    Lexus LX470 Halogen Projector Lens Swap

    Swapped this LX470 projector lens (TSX-R) and added a HID kit. The results were amazing. I thought you guys would get a kick out of this since I was blown away at the results. I new it was going to be good, but not that good! Elaborate write up and more text in the link.

    That's awesome man, pretty nice output for a halogen projector. Probably the best I've seen out of any halogen projector + clear lens swap setup. Props.

    Thanks! I'll have a few LX/Landcruiser headlights coming in for some modding and R&D. I want to try to stuff the FXR 3.0 into mine. I'll keep this thread updated on lens swaps on LX470's. Pictures don't do justice on how nice the cutoff looks.

    yeah, those OEM LX halogen projectors were really impressive. Wish you got better output shots Nick, they're literally almost an S2K even with just an H1 HID bulb in there

    I plan on getting with the owner soon and getting some real output shots. I really want to put a bi-xenon in the high beam spot and see what happens then. That would be cool

    Nice. Definately get some night shots. I'd like to see what its intensity and width are really like. Those day shots make it a bit difficult to see.

    You should try swapping the bowl with one from an RX330

    We were thinking about a Landcruiser, but seeing this just bumped the LX to the top of the list.
