hi all. i am picking my lexus up on saturday and am hoping to fit some HID's to it, i was wondering if it is possible to put HID's on an is200 because the lights arent projector??

i know you have to have projector lights and headlight motors as well??

any help would be grateful

Hello and Welcome to the LOC mate :D

Think most of us have HID kits fitted now and most have never had any problems with having them on the IS,

I've got the 6000k kit on mine which looks about right, and i had the 8000k kit on before that and there slightly bluer in colour so not the best police friendly set but i never got pulled for having them :)

There are a lot of topics on fitting HID lights.

Just have a look mate.

There are kits you can buy that are just plug and play.

Most people go for the 6000k ones.

Which are a white light.

Just remember to get them set at a MOT station, and you will not have any problems

well i had an 8000k kit on my old car so was hoping to do the same with my IS. i thought they had to be projector lights though?? ive tried looking at pictures of IS200 headlights and they seem to be the jewel effect headlights? could you offer some guidance on that??

Yes, you can get HID kits which retrofit very easily onto non-projector IS200 headlamp units. I've got HIDs too. The law about these is a grey area, especially when fitting onto existing cars (as opposed to new cars, which need headlamp washers and self-levelling on the headlamps to have HIDs).

Some later IS200s/IS300s have OEM HIDs, but they don't have projector headlamps either.

Yes mate, you are supposed to have self leveling headlights when you have HID's on your car plus headlight washers, some hid lamps dont have projector units but have a shielded bulb, most of the is300's have Hid lights and the last few of the IS200's had them fitted and from what i know they dont use a projector unit, So you'll be fine fitting them to your IS200 :)
