check xenon depot they are sponsors here, your headlights are 4300K HID. or check fleabay. i'm not sure if your fogs are LED or halogen. 5000K LED fog bulbs should come close... i'm not sure so don't quote me. i'm sure members will chime in with an answer.

I have these on my GS and have used these plug and play LEDs on a few Lexus models I've had.
A bit whiter due to the 4300K HIDs but a nice match.

Here is a newer version that may be better.

I'm guessing using these would be more for aesthetics right? How do they compare in output to the stock fogs?

Yes,aesthetics.
The stock bulbs don't have much more light output.If you want real light output,HID fogs are the only way to go.
The light output of the headlight HIDs is fine.If more light is needed,I use the high beams.

Oh ok cool. I'd have to have foglights installed before I make a decision on HIDs or LEDs though lol.

Y,got to go HIDs if light output is important.

These LEDs I have in have Luminous Intensity: 400 lm
http://www.vleds.com/bulb/9000-serie...06-1-pair.html

These newer version LEDs throw out more light at Luminous Intensity: 725 lm
Don't know if that would be enough for you.
I don't know what the stock bulb lumen number is.

Picture won't show exactly light output, just an idea how it look like.

Here is the lumen output for each bulb:

The H11 Nokya LED or V3 Triton or Samsung H11 LED produces 600 lumens MAX. (1200 for both side - advertise number)

The stock H11 55W produces 1400 lumens and Silverstar Ultra up to 1800 - 2100 lumens.

35W HID 4300K produces 3200 lumens.

35W HID 5000K produces 3000 lumens.

35W HID 6000K produces 2800 lumens.

Factory OEM HID always 4300K because the best bright output but a bit yellowish look.

Factory OEM LED headlight have at least 2 or 3 projectors to spread out the light pattern.

Got to go HID fogs if you want to see a difference on the road.Stock bulbs don't do much and LEDs are for aesthetics which is fine with me.

Hey faifai,

Which LED bulbs are you using?

Do you think these will fit? It has a bigger base and not sure if there's enough room.

Hmmm... I wonder if an ls460 projector will fit in those fog housing. I wonder if its even a good idea to out projectors in a fog. Do you guys think it's okay to put a projector fog on high beam mode? It won't blind people like an HID would (at least I don't think it would because of the cutoff and low position).
