Hi all,

Hey - love my CT so far - but...

One thing I think we got "cheap-ed out" on is the lighting, both exterior and interior.

I looked around to find some reference on bulbs - I collected what I could, and figured someone else could benefit from the info.

Below is the Lexus Part Number, Reference Number, Quantity, Description, wattage and bulb number of all the bulbs I know of in the car.

I've already replaced the headlights and foglights (headlights with HIDs, fogs with halogens that are "whiter" than stock, as they looked pretty yellow next to the HIDs).

If you see errors or have other comments, they are welcome. My next plan is to replace the interior lamps (Map/Dome/Rear Cargo/Vanity) with LEDs and replace the license plate lamps with LEDs too. I'm not going to replace the high beams, turn signals or backup lamps, as they aren't on all that much, and I don't know if the turn signals need a resistor pack / relay to function correctly. I'll need to take a look at the exterior mirror one too and decide if it's worth the hassle too.

Like I said - hope it helps!

I'll be changing some of my interior lights too - just like I've done with previous cars in the past.

One thing really bothers me though. If this car is supposed to be all about 'green', then why weren't LED lights used in all the interior lights as well? Just seems to make sense?

Anyone managed to change that tiny festoon bulb in the trunk? I have looked on the web but the only 28mm versions seem to be coming from Hong Kong and neither the sellers or the product seem to be reliable.........
Well got my festoon to fit with a little DIY, you need to bend the end the unit that does not have the switch on it, didn't want to do anything at that end just in case something snapped, then it was just a case of straightening the connetors so that they would fit into the plug and away she goes! Switch is slightly stiffer but I am not too bothered about that, had the same unit on my IS250 and I don't think I ever switched it off.

Gleaned from another thread on this forum, I saw where a lot of people here are ordering this package that includes a lot of what you're looking for: Tony's Luxurymods

haven't ordered it yet, but probably will soon. Hope that helps.

The thread I got this from (on this forum) is here.

I don't have any connection with by the way.
