Question DRL "nike" sign on headlights to led?

I just saw another Lexus gs 350 and his DRL inside his headlights were bright blue seems to be LED. Mine are not bright blue. I think them being bright blue looks awesome. Is there a way to swap out the bulbs to LED inside the headlight?

I wouldn't recommend it. It is illegal in many states to install blue or red in the front since it is commonly used for police.

Our "nike" sign is already LED. Possibly he had the LED chips exchanged to a color changing version. In my opinion, I feel a brighter white light would be a great look. Possiby removing the dividers so the lights don't look individual.

+1 for removing the dividers in the DRL LED. It would make the LED flow better.
Also would like to know if there is a way to re-wire the DRL so that it stays at 100% brightness when the headlights are on also. Currently, the default is the DRL dims to 50% brightness when headlights are on.

I believe the DRL dims because at 100% it would blind other drivers when added to the headlights. I saw some others speaking of this but don't remember where.
