      They look great would be a nice addition. Still waiting for the damn HID headlights! Beetle option burns my butt

      Looks cool, after looking at how our lights work you shouldn't have to worry about white and amber being on at the time. Because the blinkers and DRLs don't stay on at the same time so if left blinker is on the left drl turns off while the right drl stays on. Hope this helps if you haven't figured that out yet. How do the LEDs look with the headlights on? Or do you still have to finish the other side?

      u have nothing to lose man.. i guess you can buy the fog housing for cheap if you mess up. the light itself cost only 39.00 usd. try it if ur bored.

      cheers!

      Can you post a link with the exact item? Are you going to wire it? Or just leave as white led drl (no blinker option)?

      http://www.xkglow.com/Dual_Mode_50_L...p/xk035005.htm

      for now... i will figure it out on how i will wire it not harming my warranty.

      there is a control module sold on ijdmtoy that doesnt need tapping for DRL, but for turn signal u still have to.

      How did you end up securing them to the car? I like the control module. Too bad the wire has to be tapped for the turn signals. Im leery on tapping my wires after dealing with a canbus system on my Jeep.

      i cut the non fog housing and fit it. At the back i put a small metal bar to secure it and then 1 screw on the top to keep it up. No adhesive

      but this is a long way. prolly if take out the backing of the lens (black color) it would be easier. cut the backing equally. re-fit the lens and the led put some silicone sealant at the back and glue it on the honey comb. secure 1 screw on top for foundation. needs a lot of sealant though.

      You know, I have an idea... I think Im going to order the fogs from bud and the control module from your link and see if I can wire the fogs to come on and use them as DRLs

      no tapping just the h7 LED connect it to the control module thats it , will work for sure. no resistor needed. thats nice, good idea. no error too.
