Nice to see someone else with an affinity for lighting mods! I've been looking forward to seeing the results of your "boosted" halo DRLs.
Great job with the lighting!!!! I have been wanting to add the foot well lighting and console light since I got the car, but I am just too damn lazy to do it.
:thanks:Thanks for the compliment guys. Yeah I love adding lighting to my cars. You won't see me adding a CAI or a new exhaust, partly because I have an i4, but lots of lighting upgrades.

I'm hoping to add projectors (retrofit) into the fogs and put HIDs in there and give it an extreme white onto the ground in front of me. It will be useless for fog, but I live in Southern California, we have fog maybe 3 days out of the year, so it'll just be for aesthetics

I just remembered I am getting illuminated door sills ( ebay, not OEM)
Hopefully those arrive this week.

I am almost in the midst of summer school and moving right now so probably no updates for the next week and a half =(

My SE is very similiar to yours. The typical light mods and tints. Waiting to do my Backup camera. There just isn't enough info for me to do it yet, especially with my lack of knowledge.

I have 4300k hids in the headlights, and 2500k fogs. I like the look. 35% all around tint, mass legal. Interior LEDs and license plate as well.

Lemme know how your backup cam goes. I just can't piece the amount of info on the thread together to actually do it yet.

And the door sills. I'm curious to that as well.

41 Posts got your for under 22k? I had bought mine for 26k. Is Cali much cheaper?

Also i like how your hid look, looks aggressive at night!

Can you post pics of the debadged? Im thinking of doing it as well.

you replaced your high beam/drl & fog lights with the same bulb?

how come they look different? your fog lights have a purple tint. while your high beams don't have the purple tint.
I think you're looking at my low beams, those were 6000K HIds

8/9 LED back up reverse lights.

I got my HID 4300K on my 2012 Camry SE but when I driving at night people keep flashing at me ...I did not cover the squirre spotter yet. So few days later I took them off the car and put the stock yellowish bulbs back on. I missed the HID light really ..I meant it.
