I do have DRL ... Daytime Running Lights ... as for pictures ... well ... imagine your car with the high beams on ... but ... with a lot less light ... that's what it's like ....

it uses the high beam ... but the high beams are a lot stronger

yes that's exactly how i wanted it. i ordered my kit from autobarn.com (still waiting for it to come). i also ordered the APC 9005 Icy Hot Gold bulbs (forgot what website) and they are pretty yellow.

what kind of yellow bulbs does your friend uses?

DTB I did not install it myself. after all that time i couldn't figure it out so i had to pay some guy to do it. i'm just not cut out for this. my little knowledge of installing anything is a challenge even the ease of installing the HID's, i can't even do that well as long as everythings installed i'm happy and BTW thanks for all your help DTB

oh yeah DTB, i got pics of my HID's. You can check it out here:

members.cardomain.com/lowincash

Looks good to me. I understand that most photos add glare. I'm sure that it is not too glary in person.

Keep up the good work...

Yeah, you cannot tap the high beam wire from inside the dash. You have to run wire through the firewall and tap the actual wire in the engine bay.

Just tell the shop to run new wire to tap into the high beam wire inside the engine bay. They were tryin to tap into the high beam wire inside the cabin, and that won't work.
