Fabulous announces Lexus LS430 LED tail lights

Fabulous finally got around to releasing a “red and clear” LED tail light kit today for the early model Celsior 30 (aka 2001-2004 Lexus LS430). All I know is that the lights cost about $400 from Fabulous japan webstore. The only real pic I could find was of the lights themselves, nothing actually on the car:

Great news for UCF30 owners, but where’s the UCF20 Kouki LED tails?!

Good god that thing looks awesome. You’re staring at a Toyota Crown, sporting Absorber aero. They also make kits for the GS, LS430 and a few other Toyota/Lexus rides… But no love for the UCF20!

UCF20 LS400 Bulb part numbers

I’m on a mission to replace all/most-of the halogen bulbs on my LS400 with LED bulbs. The first part of the quest is to identify the halogen bulb part numbers, to be able to look up replacement LED bulbs. I found the following list on Sylvania.com (click products->automotive products->replacement guide), figured this might be helpful for other UCF20 owners looking to do LED retrofits.

B-Spark UCF30 – VIP Celsior LS430

Wow I am in love with this car. Look how low it is! The overall style is fresh and represents a more modern VIP/Sport style in my opinion. The Aero is made by japanese company, B-Spark. As far as I know their products are not available in America yet — get on the phone with your distributor/wholesaler buddy and figure out how you can be the first to import and sport B-Spark aero in USA!

Currently it appears that B-Spark only manufactures two kits – one for the UCF30 (LS430) and one for the JZS16 (Gs430).  Here’s a shot of the GS/Aristo kit:

I would love to see what they could do for the classic UCF20!
