Daytime Running Bulbs

Well, my one just burnt out and all in all, I don't really like the halogen look. They ruin the bright white output I've been getting from my low beams so.. I'm thinking of just getting some LED DRL's. That way, they give a nice appearance and I'll almost never have to change them out.

Still kind of confused on whether our DRL's are H6W size or not. If so, will any H6W LED work? Will some not fit the hole cut-out in our headlight housings? Anyone that has any LED DRL's that they'd like to give feedback on or show me?

H6W is your turn signal?

Please don't run a white turn signal, haha.

we use wedge style bulbs. think its 194 wedge bulb. i had LED white ones that lasted 5 years from ebay. they were like $10 for a pair. now i bought another set of LED buobs but in amber. they are really bright. they were $10 too. if you search on ebay for 194 LED bulb you will get a bunch of results.

Nice! I think autozone has them too but they might just be the led color changing ones

I had blue.



Got pulled over for it, ticketed 180$. worked it down to 130... Switched to white.
They still pull a slight cyan tint because of the blue coating on the bulb just above the LED. Cop can't say anything about this light color.
