This review was long overdue. I got these after seeing how great they looked on neighbor's IS. Ever since installing these, they've infinitely upgraded the look of my IS250 as well as increased visibility at night (the old headlight lenses were hazy). I don't miss the Lexus AFD feature which you lose once you install these.
Bought these for my 2007 IS 250. I wanted to dump my problematic HID system and these headlamps did the trick. These are plug and play. No need to clip wires. No need to make any modifications. Just swap them out and plug them in. Easy! And they look and work amazingly well! Tons of compliments!
The installation itself was easy. Removing the bumper took 10 minutes. Installing the actual headlamps took under 10 minutes. It was very very easy..
BUT reinstalling the bumper alone was a hassle. It took me about an hour to re align it properly. I would highly recommend help from a friend. This of course had nothing to do with the product, more to do with the stupid bumper brackets under the car and my inability to ask for help.
These lights look great at night and during the day specially the Lexus checkmark that glows brighter since it's wired directly to the battery. Lights are easy to adjust and easy to replace the bulbs when needed. It's a great product and a great upgrade for 06-10 models.
The install was straight forward, simple instructions and they look great.
Not too hard of an install on my 09 IS350. Works as advertised out the box. One concern was that one of the individual headlight boxes was packaged upside-down in the main shipping box, even though the boxes are marked with right side up arrows. Did not seem to affect my headlight, but I don't know how critical it is for safe shipping. One of the headlights also shipped with no protective plastic over it. Again, did not have an affect the headlight, but still odd that identical parts were shipped differently. My OE headlights were fogged up and one of my ballasts were going out so it was time to be replaced. Went with these over VLANDs and HCmotion because I like the look. As described in the product description you will lose AFS and the halogens are a downgrade from HID's because of reduced light output. You can remove your AFS dash light by simply removing a fuse. Swapping the bulbs for LED's in my opinion, would improve these over the stock HID's. Took the opportunity when I had my front bumper off to swap to an F sport grill and yellow fog light housings. Glad I no longer have ballasts to worry about, hopefully these work reliably for years to come.
