Are fog lights for these cars really expensive and in short supply/high demand or something?

When I was installing HID fogs in my 3GS I was cursing the fact that you can't remove them from the front of the car at the time but I guess maybe I see at least one benefit of that design now.

these are high priced especially for the yellow gs400/430 models. the regular clears are not as popular for some folks but still premium priced . very easy to steal just 2 screws and it falls right off. i believe you can fabricate a second bracket since there is alot of room to play behind the wheel area but most people just get the security screws and hope for the best.

Shame on Toyota for making it easy to steal.
On the upside, our cars are reletively easy to work on.

On the downside, it's reletively easy to steal things from them.

I believe retail price for each new fog is $220 something but can be found a lil cheaper. I and many others here have purchased replacements from other members here although used but in great condition. Lexus may have learned from this design flaw and made it less easier to steal on the 3GS just by removing two Phillips head screws from the front on the 2GS.

Sorry to hear OP. A good set of fogs often turn up in the classifieds.

Even if that were a possibility, some retard would try to steal your stuff, get zapped, sue you for hospital bills, emotional distress, etc etc. And you would lose. Awesome right?

I still believe thieves should be treated to death by hatchets.
