Default 5K WHITE Vleds DRL LIGHT BULBS 9005

Selling a pair 5k white led 9005 bulbs made by vleds. These can be used as drl. Great if you wanna get rid of the ugly amber color stock drl. They are super bright. Had for 4 months. Upgraded my headlights no longer need. New style CREE leds. Retail for $60 on the vleds website. I am asking for SOLD
Note: The drl and high beams is the same bulb so your high beams will not be as bright, but they are still bright so if you live in a place or if you rarely use your high beams you wouldn't have any problems with these.

Not as they should, this give out 850lm which is plenty to light up bright but not enough for high beams which are usually 1200lm

Wait, so our DRL are also the high beams? I thought the ISs had bi-xenon headlights?

Yes sir you are correct, when used as DRLs the output is very subtle and then they turn off when you use your headlights and thats when they become your highbeams

I don't think they are bi-xenon. For sure the DRLs are the high beam bulb. You will lose high beam functionality.

The IS has bi-xenon projectors. When the DRLs are functioning as DRLs, they are operating at something like 50-75%. When you hit the highbeams, the DRLs output at 100%, and if your lowbeams are on, the cutoff shield will shift to throw more light on the ground. You can see it if you park your car against a wall with your lights on (at night, obviously) and hit the highbeams.
