Your eyes trick you, it's just a normal IS.

gotta get my eyes checked. Even when you tell me its the same, it still looks different. LOL...thanks anyway. Probably a trick with the lighting or something. The bootlid looks a little squared off at the top section

Now you have one less thing to worry about! I wish we had these on our USDM cars. There have been some times when it's been pouring and I know the people behind me couldn't see me and they would have come in handy.

Since I got tired of trying to find the harness, switch, relay... basically all the parts for the actual rear fog lights... I just decided to just take out the tail out, go buy a 194 bulb harness and connect it along with the existing led on the tail light... the results...

I already did for my wife's is350... just never got around posting a picture of it...

Wait what? Is there a slot there already for a 194 bulb?

nope... you have to get the connection itself at your parts store, then its just a matter of drilling and wiring.

Interesting... I have no issues wiring and drilling, how was the bulb mounted in the drilled hole? Thank you!

*EDIT* Ahh a 194 bulb harness. This got me thinking!

once you drill the hole big enough, you get a file to make little slots so when you twist in the harness its more secure.

You may have to take it off and on due to bulb meaning, it may be too dim or too bright... you might get the pink affect.

If you were to use a LED 194 bulb it will be way too bright compared to the rest, if you were to use a regular amber 194 bulb, it may give you the right brightness... In my case my wife's is350 I had to use a pair of amber 194 bulbs, then on my ISF I just used regular clear 194 bulbs.
