Is that a Prius headlight sitting in the box?
LOL good eye, yes those are a Prius headlights that I'm helping a friend do a projector retrofit so he can have some better lighting. The stock Prius headlight sucks and if you just put a HID bulb in there you will blind everyone since the light is not focused.

I only think 4300 looks 'yellowish' if they are next to blue lights... If they are compared to halogen, there isn't any yellow. PLUS, Lexus (IMO) has the best OEM HID lights out there and they are 4300K stock.
At least you didn't use 8000k or 10000k !
Actually we are one step ahead of you
We have a full home theater system with Definitive Technology speakers, a full size fridge (not visible) and a few other amenities. We have a separate bathroom too ~ the only thing missing in the garage is a shower
Actually on my old 99 GS400, the OEM lights were spectacular and very blue. On my 08 IS-F, the projectors suck and I think Lexus must have changed things. The best projectors with the cleanest cut-off is easily the Honda s2000 projectors. They are regarded as the BEST in the market and many people use those projectors when doing retrofits. The CT is pretty good once you do the HID upgrade. We get a very clean cut-off the the output is on par with the s2000 in every way. My wife loves it and that's all that matters.
here's a better shot of the garage from a different angle:
