bumper led "accent" light upgrade?

I like the fact that Scion put the housing for these "accent" lights on the lower outside bumper.

But, I would like much more light output, more like a fog light, or much brighter LED's, like maybe 6in led bars, like offroad vehicles use.

Does anyone have any knowledge to do this, or if there are plug and play bulbs?

Maybe someone did HID conversions?

Im coming from a vehicle with HID's in my fogs, and I'd like to use these light housings, instead of dropping the coin for the Scion fogs, and getting bent over at the stealership

Any input would be appreciated

I'd get OEM-style fogs from eBay, and an OEM foglight switch for ~$50 for plug and play. I'd keep the DRL LED lights at they are.

Got to be careful about quality from eBay however... some of those "OEM style" foglight kits are too cheaply made.
Here's a question. How does the trd Cai work on the 13? The vent is full of lights....?
The front cheek "vents" on all stock Xbs are blocked/fake.

For the 2008-2010 models, the older model TRD CAI shipped with a functional grill that replaced the left-hand fake vent, so some cold air could actually be fed to the inlet of the CAI.

No such luck for the 2011-present models. In fact the newer model TRD CAI simply pulls air from the void behind the fender, so no new source for actual cold air.
