Default F-sport Fogs

There seems to be a majority opinion here in the US that people hate how the GS Fsport doesnt have fogs. I personally like the appearance without the fogs because it looks more aggressive.
So who likes them the way they are? And who thinks the F sport should have them?
Also, has anyone tried modding them in?

After looking at the pictures again, the fogs to me looks cheaply integrated into the non F- Sport.
I'd might reconsider if they come out with a differednt design or shape for the F-Sport. For now i vote no.

Lexus should make LED fog light standard and all turn signal LED for front & back. LED is cheap enough for Lexus to replace the tungsten bulbs so their owner don't have to mod or envy with ALL LED Audi/Benz.

I feel Lexus/Toyota kind of hold back/skimp on some basic standard options compare to Audi/Benz and even Hyundai. Example are power trunk closing, power folding mirror and even on 2011 Sienna Limited i owned there are no gas struct for hood, no light inside glove box and back up camera quality barely seen at night/distort color at day.

But their products for Asia market are well equipped due to owner demand. Example are all Camry have standard HID headlight, LED taillights, memory seat, dual power seat, power folding mirror, rear console media control, leather seat standard, rear power sunshade/ side manual shade.....etc.

OK I've gotta admit, VIP did an awesome job integrating those fog lights into the F-Sport.

think it looks good stock. however if there were different shaped led fogs,,,, like horizontal across the lip underneath that plastic piece that serves no purpose. or at a slight vertical on the side lip. ( don't know what it's called )

Fogs are nice, and as per about the VIP treatment is well done. But I like mine as is. A few of my buddies call my car "The Darth Vader" car, and one of them said that if he didn't know me and saw the car in the driveway, he'd be afraid to knock on the door.

They're probably just inflating my ego - but regardless I think fogs take away from the aggressiveness of the front.

I vote yes for fog lights on the F Sport. I think the VIP picture looks good and shows that fog lights could be integrated nicely into the look of the F Sport.

I like how the fogs are seperate from the bumper and more in the lower grill inserts on the VIP F- Sport. I don't like the "in the bumper look" of the ones on the non F-Sport.

VIP..???

The photo was taken & provided by Lexon in Japan.... Not VIP..

You are looking at the JDM Spec F-Sport GS350....... The market outside of the US gets fogs on the F-Sport......

And MY opinion is that the US should have them..!!!

I my opinion the F-Sport looks better with fogs. Does anyone know why the US version decided not to go without fogs while other countries have them?

Yes, but let's keep that debate out of this thread.....

i am sure you will be able to add fogs soon enough... to me it looks a lot more agressive without them.
