Good work xnickx, does the chart only apply to Altezza and which models.

xnickx - May 17, 2006 08:37 PM (GMT)
For all Altezzas and also Lexus IS200s (only difference being the optional HID lights).

-DC- - January 13, 2008 09:06 AM (GMT)
Just found out today (after alfred from speedfactory popped by) is that the gita wagon uses a "W16W" bulb for a reverse light instead of a 7440 bulb (which I believe is also known as a T20 bulb)

So far results on google show the more common name for the "W16W" bulb as "921" :)

<edit> update: turns out they are also the "T15" bulb :) </edit>

iS_w3z - February 6, 2008 11:12 AM (GMT)
ok on lexus IS200/IS300 or altezza equipped with rear fogs the bulb is not 7443 but 7440 and for I think later model front fog lights they are H3 not HB4

lexism - April 1, 2008 11:56 PM (GMT)
Anyone know what kinda bulb the ashtray uses, its yellow and ugly and needs to be a white led!

JohnnyGT - April 2, 2008 02:46 AM (GMT)
Front ashtray 12V1.4W

Front ashtray 12V1.4W

Is that equiv to a t5 bulb? (same as glovebox)

-DC- - July 3, 2008 06:00 AM (GMT)
12V1.4W just says the voltage and the wattage of the light and not the size...... although it might be a T5?

why is this thread not stickied yet?? :o

Are these T5 bulbs for the indicator bulb inside the headlight?

-DC- - March 11, 2009 11:08 AM (GMT)
front headlight indicator bulb is T20 / 7440 i think

xnickx - March 11, 2009 07:31 PM (GMT)
Is like the same one in our stop/tail but its just single fillament, just a large capless bulb

Stephen - December 4, 2009 05:14 AM (GMT)
For the rear brake lamps, you will need T20 fitment. These are the "large" wedge bulbs.

T10 are the smaller wedge bulbs used in the indicators, front parking and number plate lamps.

T15 are larger than T10s. I believe we don't use T15s in our cars.

Hi,
Sorry, What I was meant to ask was what we use for the rear center (spoiler) tail brake light.
I unscrewed the housing from the rear spoiler tail and it looks some what like LED lights but as a long bar on a chipset.

I can't replace this with bulbs.. guess I would need a completely new tail unit?

Stephen - December 4, 2009 02:46 PM (GMT)
The individual spoiler LEDs are not meant to be replaceable - but rather as a complete unit. It is probably possible to solder in a replacement onto the circuit board.

sslc - December 14, 2009 05:27 AM (GMT)
FYI, 2002 model IS200 does have H3 bulbs for front fog lights and not HB4 as mentioned in the chart. (should probably fix this in the original message)

Stephen - December 14, 2009 10:33 AM (GMT)
Depends on the month in 2002. I believe there was a change over in the front fog lamp bulbs.

sslc - December 15, 2009 04:41 AM (GMT)
Mines late 2002 (Aug) I think. So this must have been the change over. (I went and bought HB4's and then found out they were H3's)

sslc - December 15, 2009 11:33 PM (GMT)
Hi, Sorry to be a pain, but as I'm upgrading all my front lights, I've got high, low, fogs sorted, whoever when you turn your lights to the first slot, there is a small light that comes on (in the low beam reflector area). What is this bulb? This is the only light that I have thats still a yellow-ish colour

Stephen - December 16, 2009 12:00 AM (GMT)
That's the parking lamps. They are T10 wdge bulbs. Go LED for these :)

Same type as the side indicators and rear number plate lamp.

sslc - December 16, 2009 12:36 AM (GMT)
Thanks Stephen, your a legend. Any recommendations on the LED.
The SMD's won't look good as the globe is visible. THere are other LEDs e.g:
http://cgi.ebay.com/2-X-T10-194-168-501-Wh...=item1e592ce544

What do you think of these?

Stephen - December 16, 2009 05:25 AM (GMT)
Those look like standard LEDs inside. Don't think they would be bright enough.

I'm using PIAA LEDs for the front parkers. I used generic ones before and they did not last - they started to flash when they failed ;)

sslc - December 16, 2009 10:51 PM (GMT)
I'm now thinking of the SMD 5 LED globes because they were the cheapests and give out high intensity light and give just about 360 degree light angle. (similar to a normal bulb), however they'll look ugly.

