Will these be like direct plug and play and reusing original harnesses? No need to rewire or getting that relay for the LED to work? Has anyone pull the trigger on these yet?

No. Read my post below (from the previous page).

Are halogen headlights for the IS H11? If so, that means these are an upgrade for halogen headlights only - and you won't even get HID!

Not worth your money ...

No HID = Wack.

The seller on ebay even says: *Fits all 2006-2009 Lexus IS250 with factory halogen headlight models only

It's about time someone made actual aftermarket headlights for our IS's. But IMO, these look pretty cheaped out which makes sense with the pricing.. Honestly, i'd be worried on how well the projectors are during night time driving. I also wouldn't be surprised if condensation starts after awhile..

BTW, is it just me or does these headlights look more round around the projectors? It reminds me of ET or a goldfish ...






But hey, they provided a nice DIY on how to remove bumper and headlights .. (not a fan of the turn signal)

Yeah, the projector chrome surrounding is large. The dimensions of the LED strip is disproportional to the original too - I think they attempted to make everything bigger lol.
