Coming into my third year volunteering for Anime Expo, I had just recently discovered the world of itasha, anime-wrapped JDM cars (with few exceptions) featuring the driver’s favorite character, waifu, or anime series. As a paid employee of iJDMTOY, I had to make at least one visit of the car section in the entertainment hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center. So equipped with a more adequate camera, I started snapping away with the office DSLR.
Last month, I wrote a blurb touting my admiration for the Lexus IS series as well as its upgradability when it comes to LED lighting. Coming from a Toyota background (my parents have been driving Toyotas for many years and has passed down their RAV4 to me), my adoration for the Lexus IS 250 comes from brand loyalty, the luxury vehicle’s sleek design, and the thought that I can see myself driving a Lexus well into my adulthood. And though I don’t really see myself adding aftermarket parts to it if I do come to own an IS 250, I can’t ignore its upgradability when it comes to JDM style LED fog lights. I discovered some pictures of the JDM style LED fog lights on a Lexus IS 350 that was featured in AutoCon 2016.
While I can’t imagine adding aftermarket parts to what to me is the perfect car to have, its hard to ignore the upgradability of the Lexus IS. Besides a new set of rims, one part that can be easily upgraded is its set of fog lights. Fog lights add to the lighting capabilities of the Lexus’s head lights and daytime running lights. And even though the stock fog lights are decent enough as it is, wouldn’t it be nice to change its color? With the JDM style 15W high powered LED fog lamps, you can.
Aftermarket car lighting technology is becoming more and more advanced, giving drivers plenty of options on how they can upgrade their car. This is a set of Toyota LED daytime running lights/fog lamps has a special 3-in-1 design that includes LED daytime running lights, low beam fog/driving lights, and high beam/fog driving lights. The LED DRL/fog lamps even come with a sensor that automatically triggers a toggle between the daytime running light function and the fog light high beam when you drive through a dimly lit area, like a tunnel.
The Lexus RCF is probably one of the hottest cars on the road right now, with tons of people trying to get their hands on one of these coveted cars. We were lucky enough to have ba2sy from Club Lexus stop by our storefront with his Infrared RCF and he was willing to model the RCF racing tow hook strap on his car. The tow hook racing strap is a great addition for the RCF and definitely helps to elevate the entire look of the car. The racing tow strap is super versatile so it’s great as a decorative piece for daily driving and as a utility piece for those days you take the car onto the track.
