Can't stop modding now!!! I've caught the bug from you lot!

Got blue leds from the states...was really easy to fit..

The door lights are my favourite...

I used some wedge with 12 leds in the rear lights, I think they are a bit strong though!!!

Changed the footwells to blue, as shown by my trainers!

Ignition barrel from green to blue

Front dome light is very nice too

Did the boot light, it is more pure white, but not that wide an angle

Changed the reverse lights to 12 led super white, much nicer than the yellow looking standard ones

The overall effect is nice, especially when you get in at night and don't put the key in the ignition and the lights slowly dim...

Now I can put my feet up and watch the footie on Sunday!

are the lights hard to change etc? looks a smart mod which maybe in my tiny budget...lol

20 minutes to do the whole lot. I bought from www.superbrightleds.com, but I got them mailed out to the States whilst I was on holiday there, so saved a few bob. I think it worked out around 25-30 quid for the lot. :lol:

DO NOT BUY THESE....... There are alot of threads on here from guys that have bought the ones off ebay and have been very dissapointed with them as they are a load of crap. If you're going to change them, then go for the ones that Maneesh has fitted as they look pretty cool and are certainly bright. The ebay ones are not.

hey maneesh how did you do the ignition barrell? looks nice...

mate,

thanks. the photos don't do the setup any justice..i still do a double take when I get in at night!

it's dead simple. on the gs, you just pull the housing (pulling from the bottom) that covers the barrel (it might feel like you are breaking the dash, but the clips holding it behind are quite tough). one screw to be removed gives you access to the barrel, and the existing bulb is clear with a green cover (i guess you could just find a new coloured cover for it), but I just put a single blue led in.

I might as well do a write up with pics, so folks can see how easy it is..I wanna do the ac panel and radio next..

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
