Nice additions!
I have a query on that ambiance lighting - is it linked with the car lamp and glows when the doors are opened or is it a static glow??

Nice minor upgrade to fortuner.
the car is already doing so much well and these small feature will make it grab more attraction. what actually is the purpose of rear light? Just for show I believe. Do you have any pic taken in dark?

The ambiance lighting is linked to the opening and closing of the doors!

Nice LEDs ! How much do they cost a pair? Are they OE?

The current Fortuner tail lamps look quite dated.

The rear LEDs are simply outstanding. They take the FORTUNER a few notches higher (if that was ever possible) on the looks front.

The lights at leg level is good for searching stuff at night. Happy to see them adding stuff without any version launches or so.

Luminated door sills are normally sold as accessories right?

Good Stuff, good quality and execution. The LED tail lamps are the most welcome touch followed by the Ambience Lighting. But did you buy a Fortuner or did you see all this at a showroom?

Not sure if you folks already know, but I heard it only yesterday from the Toyota dealer. Toyota is not taking any more bookings for Fortuner and the waiting period is 1 year !

Parm : could you please clarify ? I think you are talking about the Fortuner in Dubai and not in India. As far as I know Toyota India is not offering any of these additions. They are struggling to match the demand, forget adding new stuff on the car

Also, the upholstery looks fabric. Only leather is offered in India.

Great stuff Paaji!

All of the stuff you have shown is available at the dealerships in India EXECPT the LED taillights which are the best of the lot!!

When i had taken delivery of my Fortuner these were what i really wanted to upgrade and was wondering if they even existed.

Here are the prices in INR of the stuff available here:

1. Leg Room Lamps (SET Of 4)...Rs.9092/- + Rs.409 (Insurance Premium)
2. Illuminated Scuff Plate..Rs.8404/- + Rs.378 (Insurance Premium)

Please let us know how much a set of LED Tail Lamps cost in Dubai.

Cheers!
