Out with the old, in with the new. I finally found a set of inner lights for my car for a very good price. The previous owner of my car was involved in a little fender bender which broke one of the corner lights. He replaced the lenses on both sides, but they came from the newer MY ES. I ended up with mismatched tail lights, which was really bugging me. I liked the the look of the clear turn signals, so I decided to upgrade to the white/red tail lights, instead of going back to stock.





Got home today at 11:30pm. Took me about 40 minutes to replace them in the dark with a flash light. (I couldn't wait). So I'll post the after shots tomorrow.

p.s.: someone should make this thread a sticky.

Did you go through the parking/corner lights or did you do it from underneath?

Watch out with those fog lights. 35W slim ballast kit] And this was a but of PITA to do, but its do-able. Takes a few minutes more when messing with the cap to feed the wires thru, i drilled a hole in the back and siliconed it afterwards. These are mine after 4 mos of use; [chrome peeled & bubbled,

You took the bumper off just to install HIDS? And I'm going to pick her up from the transmission shop today! Happy to get her back, but not so happy on the price for the U140E rebuild.. :/

Bought two rear wheel bearings. Need them installed. Hope that's all it takes. Spun out on a patch of black ice two days ago... Smashed into the curb at 20kmh.
