARS WHITE THROUGH THE HEADLIGHT/TAILIGHT LENSES. I REALLY DONT LIKE THE BLUE APPEARENCE. IT TAKES THE IDEA OF CLEAR LIGHT/BULB.

I LIKE SEING THE WHITE TURN SIGNALS BMW HAVE. IT LOOKS CLEAN.


ARE THEY AVAILABLE FOR OUR IS'S?

I'm gonna take the dealer's free replacements as long as I can get them. (four years total).
For some of us, it is cheaper to go to the local auto store.
Rather than driving 30 miles one way, I would rather visit the closest auto store. :bitching:

On those 1156, what watt do you guys use? Polarg makes a 10W, 21W, and 27W Hyper White bulb. :-?

Ok, great. I would like to match them to my Polarg fronts. Those Polarg look fantastic on the car and since they make a 27 watt too I am interested in how you like yours.

rear turns 1156

Remember to get the "European style" of 1156. I got my first set from PepBoys and it had the holding pins on the socket spaced at 180 deg. Lexus uses the nonsymmetrical pin setting for the socket... so the 180deg pins won't fit.

would 3057a bulbs work on the 7440? I don't think they will but they do look the exact same.

I don't know much about bulbs even though there isn't anything to know about them
I dont know, all i can tell you is that these are the exact ones i bought from the same seller

And they really made a difference in the look during the day cause there is no more reflection of that ugly orange :cool:
