    ILX LED Daytime Lights

    Anyone have any good places to get LED daytime running light bulbs? Want to switch out the OEM bulbs with something with a different color.

    Any pictures would be great to share too!

    which area are you from? Maybe try looking local if you want them asap. But if you want to save some cash you can go on ebay but the shipping time is killer but you pay less for the LED light itself.

    Are you talking about LED DRL strips or DRL bulb? You can get DLR LED bulbs at vleds.com

    Buying them local at a good shop is always your best bet just incase you need to get a replacement LED. But buying from a place like the retrofit source is recommended.
    Do you know what bulb number to look for??

    No i'm not really sure what to look for. I've never installed LED's on any of my previous cars before.

    I just want to change out the yellow daytime bulbs into a "whiter" daytime bulbs. Possibly do the same for the fog lights as well.

    Any coaching on this would be great!

    I don't have an ILX of my own, so I can't really help you out when it comes to bulb numbers, but the numbers you need can be found in your owners manual.

    Installation is fairly easy.

    Your DRL is bulb 9005 ~ If you swap these out know this, the only way to change the color is to lose the effectiveness of your high-beams near completely.

    Your foglights are H11 bulbs. They're very easy to swap out. Your headlights are 5K HIDs so 5K or 6K foglights should do the trick!

    I personally use Home page, however they're more expensive.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the help guys! I just bought a LED kit from Ebay and expect to install them the next week or so. I'll take a pic and show you when it's done! Wish me luck!

    Is there any way to easily disable DRL's? Sometimes I'd rather just run with parking lights.

    what if you changed the drls with an hid kit. I guess that would help with the effectiveness of the bulb but blind the crap out of the oncoming cars.
