I HIGHLY doubt it would go like that.

I had my Led DRLs turned off and I still have the bubbling problem, I think its from the main projector beam..

Yup I'm getting this as well. Hopefully Lexus will do something about it.

But do the LEDs still turn on when you turn your low beams on?

Guys, is this what is happening to your headlamps? I can't really see in the pictures that were posted, but I'm assuming it's the same problem I'm having with mine

Driver's side headlamp is worse than the passenger side.

Yup. Exactly same as mine. Your passenger side doesn't look bad compared to mine. Both of my headlights are like your driver side.

Its the waiting game now. More product reports need to be done. This is similiar to the 2011 es350 drivers door chrome peeling for window switches

Checked the wife's headlights last night, no issues yet... Thought there was but then I realized it was just the light reflecting off the edge of the headlight.

Has anybody with the 2011 IS tried to get them fixed/replaced under warranty? I didn't notice it when I brought it in for its first service, and I'm not due to go back for another 4000 miles (and it's not that big of a deal for me to make a trip to the dealer just for that)

Just curious if anybody has tried?

I still don't have it yet either. I've been checking like every other day in the sun and when it gets dark, outdoors and indoors, and I still don't see anything like in the photos above.

Have it on my 2011 is-F too....Noticed it when i picked up the car, so i doubt if it was caused by projector, i asked dealer to check on their another brand new IS-F...That one had it well, i doubt if it's by design since there is no functionality served by it

I am sure lexus will come out with a new design and replace it.
