I'm looking to get this thread set up for those(me as well) looking to do a HID mod. Instead of bouncing all over the forum looking for who has what. I think it would be easier to consolidate images into one thread. So if you got an HID kit installed please post an image and describe:

What company
What Wattage
Color Temp

Also weather or not you did your fog lights.

I ran around the Forum and grabbed some pictures from members. The first 3 are of LxTxNx, he is running 35W 5K. The last 2 are of OZ-CT200H and he is running 35W 6K, but to me OZ-CT200H DRLs look different he has an F-sport though im not sure if the DRLs are different.

If anyone else has any other setups feel free to throw them up.

Also here is a link for some more HID info this may help some make the decision on what color they may want.

I just picked up my car, I was wondering if the Sylvania SilverStar ULTRA Bulbs for low beam headlights will match the DRLs? I'm hesitant to go HID Kit route as I've never had good experience with it. What do you guys think?
Thanks for the confirmation guys. I will do the HID kit once the Silverstar bulbs blown out. For now, I will use the halogen bulbs first. At least they are 1000% better than the factory supplied bulbs! LOL

Use your Silverstars for the fog lights. Concerning HID installation lots of room secure ballast with some industrial strength velcro. On the passenger side you need to unbolt coolant reservior ( 2 10mm bolts), then headlight is easy to get too and lots of space under reservior.

I see you got your CT at Westside. They give the first 25K servcie free and have loaner cars. Great Lexus dealer!

The F-sport looks very nice!

Sounds good. I just ordered one set from Ebay, so we'll see. I just want to match the color of the DRLs, because the factory halogen bulbs are cheap a** looking right next to the DRLs light! :p

Yes, that dealership is gret and free first 2 year service with loaners. Purchasing process was top-notch. Nothing bad to say about them at all! I enjoyed the whole process thus so far! This is my first Lexus. :)

BTW, I sent u a pvt message too.
Finally installed a set of SS ULTRA bulbs from Advanced Auto Parts store. Though it's not HID or LED quality, I think I am okay with it for now. I know I would like to have the HID but just not sure where to fit those ballasts as the space are kind of tight inside the hood. :confused:
OMG! I finally did the impossible. I had HID 6K installed this evening. Boy, it makes a lot of difference!!

Don't know what HID Kit brand this guy used (I think he sells them) but it comes with 3-year parts and installation warranty.

Well it will be a little longer before I get my Kensun HID lights installed; the order was lost in the mail.

However, I ordered through Amazon and they immediately credited me with a refund and allowed me to reorder with free one-day delivery. I like Amazon's customer service.

The new order should arrive at my Huntsville cabin on Friday, October 21.

Hey Darienlim you HIDs look great ;):cool: . I guess you Sylvania Silver stars didn't last very long :D:eek:
Sorry to hear about the lost mail. Yes you are right about HID, it does make it look better and not to mention better light output quality than the factory halogen. I still have those Silverstar ULTRA bulbs. I might swap those with the fog lights one day! :)
Very nice man. Good job!
So Midcow, do you experienced any misfire since you changed it to Kensun?
No misfire on Kensun? I just ordered a set 5000k from Amazon. I will let you guys know in a week. :)
