Do they come pretty well aimed right out of the box?

Both side with new OEM LED.

The new OEM fog light housing will also fit many Toyota models (at least my Sienna :-D)

I believe so, didn't touch mine. The projector of the LED fogs will fill the gap of the HID and won't glare like HID that I put in old fog housing.

The new OEM LED will look just a bit whiter than the eye brown DRL LED and produce pure white output, like the GS450h hybrid LED headlight or any Prius 5 LED headlight.

The DRL LED look whiter than OEM HID.

Overall they all match very well, 90% IMO. If I have to do it again it will take me 20-25 minutes for both side.

This is what the V-LED's look like. Still debating which one to go for. These are much cheaper

My question with the LED bulbs vs the OEM LED housings is output. Putting in LED bulbs may get you the LED look, but those bulbs in housings designed for halogen bulbs aren't getting you much output. From the pictures we've seen here, these OEM LED housings actually have very nice output with sharp cutoffs.

I'm more form over function with these LEDs.
Not fond of the rectangular light output look vs a full lens light look.
I find the HIDs and LED fogs do enough for light output.

Yeah I'm not sure that I love the rectangular light output either, looks kinda aftermarket in the round opening, but any additional lighting is a plus in my book.

Looks like it matches fairly nicely with the stock HIDs.

I thought about that too - but I'm not sure (read: I don't know) if the difference in the light source (Halogen VS LED) would make a difference in the output/cut-offs.

In other words, the LED housing in the standard halogen housing shouldn't give a light output/cutoff any worse than what the OEM halogen bulb in the same housing would. Maybe the OEM LED housing/emitter would be better than OEM halogen bulb in the OEM halogen housing. (is that what you meant?)

One of the challenges with LED, is they put out visible light...but not a lot of usable light. They have to design specific reflector systems for them to make them put out real usable light.

LED bulbs like the ones people are putting in their OEM halogen reflectors don't put out much usable light, and the reflector housing is designed to focus the light output from a halogen bulb. These OEM reflectors are designed to generate real usable light specifically from the LED source.

So, these would have more light output than either the OEM Halogen bulbs in the OEM Halogen reflectors or LED bulbs in OEM Halogen reflectors.

Those look great, ppl with RX350's are also adding them to their cars.

Fog lamps serve no purpose than cosmetics. Even if you must live in very dark unlit parts of the country, that's what your high priced HID headlights are for. I'm sure there are the 1% of drivers who will claim that fog lights help them see better at night. LOL But in the end, it's 99.9% cosmetics so pick what you think looks good.

I personally feel turning the foglights on lights up an area in front of the beam created by the HID headlights (meaning closer to the car). Whether that improves visibility or safety I don't know...

I had fog lights on my last car and it does fill in the first few feet or so of asphalt in front of the car, missed by the headlights. But does it improve driver visibility or car visibility to other drivers? Nope. It does look cool though.
