Lexus CT200h 50W CREE H11 LED Fog Light Replacement

Ever since the release of our 50W CREE high power LED replacement bulbs, they have been used on a variety of cars that are looking for the most light output from an LED bulb. The extra components that have to be installed when getting HID or LED conversion kits makes them less desirable to some so they turn to replacement LED bulbs instead. These types of lights are not as bright as the conversion kits, but they still do a great job of producing an enormous amount of light from the bulb. This 50W CREE H11 LED bulb is the answer for this situation.

Each H11 CREE LED fog light bulb has ten individual LED diodes made by CREE; the chips used are the R4 XP-E series which are one of the brightest in the market today. There are eight on the side and two on the top underneath a magnifying optical lens projector which produces a lot of projection for visibility. The lights operate at 10W for a bright, yet reliable output capacity; these are rated to work up to 50W, but there will be heat issues associated with that. The unique design of the lights allow the light to project the light as well as provide a 360 degree output of shine which fills up the light housing very well.

Because these LED bulbs operate at 10W, they are ideal for usage as fog lights and daytime running lights. They are bright enough to be seen by other motorists, but not to the point where they can be used as primary driving lights. These particular 50W CREE H11 LED bulbs on this 2012 Lexus CT200H required no additional components for using it inside the fog lights, but using them inside daytime running lights may require decoders/resistors. European vehicles will also need the same type of resistor/decoder setup as well due to the error message system in place.

2013 Las Vegas SEMA Auto Show Coverage

Every year, thousands of consumers, automotive industry retailers, and enthusiasts gather at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show. Companies from all over the world gather in Las Vegas for one memorable week which showcases the industry’s newest products, car builds, and more! We were not able to visit this year, but we’ve compiled a preview of what is at the show this year. The pictures in this coverage are sourced from various online sites such as Stancenation, Speedhunters, Autospies, Europeancarweb, and Mercurynews. SEMA draws all types of cars to the show; there are traditional muscle cars and hat rods, completely customized road vehicles, a modified FedEx delivery truck, full race cars, exotic cars and more so there is nearly an endless list of mechanical eye candy to stare at.

First, let us take a look at one of the most popular car of choice for builds this year; the Scion FR-S. Thanks to the large support from the aftermarket industry for this car, it is no doubt that this is a popular platform to build for enthusiasts. There are plenty of FR-S’s at the SEMA show this year.

Examples like the SpeedElement Scion FR-S from San Jose sporting the classic Rocket Bunny body kit, a unique duck bill rear lip and some aggressive MTechnica 2 piece wheels.

Aggressive wheels, body kit, and wing seem to be the trending style among the Scion FR-S and Subaru BR-Z crowd.

2013 Las Vegas SEMA Auto Show 3

The Rocket Bunny kit has been quite popular with the FR-S and BR-Z crowd and since they practically the same vehicle, you see the kit on both cars. This blue Vortech Supercharged Subaru BR-Z has on the Rocket Bunny version two kit which was just released not too long ago.

2013 Las Vegas SEMA Auto Show 4

It’s almost rare to see a FR-S or BR-Z without a Rocket Bunny kit these days so it’s a breath of fresh air to see something more different. Check out those fog light housings! We have some similar setups for the stock body vehicle as well.

However, I digress, the Rocket Bunny version two comes with LED daytime running lights arranged in a row which is quite unique. They go very well with the more aggressive styling of the newer kit.

Did we mention there are some pretty cool engine swaps as well at SEMA? The same FR-S above is rocking a single turbo 2JZ-GTE motor from a Toyota Supra instead of the traditional 4 cylinder 4U-GSE that came from the factory.

More 2JZ swaps? Sure why not; this time it’s on the newer 2014 Lexus IS350 Sport. The new Lexus IS models are also quite popular this year as well as the other newer models to hit showroom floors from all the manufacturers.

This VIP Auto Salon and Robert Evans collaboration of the 2014 Lexus IS350 F Sport is quite a looker, aggressive lines and a loud wheel color choice go very well together.

2013 Las Vegas SEMA Auto Show 10

And of course, we have the not-so-aggressive builds such as this A’pexi Lexus IS. Subtle changes to the exterior go a long way.

There is also the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray on display! The lines are more sharp and straight rather than contoured like the previous models, but it’s definitely not bad looking.

Since SEMA draws a whole variety of builds, it’s not surprising to see fully built race cars sitting at various vendor booths around the convention center. The Evasive Motorsports Scion FR-S is definitely no slouch and is competing in the Global Time Attack/Super Lap Battle event later this month at Buttonwillow Raceway in Southern California.

