Haloruler64’s 2017 Lexus CT200h F Sport daily not build

I picked up a new daily! A 2017 Lexus CT200h F Sport with premium package.

Since it's meant to be a comfortable and quiet daily, it's getting the minimum of mods. Unfortunately, despite being specced out, it's still the lowest end car that Lexus sells. Hence it got a big dose of incandescent. First step was to replace the map lights with Philips Vision 194s.

Better matches the blue footwell lighting and lighted door sills.

I also installed a single (for now) Philips Vision 921 LED into the reverse light.

Causes a little glare on the backup camera, and the beam pattern on the floor might be worse. I have to do some more investigating when things aren't covered in condensation.

Next are two Vision 194s for the puddle lights, a Vision festoon for the dome light, a festoon for the trunk light, and maybe some amber turn signal LEDs if I feel like it. Then maybe some upgraded F Sport lowering springs.

Actual mod updates are going to be rare, but I'll post interesting stuff once in a while.
