ok, got my lexus lights today, and noticed that the plastic that houses it (not the perspex bit) is grey on the inside but along the top its a yukky yellow colour which gives the whole light a yellow border where it shows through the clear perspex. kinda hard to explain, but looks like its either gone funny in the sun or someones been smoking next to them for about a month!!!

i'm not impressed... anyone else have close up pics of what their lights are like and also anyone know how to wire up the bigger red bulb for sidelights and brake light?? theres 2 extra green wires whcih i have no idea where to put them!!

hey dan... got a close up pic for ya, i know what youre talkin about. different lexus lights often come with different coloured housing plastic. i've seen some with greyish colour and some with this dirty white/yellow colour. not much you can do about it i think unless u get it sprayed.

heres a pic of mine:

isnt that the sealing thingy, mine is grey, oh and get some silver indicator bulbs, they are 30 quid RRP, gonna get some for myself, they look better than silvertec and only 20 quid

so the lamps are in but they are not wired up? will look at mine soon, you will need to connect all the earths together, then whire up each bulb to the main wires, also you might neeed 2 extra wires going to each lamp if you are having 2 fogs and 2 reverse lights

PS nice house

...theres 2 extra green wires whcih i have no idea where to put them!!

The two extra wires on each cluster, both should be green, but one will have a white stripe down it. I had some scotchlocks provided with mine to splice the wires onto their same-coloured counterparts on the original wiring loom, doubling up the brake lights. Replace the brake bulb that comes with the new clusters with a better quality one while you are at it, they are inferior & blow too soon, and you also might find the supplied indicator bulbs don't fit!

Don't know if you got all of that lot with yours like I did (including instructions in japanese - useful!), but I got mine early when everyone wanted silly money for them :arrgg-matey: !

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
