Of course they will. These bulbs will not work with cars that did not come stock with HIDs.

I've never actually heard of a non-HID 3GS.

Take a look at the first post on this thread and you'll find your answer.

sorry to bring up old thread but does your 194 Super Wide Angle parking LEDs (Super White) produce pure white light or blue/purple tint when lit?

mercury free and uses less voltage. 36V vs. 81V (D2S)

you'll have to find D4S bulbs and no, Philips don't make 6000k D4s Application

negative, those are the 5800k Philips XenEco bulbs, apparently it completed disappeared off the face of the planet, if anyone can find it. Please do share

trust me, i've used up all my contacts for HID. No one knows about these bulbs anymore

* FYI, philips never made bulbs higher than 6000k

i have been wanting to change the hids to 6000k on my gs but always thoought the light output sucks even with stock hids. i would imagine the lens we have on the projectors are the culprit since it is rigid. would changing the lesn to a clear TSX lens make a difference?

gonna quote myself. actually, i take it back, those 6000k he posted aren't Philips but the ones that Xenon Valet made. the base does not have the Philips markings.

If you think the light output sucks on the oem bulbs, 6000K will only make it worst. I had 6000K in my old car and in the rain, its almost like having no headlight. I swap them back to the 4300K.

damn. that sucks because 6000k looks really nice. but i think im going to buy a separate lexus gs headlight. change lens and maybe the projector and reinstall to soo if that will make a difference but later when i get paid. i have done the lens swap on pretty much all my cars and it improves the cutoff, sharpness and output. ill give it a go.
