Its been 2 months since i replaced my flickering HID lights with OSRAM D4S ones and now the driver side is flickering again and cuts off after 5 seconds. Don't really want to be buying another set. There must be a fix for this. Anyone had this issue before, or found a fix. Would appreciate any feedback.
First and foremost I am new to this forum. I bought a 2010 Lexus IS 220d F Sport from the UK and imported it to my country. I bought the 220d F Sport and not the 200d F Sport for three main reasons:
1) More power
2) Mark Levinson sound system
3) Seats with memory function
However, doing this meant that my car would have no day time running lights as standard. This is something that I still really want.
Does anyone now if it is possible to convert from a 2010 OEM to a 2011 OEM headlamp? Will it be an easy swap? And will the DRL work just as a plug and play or will I have to take it to a centre to get it programmed? From the satellite switches i have no access to DRL function, and this is where i assume it should be to switch them on or off.
I have contacted the Lexus Official Store on eBay and their reply was:
"If the customer is looking to fit a different headlamp from a different spec of vehicle we would not be able to advise regarding if it would fit the vehicle as the wiring may well be different/has not been tested so we cannot sanction changing the original spec. I can also confirm that there are no accessory DRL/s available."
Before I got this message they however have recommended part number 81140-53351.
In my opinion, 8113053250 looks like it has DRL function at the bottom of the headlamp unit, and is also much cheaper.
Attached find the two car models i am referring to, and see the difference in headlamps. IMO the DRL function looks amazing.
I tried to keep the post the shortest length possible. Any sort of information and help would be very much appreciated.
Peace be with you guys. Have a good day.
Just bough myself main beam Osram Xenarc Cool Blue Intense D4S for £41 (standards price ~ £80). Sadly, was limited deal on amazon I believe 2 items left, but the time I bough and none by the time I finished making the post.
Can anyone advice on High Beam?
I know there is part thread just above, but it seems nobody has any recommendations for high beam?
I've searched but can't seem to find any information regarding HID kits on their cars so thought I'd ask.
Has anybody done a HID upgrade on their car? If so, which kit did you buy?
With my CT200h I'm looking for a kit that will work with the auto-light feature (H11 bulb). I had a cheep ebay kit on my Honda Accord and it worked faultlessly. Hoping somebody can point me in the right direction of a reasonably priced kit that is tried and tested.
(please no "HID kits are illegal" etc).
Many thanks, Ben
