Re: Daytime Running Lights

Someone asked me to post a picture of what my lighting mods look like so here it is. I replaced the incandescent parking light bulbs that reside next to the LED headlights with 5K LEDs, added the 5K LED DRLs under the lip and wired to be on whenever the car is on, and replaced the fog light bulbs with 2K amber units since that is better for fog, I liked the look, and I didn't need them to be 5K after I added the dedicated DRLs...

They were $7.99 for a set of two and I got two sets. One for the front parking lights and one for the license plates lights.

It's a regular item for them so I'm sure they'll be back in stock soon.

I'm near Knollwood, where were you?

Also very near Knollwood - Zola Street, most of the way up Jolette.

Did you choose that LED light for the size of the assembly, or because of the direction(s) the LEDs point?

Neat, I'm off of Westbury...

I bought them for their color temperature, light dispersion, and size.
