Re: HID in DRL (B.G.)

I have the silverstars in the DRL and its quite bright. I would love to see a LED DRL mod (in the bulb socket not eye brows). If there is anyone to pull that off it would be AthruC <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Hey, I was going to make a thread like this but replace HID with LED. I'm assuming that can be done too?

Unless you mean LED's for the main HID lights, then you'll have to do something REALLY custom. Only a couple of cars in the market with LED main lights, the R8 V10 being one of them and I think a high-end Escalade.

Re: (PhilUp)

Here in the US, we have the option of having them shut off. The car comes with the DRLs and the parkings lights turned on. You have two options: (1) have the parking lights shut off and the DRLs remain ON via the light sensor or (2) have both the parking lights and the DRLs shut off at all times. Or something like that.
