Fog lights to HID conversion
No drilling or cutting or splicing required

0. You will need a 10mm socket and 10mm wrench and zip ties
1. Unscrew the lower covers (pics 1, 2, and 3) same on other side
2. Bolt in the HID ballast mount using existing 10mm bolt (pic 4)
3. Place your ballast into the mounted bracket (pic 5)
4. Replace your halogen with HID bulb (pic 6)
5. Connect the wires from car to ballast to HID bulb
6. Test your HID and make sure that it works
7. Put everything back together in reverse steps
8. Do the same thing for the passenger side

*Please note the following
*The kit is 100% Plug-and-play
*Make sure you push the bulb ALL the way in for it to turn
*If it will not turn, you might have to loosen 3 screws that will hold it in

How to adjust your headlights
From what I have noticed, Lo beam moves separately from Hi beam
So you should be able to adjust the Lo beam w/o worrying about Hi beam
Following shots will explain how to adjust your Low beam in 01-03 LS430

The LED that I have for dome light, does not flicker at all when it goes dim

Im not touching those or the ones in door handles or under the dash. They provide perfect amount of ambient light that matches my tan interior.

lol. its a new thread. i started a new thread bc the other one was only for interior lights, but i realized that it needs a new threat title and I also wanted to have ALL the info about ALL of the lights in the car in one thread and in the first few posts (hence the reserved space). after im done here, this will be the one and only "GO TO" thread about everything that lights up or glows in the ls430. so keep checking back, bc lights are cheap and its always fun to mess with and to get exactly what you want, so you can have that unique look about your car.
