hey i was driving away from the mall today after christmas shopping, and out next to the curb i see an SE Legend. i was like cool! then i did a double take and saw a little something that i thought was strictly not available to the USDM Legends...

see anything different?



maybe i'm mistaken, but i was under the influence that those corner lamps were only available on some EDM and JDM Legends... guess it was available here...

Note: theres a parking ticket on this guy's windshield. :) lol

Factory cornering light option that was indeed available on USDM Legends. A guy at NOPI had them on his white 95 coupe as well. I'll find a pic.

Looks like a clean SE. Is that a note you left the owner on the front windshield?
I have not been able to find any infromation about these being a USDM option, where did you find this I would be curious to see if there any anything else really rare options it would be neat to get some infromation about them.

for when your cornering.... if that made any sense

its suppose to turn on when you switch on your turn signals.
So, one bulb on the side marker blinks...the bumper lamp blinks AND this little corner bumper lamp blinks? no thanks i would rather not give someone a seizure everytime i make a right

thats true. i had cornering lamps on my sc400. when you turn on your turn signal, the cornering lamp turns on and illuminates the corner you're turning into. its helpful, but i wired in a relay and converted my cornering lamps on the lexus into fog lights. :)

they look good on certain cars... like this silver jdm:


now that thing is sexy IMO

its just as if it were a side marker...just more in the front
its actually nothing like a sidemarker. sidemarkers blink when your turn signal on to make it more visible to people on your side that you're turning. the turning lamp illuminates the side of the road.

there is a purpose to them, thats why they are used by companies such as lexus, toyota, cadillac, lincoln, acura, and honda. I think the reason they aren't on a lot of newer cars is becuase it would indeed look awkward on most cars and styles. There are a few exceptions though. like the sc300/sc400. they look like foglights but are fully functional cornering lamps.
