    Hi,

    My rear lights, they seem to have developed a leak and getting tatty. Not sure if it has 1 or 2 fog lights too as only one has ever worked!

    I really like the LED lights on the coupe's but have to keep a 4 door so thinking of the LED conversions (original look, not Lexus)

    Has anyone had this done? Any ideas on where you can get direct replacements and costs? Does the wiring harness need changing too?

    Not quite sure if it looks right on a sloon but I do like the LEDs

    if you go for proper LED's and not just the "look" of LED's you will need adaptors otherwise the OBC will throw up bulb out errors.

    Thanks - Any idea if the coupe ones fit straight on.
    They seem to be much easier to get hold of

    There's a fair few to choose from

    I may get a better price if anyone else is also interested in proper LEDs ???

    It's around the 200 mark right now with the required wiring harness

    I'm guessing these are aftermarket because saloons never came out with OEM LEDs.