Not sure if these will be ok? or which is the best.

WOW, Those PIAA globes are expensive..

TNT200 - December 17, 2009 03:53 AM (GMT)
Just wondering if i go to buy a HID kit for Lexus IS200 end of 2002 which is H3...can i go with 8000K 35w? is it any heat damage?thanks

keep in mind with those free shipping, it will take approx 3 weeks and make sure the size of the bulbs can go through the light hole...

Hi,

Just updated my original posting. I hadn't purchased it just yet. Still looking into which is the best.

Why would you buy a kit for the fogs? Aren't they bright enough? Most of the guys are suggesting buying the kit for the low beams as you use these all the time and will give you the most benefit.

I've just purchased bulbs that give a 5000-6000K colour for the fogs.

Also the fog casing is alot smaller than the haedlights, so I would be a little worried if you went and put in real xenon lights into there.

TNT200 - December 17, 2009 05:24 AM (GMT)
Yeah SSLC...i have 55w 4700K for my front fog lights and it won't give bright enough...i've seen a lot of members using HID kit for their fogs...
could you send me a link of where do you purchase the bulbs with 5000-6000K and how many watt is it?thanks

Hi TNT200.

I spent hours finding the right globes at the right wattage at the best price.
Here is what I went this in the end:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...e=STRK:MEWNX:IT

These match the existing wattage and shine to 5000K. Anything higher then the prices start to go much higher, but if you've got the money, for the more expensive stuff :-D

If they were the only option, I would go with the 3rd one. But these did not last long in the headlamps - twice. Maybe just my bad luck. But ended going back to my original PIAAs.

Thanks SSLC for the link...have you got any pictures with the fogs and headlight turn on? if so pls post up, thanks

sslc - December 18, 2009 02:19 AM (GMT)
Hi TNT200,

Just waiting for the package to arrive. As soon as arrives I'll be taking photos.
I've ordered a slim kit for my low beams 6000K. I'll post photos in my other forum that I created about questions about the kits.

sslc - December 23, 2009 10:07 AM (GMT)
All,
Finally received my 30 LED SMD (7443 rear). plugged them in, found the brightness to be exactly the same as the standard bulb.
Also found a very noticable buzzing sounds when the lights are turned on!!
The buzz stops when brakes are fully depressed, however this is very annoying. Based on this, its probably not worth buying the more expensive SMD lights with many lights on them. (if they are not visible).

Still waiting on slim line kit for low beams and 9005 and H3 fog lights to arrive.

Stephen - December 23, 2009 11:53 AM (GMT)
You can hear the buzzing inside the car? ;) How about some photos of the LED so others know what to watch out for.

sslc - December 24, 2009 06:46 AM (GMT)
Hi guys,

Just to clarify, the buzzing sound is only when the lights are on at night and audible from outside of the car. I know some people won't care, however you would expect perfection and no surprises.

Also, unfortunately, the blown bulb light still is on!. I bought the 30 SMD bulb because I thought it would use more wattage and the car would think that it was ok, but alas, it doesn't so I'll have to buy some load balancers? (or something called that? please correct me so I can go and buy them.)

I've got 1 standard bulb on the left side and the LED on the right. I'll post some photos shortly.

ALSO, my KIT has arrived. HOWEVER THEY SENT ME THE STANDARD BALLAST!!!!! (and not slim). VERY unhappy. bought on the 4/12 and received on the 20/12. FFS, how can you get that wrong!!! the standard ballasts are heavy and large. My advise for everyone is to go for the slim.

Still waiting on the 9005 high beams and H3 low beams.

Stephen - December 24, 2009 08:43 AM (GMT)
If you ordered slim, you SHOULD get slim. I would raise a complaint.

However, the larger ballasts can easily be mounted on the strut towers (as I previously did) using factory screw holes.

sslc - December 27, 2009 02:04 AM (GMT)
Yeah,
They are resending, surprisingly the ballasts are quite heavy.
In the engine bay there are a few open screw holes. Don't know why there are so many but there are =P.

There are 2 perfect spots to place them. Will have to wait another 15 days for delivery again. ~~^_^~~~

Still waiting for H3 and 9005 bulbs.
