There's a couple thing you need to do in order to get your LED strip to work. Take the picture of your headlights and your harness and post them up and i will tell you what i did. Hopefully your headlights came with the blinker harness too... because i had to go to lexus to buy them.

Got my passenger side light in today. Will the covers off of my 2010 ISF lights transfer over to the new lights? Im trying to have little to no surprises once I pull the trigger to take the bumper off

First off, I made a mistake, there is no wire splicing involved. Disregard what I did with the red wire. The only wire that needs to be relocated in the connector for the higher intensity LEDs is the green one (no stripes) needs to be in place of where I have the thinner black one in the photo, and that's it - plug n play. Extremely simple upgrade as it turns out.

Below is an example of the passenger side with the parking light intensity and the driver's side with the DRL intensity. So if you go into a dealership and just turn on the parking light of a 2011 model, all you're getting is the lower intensity parking light LED (aka dimmer LED). However, the DRL intensity LED is BRIGHT, as in Audi bright!

Same here! But I think that once the demand wanes, it will cost less to do down the road....hopefully!

Looks awesome though!!!

Default Installed my upgraded headlights on 2008 IS 250

My 2008 factory HID headlights equipped with AFS were removed to upgrade to the new 2011+ led strip hid headlight. I was nervous at after spending $2600 on ebay for brand new lights fully loaded and new flasher. I followed the exact write up on page 38. Had to tap into wire and also relocated the green wire. To remove pins inside connector I first removed the white alignment sleeve in order to allow pin to pull out.

Like I said in the past, one of the best mods/upgrades for my 07 IS. 2012 headlights makes it look like an entirely different car.

Well worth the money.
