      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)?

      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.

      Sweet! You going to make them DRLs? I also inquired about the parts to make the pass thru. Im sure its only trim pieces after you make the cuts in the fabric.

      YES ill make it DRL.
      BTW I RECEIVED THE CONTROL MODULE.
      UPDATE:
      I tried connecting the signal light to the front light signal, it is on at low power that means white and amber are on at the same time but when signaling they blink separately. bulb out error pops up. the only thing turn signal will work is on the side mirror, there should be no error on those coz they are LED and not ON all the time.

      I remember u did the sound system of the car and maybe you routed those speaker wires same as the mirror turnsignal.


      NOTICE THAT THE AMBER IS ON AT LOWPOWER

      the ijdmtoy control module sucks, uneven brightness, the right is bright the left is 50% less bright. returning the goods.

      i suggest never order a control module from this seller.

      That's too bad. Hopefully the return is easy. Thanks for being the guinea pig.

      I totally missed your video post from last night. Looks great! does the blinker work?

      I can't believe those blogs? They used it like it was theirs.

      they should atleast cite the one who post it or cite the website it came from. after all it is not a big deal anyways.

      So what parts do you exactly need and what needs to be done?

    31. 06-01-2012 07:39 PM #66
      I feel so out of it for some reason I never noticed this thread.

      Your car looks really and i want to copy it and I have fogs, So a couple questions:

      So the these are the exact lights you ordered?

      Do you have them working with your turn signals?

      I think this might be a mod in the future ;-)

      looks really nice.
      I have 2012 passat 2.5 SE.
      It doesnt have fog lights.

      Where did you get these parts?
      and how did you connect to the car? Do I need to buy wire harness also?
      Does it work with headlight swith?
