I don't think the taillights are LED. They are similar to the ones on the IS. But I'm not 100% sure.

Default Not LED

They're not LED. I've seen them on road and they don't light up instantly like LED, so would presume they're regular filiment bulbs. That's why I'm going to wait until mid cycle, they'll probably give the ES350 LED lights, along with some minor changes.

I doubt very much that Lexus would make this kind of change anytime in the same model year. Maybe the 2008's though.

He meant midcycle of the life of the same model(i.e. if they keep the es350 unchanged for 7 years then maybe by 2010 they might put led's on, I personally think they will have leds by 2008 or 2009 the latest.)

Cool

The life cycle of the ES (Of the entire camry platform in reality) is 6 years, with a mid-generation update at 3. So he's going to be waiting 2 2/3 years for one.

Talking 1/2 Cycle

Yes, I meant mid-cycle as in the whole fifth generation, not mid-cycle as in the 2007 model year. I don't think any manufacturer would change anything mid-cycle, unless it's a total failure or recall of a part.

As for waiting 2-3 years, I'm fine with that. None of my existing cars are going to die any time soon that I'll need the ES350 urgently. I'll let the current craze and buying frenzy settle down and go in on my terms and deal 'smartly' when the time comes.

Also, two years will give Lexus time to smooth out all the small details and 'faults' that the car might have during it's first few years. By 2010 model year, the car should then be PERFECT...

Wow, that would be a shock. Seems like all new Lexus models are getting the LED treatment.

yes , sometimes i cant understand the way these companies think , i know they want to make more money in 2 years or so when they do the face-left for the es 350 but not to the extent of making the car lower than the previous generation in some aspects , hence the LED tail lights

Tail lamps are not, third brake light and plate bulbs seem to be though.

the tail lamps bulbs are easily acessable in the trunk

LED's seems all nice, but I think the separate ECU running the engine and transmission is a fair trade of an upgrade instead of "cool guy" tail lamps-
Holla!
