Any ideas for improving low-beam headlights?

I've seen some good threads on upgrading the high beam lights. Any ideas on the low beams? Nothing exotic, just better light without annoying other drivers. Curious and open to suggestion. Thanks.

First, they will loosen up over time. Just curious, did you use an aftermarket product (i.e.: Strongarm) or OEM. I used Stongarm in my LS400 and wife's Honda. They worked great.

Maybe a dumb question. If you are considering a'05 LS and the tuba is an issue, why don't you just try putting it in the trunk?

Zerex Asian is about $13 to $14 a gallon. While I prefer to use Toyota, the Zerex is handy for topping off the recovery tank. I have used it in other Toyota's that I have owned and had no problems....

Sweet Smell - Possibly Heater Core?

In the last few weeks, I have noticed the sweet odor of coolant at start-up. It only occurs one of every four times or so and goes away very quickly. It could be a leak in the heater core. I...

This thread is distressing. At some point, my '02 LS 430 UL with 144k will have to be replaced. My guess is in 3 to 5 years and moderate mileage LS430's will be extremely difficult to find at that...

Your first step should be snow tires. After that, weight in the trunk helps a little. Then, learn to use the snow switch. If the road is snow covered, use it. If clean, it is not necessary. The...

My guess is that it was a BG fluid exchange. The Lexus dealer performed this service on my LS400. The dealer uses the BG machine and additives. You can find information on the BG website.

Leave your all=seasons on. If it snows heavy while you are down south, buy some 50 pound bags of rock salt, sand or other material and put them in the trunk for the return trip.
