Moderator, in case it was done by someone else feel free to delete this.<br>In case it was not here it is..............<br>I always hated those ugly yellow corner light but was too cheap to buy the European headlights ($3000). The corner bulb may be modified to work as turning light only. For that get the light bulb socket and press on the right connector. See the pics:<br> <IMG SRC="http://i423.photobucket.com/albums/pp316/Deniss60r/socketbefore.jpg?t=1258731300" BORDER="0"> <br>Should look like this:<br> <IMG SRC="http://i423.photobucket.com/albums/pp316/Deniss60r/socketafter.jpg?t=1258731348" BORDER="0"> <br>Or if you desire you may tap into that wire/connector to power something else. <br>Now take the bulb and replace it with clear style. Or in order to qualify as a "free mod" remove that cheap yellow paint taht covers the bulb with sanding paper. <br>Look at the difference:<br> <IMG SRC="http://i423.photobucket.com/albums/pp316/Deniss60r/yellowwhite.jpg?t=1258731510" BORDER="0"> <br>Put everything back and be careful with those light sockets ( I broke one of them during removal/installation and part of it fell into the light assembly. I enjoyed myself for several hours removing the entire light assembly. )<br>Now here is the result:<br> <IMG SRC="http://i423.photobucket.com/albums/pp316/Deniss60r/hid.jpg?t=1258731737" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG SRC="http://i423.photobucket.com/albums/pp316/Deniss60r/hidfog.jpg?t=1258731788" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG SRC="http://i423.photobucket.com/albums/pp316/Deniss60r/fog.jpg?t=1258731829" BORDER="0"> <p>Emergency lights on:<br> <br> <IMG SRC="http://i423.photobucket.com/albums/pp316/Deniss60r/emergen.jpg?t=1258731861" BORDER="0"> <p>No warning lights or messages should appear as a result. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: DRL free mod (Denis)

Ha, nice going. I like it but I dont like the fact that they corner lights are not on when the headlights are in the ON position. The headlights won't look "full" when fully lit<br>I did something similar here:<br><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=120066" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=120066</A><p>I wish someone could come up with a mod which gets rid of DRL all together!<p>Also, does anyone know how to prevent one's headlights from automatically turning on when in 0 position? <br>This morning, my headlights were on (not DRL - headlights!) and the sun was already out. I hate the fact that I cant control it - why the F do we have a headlight switch anyhow?!
