Looks nice can never have enough light on these DRL's, how do they compare to your low beams still a huge difference? You should do a night pic with the high beams and lows both on to see how it looks I used to do this on my LX 470 with the "quad light" set up. Since the high beams/DRL's are LED's they wont blind anyone.

Thx for the co-sign man. Okay here are 2 vids showing light output and believe it or not they are a tad more brighter than what's in the vid. Sorry using an iPhone 5 no pro equipment but I hope you get the idea.

Thanks Tee for the instructions on these DRL replacements. I'm so happy to finally rid my car of those dingy/dated OEM bulbs. I couldn't stop looking at the reflection on the bumpers in front me! Here are some pics I took, but they look much brighter and much more modern in person.

If you ordered the decoders from the ebay seller posted by Tee, make sure you get the ones with the metal housing instead of the plastic housing. The plastic housing is too big for the DRL space. Also make sure it's for the 9005 bulb instead of the 9006. I had some issues at first but the seller was very quick to correct them.

No problem, I'm glad you are pleased with the outcome. The pics & vids really don't do how bright they any justice in the write up, but now that you have set you see that. Thanks for the feedback and pics enjoy!👍

Yups ordered the gold metal ones. I had the plastic ones on my 3gs drls and they were a pain to fit.

If they sent you the metal module like in the pic & link then yes it will fit, you just have play around with until it goes in.
