Official: USDM 2014 IS350 F-Sport w/JDM LED Fog Lamps Installed, Pics & Video Inside!
So today Tommy from "MusicBox" & I, successfully installed the OEM JDM spec LED Fog Lamps onto a US spec Lexus IS350 F-Sport.
These parts were acquired via CL Vendor @NigelJDMparts..
He was excited to set up a Group Buy for the US owners..
His kit includes these Lexus Japan OEM parts:
2 - L&R JDM LED Lamps, 2 - L&R JDM Fog Covers, 1 - Stalk Switch w/Fog On-Off Function and an aftermarket harness.
*As most of you know, as of today, the JDM specific parts are not available via the Lexus USA parts distribution centers.*
These are indeed directly imported from Japan.
The JDM parts naturally bolt right onto the US F-Sport bumper. The simple reason for that is only one bumper mold design is produced for the Global Market.
We already learned this on the 2013 GS F-Sport conversions we have done.
So the proper mounting points are just sitting there waiting to be used.
1) You can Not buy these parts via a Lexus USA parts depts.
2) There is NO Fog wire harness or connectors inside the F-Sport bumper.
3) The physical parts bolt into place without any modifications or brackets.
4) The aftermarket harness is a good quality, but does take experience to properly route the wiring.
5) The OEM stalk function is a great feature, but it does take experience to properly wire to the existing aftermarket harness we used.
6) Steering wheel & Airbag removal is required if you select to install the OEM Fog Light stalk.
7) Install skill level is definitely not for the novice.
8) I definitely recommend an experienced installer that understands Fog Lamp / wiring installations.
9) The color temperature on the LED Fog Lamps are a perfect match to the LED Headlights.
Special thanks to Tommy @ MusicBox for taking care of the wiring on this install.
NigelJDM parts is awesome for supplying all these fantastic JDM parts...
And of course Many Thanks to local ClubLexus member "Glashub" for wanting these awesome fogs and spending the time today to get it all done right the first time..!!
