The only way around this would be to access the OEM wiring cover which is below the light housing and would probably require removal of the bumper or mucho access while on a lift. The wiring harness for the lights are INSIDE the dust cover, which requires routing the light wiring and the harness wire for one side. The other harness is not used. Both lights can be installed with only removal of the air cleaner housing. You will find a lack of space to secure the ballasts/etc.

Another nice addition is the 5-LED parking light replacement. The site I used was V-leds.com. They cost about $13.00 shipped. I had the blue ones and switched to the lighter blue ones. The blues were too wild for me.

I'll try to figure out picture posting and send some photos.

No condensation.

Thanks for the good info.

Yeah mine too. It's got everything I need. The over $40,000 price is what kept me out of a GS. I'm glad I waited though.

i bought my kit off ebay, hella and phillips. my kit had instructions, but it did not have rubber grommets. i had to drill 1" holes in the back of the head light cover to accomodate the wires and grommet. ( grommets had to buy at discount auto). there are some pics and a tutorial that has exactly what im talkn about floating around here. so far, its been good. i sealed the grommet and the hole where the wires go thru with silicone 2 times. hopefully thatll keep away the moisture.

In my case, the IS250 was considered only by default; you can't knock it if you haven't at least tried it. The IS, once veiwed in person, really looked good in Glacier Frost Mica, Crystal White and Desert Sage Metallic. Every color had it's merit; therefore, it was extremely difficult choosing the right color for my IS. Initially I was set on SGM w/G spider rims, sport pkg, ML, NAV, PT and spoiler. Of course that would have been a special order and way more expensive. After much contemplation I later decided that I really didn't like the way that most of Lexus' packages were grouped together. All of the interior and exterior colors are beautiful; however, here are the specs on mine:

IS350
Crystal White
Sterling Leather (did not want another black or beige interior)
18's
Wheel locks, cargo net, mats

IMO the above color combo, with the 18's, in either GFM or CW is simply stunning.

I knew about the XENON headlights not being standard, but I thought LED tailights were standard in all?
