    Parking/DRL lights

    Anyone know of a parking light/ drl bulb that will more closely match the factory HID appearance? Also what is actual bulb number? Book says its a 5 w, I know there are alot of bulbs (194 pretty much) that are the same that will fit into that but I wanted to make sure I had it right. I'm hoping to get an led bulb or something to put in that will match the HID.

    I am actually looking into this. I will get back to you if I find anything out.

    The factory color for the HIDs is 5K btw

    5K, that helps. I'm sure we can track something down that works. I know ddm tuning is good for led bulbs. Can prob find a nice led bulb that will go in there

    I actually think this one will go in there and the white will prob be a close match

    194 is your standard T10 connector isnt it? As long as you find a T10 connector that fits and a LED with a bin that is white and not blue it could match. I always find LEDs to be 6000K+ no matter what it sais on the package.

    Yeah, good thing about those is they are cheap enough to buy a few different ones and plug and play for a match

    I actually think the amber could just be taken out. Going to have to find someone to clear them or wait for aftermarket company to provide clear ones. If I were to open the headlight I would also swap the lens to a clear lens.

    Can anyone post photos of the projector cutoff at night? What projector does the ILX run?

    I should be as easy as taking off that outer lense and unscrewing the screws for that cover if any. I think it would be even cooler if we could some how make that piece clear again or "white" with a switch back LED behind it just so the light is dispersed nicely.
