Is Rear Indicator Bulbs - Silver Tipped Or Not Silver Tipped That Is T


Recommended Posts


just want to get a verdict if people go for silver tipped bulbs so that the lens doesnt have the fried egg look or normal orange bulbs?

Are the silver tipped ones as good as they claim to be.

I need to hear from you guys who have experience of these bulbs.

furthermore, are the lexus rear indicator 581 offset pins or straight pins - there are two types...see this: =581%20bulb%20straight%20pins&filters[primary]=images"][term]=581%20bulb%20straight%20pins&filters[primary]=images and ?

Im confused! Does anyone have any idea which one fits? I have an IS300 2002 year model.

I don't have a screwdriver as I'm away from home. Help!

Many thanks for the view and pictures jomo, really appreciate it... I think I will get me some of these now... don't happen to know the type of bulb or a link to eBay to get them do you? Also like the chrome exhaust tip, you have a standard lexus exhaust, cos I wouldnt mind getting one of those either. I have seen them on eBay but don't have confidence in the advertisements as they look a different shape, but state is200... so :S

Your welcome Andy, i bought those from Lidl of all places about 4 years ago lol, but there the same as the eBay ones.

Those should be the same as mine, they look more silver than mine do but the silver does fade with use over time.

Yes that's the standard Lexus zorst, but i believe that it was an optional extra, their really hard to get a hold of now, and the ones on eBay are not gen lexus parts but cheap copies, so watch out.

I have leds all round now, bar from brake lights as i cant seem to find a set that look alot brighter when you have the lights on and then hit the brakes!

The ind i have in the back look like these,


But you cant just chuck leds in the indicators with out changing the indicator relay for an LED one!
