Most LED comments compare to Audis. I agree, the 2011 Lexus IS LEDs are nicely done.

Thanks for clarifying. I just ordered the Sewell kit, so it seems I may need to have the body shop that's installing the new lights disable the DRL.

Thanks for the info. As I just mentioned in the previous post, I ordered the Sewell kit. They told me the AFS light simply stays lit, but it sounds like they may be wrong. If it flashes on my car I won't be happy and may not keep the new lights. I'm scheduled to have the Sewell kit installed next Thursday, so we'll see how it goes.

I've got a 2009 350. Which year/model do you have?

Also, I forgot to mention that you'll need a 2011 (HID headlight version) relay flasher to get the turn signals to function correctly. If not, they will flash rapidly as if one of your signal bulbs blew since you're technically going from 2 bulbs in each side to only 1. With the new flasher, everything will work as normal, including arm/disarm flashes. The part is $60, part # 81980-06020. Hope this helps:

so this black harness is the flasher relay? and how many wire did you rewires? so the wire that you cut and type is the LED + wire?

No, this is the connector that plugs the headlight into the rest of the car. The flasher relay is a small cube (no wires) that plugs someplace else inside the car. 1 wire is relocated, and 1 wire is spliced with another. The wire that was cut is partially shown in the first photo, the red one, spliced with the white/black striped wire.

Did you disable the DRLs before you did the installation or after?

thanks, so the red wire you cut is from the headlight? and you tap that red wire to the white with black strip? what about the other end of the red wire? is it the red wire is the LED + ?

The red wire isn't from the headlight, but is one of the 3 wires that plug into the LED strip (beneath the headlight). And yes, red is LED +.
