    I've done the ijdmtoy 64 ones twice, drivers side burnt out both times within a month. I'm going to put in an inline resistor and try a different bulb for a few months, will post up for everyone if it works for a wihle. For now most should just chill while a few of us go through the hassle of playing on again off again with the bumper trying to find some LEDs that will last

    I am in that exact same boat extrabolts. Mine have failed twice within a month's time of install. Sick of pulling off the bumper just for those two lights. Problem is they look so Damn good when they are working!

    Installed the new ijdmtoy 5W CREE LEDs yesterday and they barely light up the DRL area at all. Waste of money, even if they do last. The search continues...

    A few weeks in and my 5W CREE bulbs are still alive, will update again in a few months if they survive. It is more of a projector bulb with the light at the end and only a handful of LEDs around the sides. I prefered the look of the 64 SMD bulb with all of the LEDS around the sides because it lit up the entire DRL area, whereas this bulb almost looks like a small headlight. Anyway definitely better than stock.

    Mine are going in this week. It's good to know they at least last, do they get brighter upon warm up?

    Does anyone have a link for DRL replacement bulbs that are a cleaner white but NOT LED? One of my first LED DRLs has burned out. I'm fine with regular bulbs if they make a more white version.

    It was strange but the bulb died slowly. One day I noticed it was off but then it was working again for a while. Now it's been dead for two days straight.

    Re: Cts-v led drl

    I just purchased some bulbs on ebay and should be getting by next Wednesday. I'll install that weekend and upload some pics. They cost me $24.95 shipped. I've tried leds in the past and come to find they don't last as long as they claim they should. Hopefully these will work out great. Here's the info on the bulbs: Nokya Arctic White H16 5202 35 Watt Stage 1 Twin Pack NOK7489

    ----------

    Found a video on youtube of what they should look like. They're said to be 7K (Bluish) upon start up and then turn white (5k) as they warm up.

    Awesome...thanks man. I'm done with the LED bulbs. They're too much of a PITA to change to have to do it every few months. And frankly, the one bulb hasn't burnt out. It just chooses to work some days and not others. Must be on furlough with the government shutdown.

    I love these lights. Day and night difference. The pictures do not do the lights justice. Really happy with the outcome.
