The best match to the stock 4300K HIDs to me is a 5K LED.The 5K is a bit whiter but better than the blue of a 6K,IMO.
That's what I've used in the Lexus models I've owned.
I go with 5K with all my changes I buy from VLEDS.
Although,I did use a Sylvania LED in the trunk..

Yeah... For folks who already have fog light housing (premium/luxury editions), maybe an aftermarket LED bulb replacement may be a good option. I've seen V-LEDs being mentioned in other threads - $100 for a pair (1800 Lumens) or $60 for a pair (850 lumens). I think they offer some discount to CL members. I don't think these bulbs are self-leveling like the Lexus branded ones claim to be.

Wish there was a way to compare the Lexus brand to VLEDs (or other third party)

I have the luxury package with the bulb housings and everything..are you saying not to purchase the ones from Sewell and just buy the aftermarket led bulb? I wonder which one is better or lasts longer or looks better...**** I was going to purchase today too I think I should wait to make sure??

$113 a side plus shipping with CL discount.
Nice but I like the full circle illumination of just a LED bulb change on my Luxury.
However,if I had a F-Sport and had to buy a kit,that oem kit would work well..

So you made a change with just a bulb change and not the whole fixture from Sewell?

I have a GS luxury pkg so the fog set up is there.A bulb change is easier,cheaper and a full circle illumination looks better to me than the rectangular oem..

Haha good call man I have the luxury/premium edition as well whatever you wanna call it!

So if I did a bulb change that would mean full circle illuminations compared to what with the part from Sewell?

The new oem fogs have light output in a rectangular fashion vs full circle of the GS w/luxury pkg fogs.
Nice but I like a full lens light output..

I bet you the bulb replacement is easier and I don't have to mess with wiring...so they make a led bulb replacement these days? Been forever since I've even looked at car mods or bulbs or anything lol
