Concealing the dry cell battery and isolator hard work?

Yea, I agree with you on tinting the tailights. I wanted to tint mine, so it doesn't look like the other RX330/350s.
i will post up my thread of the install of my WAAG grill guard today along with my dry cell battery.relay install. The relay/battery wasn't hard at all, just wiring up stuff through the engine bay/firewall and using a dremel to custom fit a place for the battery. I love it though

I was thinking of changing the wedge bulb on the headlights, but I wasn't sure what the type of bulb used. I was searching through the RX330/350 forums, and apparently their wedge bulbs are type 168, but I'm not too sure if they are similar to the 400h. Anyone can confirm the type of wedge bulb used for 400h? Any help be appreciated!

Thanks!

So apparently, I just found out that the parking light bulbs are type 168.

Anyways, I also switched out my drl or my high beam bulbs again. I swapped out my old PIAA bulbs to this new Sylvania Ultrastar.

So I just wanted to revive this thread, because I wanted to update and see if anybody else have updates on their vehicles. So so far, I have added a Vais SL2Vi unit and finally changed out the wedge bulbs to LEDs. I'll post up pictures of the LEDs. And pictures of the Vais unit in action with video playing.

I'm happy with the results of the LED color. It's way better than the stock halogen look wedge bulb.

i put LED's in my interior in the meanwhile, they are awesome plus you can use them when you're driving around, it doesn't distract the driver like a normal bulb would. im going to see if I can fit the doors with lEd's as well as the trunk, but the interior lighting is much improved now. pics to come

i also put some custom 6x9s up front the most expensive pioneers you can buy, pretty sweet speakers if you ask me, since i couldn't get my car equipped with the ML its a TON better now, night and day difference, as I have bass blockers on the rear speakers my sound system can crank to 50+ volume without distortion at all! I love my new and improved sound system!!

Question for you... When you installed the Vais SL2Vi, did you also perform the mod to over ride the unit so that the video will play even when the vehicle is in motion? If so, how? Is it the same mod in a post that shows how to mod for bluetooth and address entry while vehicle is in motion?

Cheers,

Has anyone on ClubLexus done Airrunners on their RX? I'm just waiting for some extra cash and that will probably be the next mod on my list.

tod071, you are in Hawaii, have you talk to TrendyTodd ? I'm sure he has pictures of his customers that had air runners installed on their RX. TrendyTodd is also in Hawaii, don't know which island tho
