Default Daytime running lights- your thoughts...

I personally hate daytime running lamps but I love the new Look of the Audi's. I know I can't have the same look but looking for insight on what you think about l.e.d runnnig lights on a mkIV. Maybe best to use? How to install? Or just not to bother @ all.

haha you stole my picture. but ya Im in love with them too. I might be buying a new A4 later this summer and would use my Jetta as a backup car. In was thinking of doing something similar to this

Audi S6 LED install for Volkswagen MkV R32 - Derek Punsalan - 5ThirtyOne

except I was going to buy some ecodes and take them apart and put them inside there. Also I was going to search for some smaller LEDs.

eh I kinda agree with that, I mean when I get my new A4, I dont want to pull up to a stop light and have some ricer have matching lights :P

But I do think it would be cool to experiment with them and maybe do something creative with the leds, I dont think you should copy the style or design of the Audi LEDs, but I would like to incorporate them into my headlights, especially as drl's. In oregon its legal to have white turn signals and i think itd be cool to somehow stick in a high power LED as the turnsignal/drl?

What do you think about this? I like the small LED's but not noticable enough for me
