as you may have seen in my other post, i was trying to sell a pair of brand new Sportsdesign headlamps (complete unit). no takers, so i have decided to keep it. i have the regular foglamps, so i want to change it to the SD foglamps that way it will match the headlamps. my questions are:

*what is/are the difference/s between the regular fog lamps, which came stock with the regular IS300 sedan from the 2003 Sportsdesign fogs? the regular is yellow. is the SD white?

*is this a direct bolt on when switching from the regular fogs to the SD fogs? i was just on the phone with a rep from Putnam Lexus and i was told that the sockets are different between the regular fogs and the SD fogs.

*how much is the SD fogs? well its time to replace my fogs anyway, 'cause the lenses are chipped from debris. i will be ordering some xpell (sp?) when everything is installed.

i also left a voicemail to Steve @ Carson Toyota just now. i hope he's in the office today.

the JDM Neo/L-Tuned fog lamps are available either YELLOW or BLUE....I like the yellow, I think it helps the IS stand out.....

i guess Steve is busy, so i spoke with Gordon (nice guy btw...patient unlike the other parts dept. rep around me) @ Carson Toyota. i got the white fogs and hopefully i get them by the week end. does anybody have the white fogs? if so, could you please post pic of how it looks like?

i can't imagine their low prices compared to the dealerships around me...


i am getting the pair at around $340 :D + compared to $400-$600 i was quoted from three different Lexus dealerships around me.....

JDM Altezza fogs will not fit on a 2003 correct?

-Ringo
correct.

the JDM fogs use a 9006 bulb while the 03 IS use a different bulb. you guys should try contacting LexIS307. he went through all the trials and tribulations but he was able to hotwire somehing to make it work.

Ray... I can get that to work ;) I hot wired my JDM Neo fogs 2yrs ago. I personally like the Yellow fogs.. its what makes Lexus. that been there signature since waaaaaaay back in 1992 when I thought the ES300's were gangsta with those little yellow projector fogs :lol:
