Sure it's the lights that are the problem?

I think the problem isn't the DRL, I need a whiter headlight to compensate. Looks downright orange at night.

You could always get some nice, 6000k switchback LED turn signals. That'll tie things together nicely, and let the headlights be their own independent color. Mine are all different colors right now because I don't want to have to jack my car up to do my turn signals.

I just ordered these because I love the look of them. I have a morimoto HID kit but I have yet to buy the bulbs for it. After reading a few of your comments you are saying that these are like 5500K-6000K? I kind of want to match them. Or should I try to match them by changing my stock DRL's on the head lights? Hmm.......decisions decisions

Fun update: one of my LED strips burned out after ~a year or so of regular use. That was maybe 18,000 miles or so? I can't recall off the top of my head, but the strip had been dead for a while. Called up iJDMTOY and explained the story, and the best they could offer was 15% off another set. Warranty is only 90 days, apparently, and they don't sell any of the components individually. I'd happily buy just the LED strip and replace that, but, that wasn't an option. Be aware when you buy these or any of the chinese knockoffs that you may not get the product support you need.

I havenít installed my eBay ones yet. They were 50 bucks shipped. I tested them and they light up super bright. Just have to see how long they go for. Iím not expecting much from them.

I might have them just turn on with the parking lights.

Sorry to hear.

This was the exact reason I took mine off and put the plain OE fogs/trim back in. Chinese LEDs are great...until they stop working. If the LED is part of some sort of assembly, then that whole piece is junk. No thanks.
