Moar pics??? OK!

So onto my little update!

Some of you know how long I have been waiting for my LEDs .... well, 2 months after I ordered them they finally arrived. Was meaning to post up some pics earlier, but due to work/school/computer having to be fixed, I wasn't able to until now.

The ones I ordered were VLEDs "platinum amber".

No "egg yolk"

Now, with LED turn signals, you get the famous hyper-flash. One solution is to get an aftermarket flasher, and the 2nd is to modify your stock one.

I chose option 2

What you want to do is grind down the metal "U" until the hyper flashing stops... The benefits of doing this, vs buying an aftermarket one, is so you don't get a louder click (Some aftermarket ones may click louder), as well as retain the flash for lock/unlock. (There is a newer flasher that keeps this functionality, but I couldn't get a hold of one).

REVIEW:

These bulbs are bright, and I'm very happy with them! I love the instant on/off of LEDs, and as a lot of other cars are now moving to OEM LED turn signals - I hope lexus does as well.

Thanks!! On the grille, keep an eye out - I'm sure one will pop up. Just note that recently a second type of grille popped up on eBay - you don't want that one. The one you want has horizontal bars being the emblem area. (the new one is just one hunk of plastic in the middle emblem area).

For the exhaust - loud is subjective, but to me it's perfect. Its loud enough where people notice it, and It has a great tone My car is a DD so I didn't want a setup that was too loud or had drone on the freeway.

^haha..... Maybe later

Last week a couple co workers and I went out and did a quick shoot... the weather was weird that day- we had sun, rain, hail, everything,... and and I think the shots came out pretty good.

As always, all comments welcome!

Damm! your car is my inspiration. I like your style. Not too much , yet not too subtle.

Any rubbing with the new setup?