2013 Las Vegas SEMA Auto Show 15

The aerodynamics on race cars may seem strange and ugly to some, but function over form is preferred by these race teams. The FX Motorsports Acura NSX is a great example of this and is also competing in the Global Time Attack/Super Lap Battle.

Other vehicles like this Nissan GT-R from R-Rydes is sporting a set of LED lights in the front bumper; these seem like daytime running lights to us.

This is just a small sample of all the vehicles and things you would see at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, NV this year. We recommend to check out the websites that these pictures are from for a full and more detailed coverage.

Stay tuned for part 2 of the coverage which should be uploaded tomorrow.

Lexus GS350 with JDM Golden Yellow 9005 LED Daytime Lights

The factory daytime running light on most vehicles is a standard incandescent halogen bulb which produces a dull yellow color. For most people, they would like to get rid of this light and replace it with a whiter bulb so it matches with their other aftermarket lights such as the parking lights or headlights. However, some may opt to run a deeper and richer color yellow bulb such as these LED 9005 bulbs mimicking the early 2000s style of “JDM yellow”. Thankfully, we have a solution for both the white and yellow colors.

Lexus GS350 Golden Yellow 9005 LED DRL Bulbs 1

The Lexus GS350 of this generation requires LED canbus decoders to be installed along with the JDM Yellow 9005 LED bulbs to prevent issues such as flickering and error messages. This is included automatically when purchased as our DRL kit. Each DRL kit comes with two 68-SMD 9005 LED high beam daytime lights which are available in either Yellow, Blue, or White; in this article we are showing the Yellow color. The golden yellow color that these bulbs have is perfect for the automotive enthusiast who wants a deeper and richer color version of their factory bulbs and also a bit brighter during DRL mode. However, like all our LED DRL replacement bulbs, the high beam output is greatly reduced so it is recommended for DRL usage only.

50W 9005 CREE LED Daytime Running Light Bulbs on Lexus ES350

The 2007 and up Lexus ES350 uses 9005 sized bulbs for the daytime running lights and it is quite obvious to see the benefits to upgrade to LED lights. The factory incandescent halogen bulbs provide a dull, yellow color that is nothing special or noticeable. The 9005 LED bulbs that this ES350 has installed turn that around by providing a more crisp and stylish HID-like color that is sure to draw attention driving down the road.

9005 LED DRL 1

These LED bulbs use ten 5W high power CREE Q5 XP-E LED diodes per bulb and all operate together for a combined output of 10W. Since there are eight CREE LED diodes on the side, it provides the 360 degree shine to fill up the housing while the two on the top project light outwards thanks to the magnifying optical lens. The lights are also rated at 6000K so they are our classic Xenon White color so it would go great with our other Xenon White lights. Keep in mind that even though these high output bulbs are very bright, they are not intended to be used for high beam lights at night. Your high beams will still operate, but they will not provide you the same amount of light output as they once did; these are more for aesthetic purposes only.

These lights would not work by themselves so they require our Lexus R4 setup which includes a pair of canbus decoders to prevent issues such as flickering and error messages. Using the 9005 CREE LED high beam and daytime running light bulbs by themselves may cause issues such as partial light up, flickering, and errors. The setup is completely plug and play so it requires no modification of the wiring and is very easy to install, but make sure you follow the instruction guide that comes with the kit so you install it properly.

LED Daytime Running Lights on a 2012 and up BMW F30 335i

The latest generation of the BMW 3-series is known as the F30 chassis and includes all 3-series vehicles starting from 2012 and up. The non-factory HID headlights utilize a small bulb for the daytime running lights which is the PW24W bulb size; this small bulb is an incandescent halogen bulb so it produces the typical pale yellow glow. Being a BMW, it certainly feels awkward to have such a luxurious vehicle with incandescent halogen bulbs that do not match the sophistication of the car. Fortunately, we have an error free replacement LED bulb for this light.

Our PW24W LED DRL bulbs are 100% plug and play so it requires no modification. It fits into the factory socket assembly just like stock and can be done with a few minutes of your time. Each bulb contains 18-SMD 5050 LED diodes and produces a 6000K Xenon White glow. This attractive color is the same color as our other Xenon White LED bulbs and is sure to turn heads wherever you drive.

The F30 BMW LED daytime lights, like every other European car is configured using a can-bus system so it will detect if the bulb is not properly working. Since LED bulbs draw far less power than the factory bulbs, this is an issue. Our PW24W LED bulbs are can-bus error free so they will function and light up without any distracting and annoying error messages on the dash. These all new non-polar design also makes installation much easier as you do not have to figure out which side is positive; instead you simply just plug it in and you are ready to go.
