Yeah, you got it. They're just little white LED's. I work at Lexus of Portland when I'm not at school, the parts department hooked it up with some of the bulbs. I'd post pics but I don't have any on my computer and my car is in storage back home.

Oh and if any of you get bored one afternoon, go test drive the new LS 460... it's not like anything you'll ever drive! [drive]

And if you like the LS 460, wait another year or two for the 480hp hybrid version with even more rediculous features... the LS 600h

If you liked the IS300 check out the new IS350, the difference between the two is like the difference between a stock 1.8t and a chipped S4. Kinda... haha

whipperD, could you post before and after pics if you have them, or just pics with them in? that would be greatly appreciated.

explicit, i can help you get the lights out if that is what you need. i took mine out to paint them but that didnt work so i could help you if you want cuz they are really easy to take out.

They're probably just sold out or the link changed... I'll see if I can find them later today.

Got mine yesterday. 6 LEDs in each "bulb."
1" exposure.

(Keep in mind I have a license plate cover as well, which keeps a lot of the light out [:D] ).
