i thought stock were ~4300k? if so, is your field of vision worse at night? i'm not into yellow so i'm just trying to figure out why people get them.

There's nothing more sexier than a Lexus with yellow fogs! (IMO) Yellow fogs have been a LEXUS things just like angel eyes are a BMW thing. 3000k-4300k share the same lumens produced, which is 3200lumens. They both will produce the same amount of output. Anything above 8000k is pointless and for purely aesthetics.

looks good cosmetically but not really usable as fog lights because of the scatter

I got these on Ebay for $60 shipped. Its the xentec brand and they are very reliable, I've been using this brand for the past year on over 20 different cars with no problems at all. You dont have to take off the bumper to install these, just cut the wheel in all the way and go in from the fender liner, its only like 2 clips and one bolt. took me a total of 20 mins, but of course, im pretty mechanically good at fixing cars, I've been doing it for the past 10 years. And I dont see why ppl are saying these are not gonna be bright. Do you not know how bright hids are? lol I actually didnt get these for brightness. I got them for cosmetics, our headlights are super bright as they are already. I had hid headlights and foglights on my g37 and they can't even compare to just headlights on the IsF.

I thought the IS-F uses the same projectors as the IS250/IS350, which are limited in design by their side entry design. The G37 projectors are better than the IS250/350, at least.

And yup, I did my fog retro not out of need, but for cosmetics. It's awesome to have all these mean projector globes facing out the front end

$60 hids? these are just bulbs right? i thought for hid's in the fog lights we need a whole kit with the converter, ballasts, wiring, etc. because our fogs are regular halogen H11 bulbs...

i've seen people ticketed for those 8k purple lights, anyone ever get pulled over/ticketed for the 6k bulbs?

Lol $60 is for the whole kit with 2 bulbs and 2 ballast, brand new shipped. Punch in xenten hid kit on ebay and click price and shipping lowest first. once you win, tell them you want h11 in 3000k.

Design better or not, the Lexus headlights outshines the Infiniti, I had hid in my fogs on the Infiniti and the fogs are right next to the headlights, Infiniti dont have seperate foglights on the bumper like Lexus, its all in the headlight assembly and with both headlight and hid fogs, the infiniti is still not as bright as the Lexus headlights alone.
