1996 Lexus ES 300: A Clean Well Lighted Car

November 17, 2012

ES300 Headlights.jpg

With the shorter days and the rainy weather, we've been feeling in the dark with our 1996 Lexus ES 300. Michael Jordan diagnosed the condition as "cataracts"  and got a lot of great comments about bulbs vs. cleaning the lens. We're going to do both. But we decided to pop for some new headlight bulbs. These X-treme Power bulbs from Philips come highly recommended by readers and other users on Amazon.com where we ordered them for $28. If they really are 80 percent brighter, maybe we won't have to scrub the lens.

We will report back after we install them.
