    Cts-v led drl

    Hello list, I just purchased a 2011 CTS-V and I want to get rid of the yellowish DRLs. Does anyone have pics of their car with this mod? Also, can anyone recommend a particular brand of LED DRL? I know some brands aren't as bright as others.

    Thanks in advance.

    Rich

    BTW, I'm loving my new V!

    Re: Cts-v led drl

    I originally went with these.... http://store.ijdmtoy.com/5202-H16-LE...202_sku_4e.htm but one has burnt out on me. Ijdmtoy customer service has been good so far and they warrantied them and I am just trying to find the time to take the bumper off and replace them. IJDMTOY wants the burnt out lights so that they can troubleshoot and see what happened. They are a purplish blue for reference. Definitely looked cool enough that I actually wanted them on. When I get done, I will take some pics and post. If one of these burn out, I will look to go with something else as pulling this bumper off is a pain in the ass...

    FYI- they do have a new style... http://store.ijdmtoy.com/CREE-High-P...s-p/sku-4p.htm that I may try instead and see where it get me.

    Thanks for the reply. I take it this is not a mod that a lot of people do? I can't seem to find pics anywhere.

    Do you guys have a link to how to replace the drl? Is there a way to do it without having to remove the front bumper? I am putting in an airaid so maybe I can replace the left one at the same time? Thanks.

    I used this thread, http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...light-mod.html he does a great job of explaining it. You CAN NOT get to the DRL's without removing the bumper. Here are the pics and it turns out one did not burn out, but in Cadillac's infinite wisdom they gave a fuse to each side separatley. Oh, well both are on again.IMG_1530.JPGIMG_1532.JPG IMG_1533.JPG IMG_1534.JPG

    Also, keep in mind those pics were taken at at about 6pm when the sun is brightest for reference.

    Nice but too blue for me. I'd prefer a pure white.

    Turn them off and run fogs instead.

    Yep... first thing I do when I fire my car up is turn off my DRL. I do the same in my wife's Yukon. Hate DRLs. there is just no need for them, IMHO

    been searching for the same thing, mine gets here next week. Had a GTO too, was real easy to just pull the fuse and then get rid of the ugly turn signal bulbs with stealth bulbs that would show chrome and light up amber.

    do you think there's a difference in the brightness?

    im also looking at their license plate bulbs as well and they offer two, i like choice, but then i think too much into wondering which is better, etc...

    2) http://store.ijdmtoy.com/5202-H16-LE...202_sku_4e.htm

    what do you think?

    Those 5202's are the ones I am attempting to run...

    Never got more pics because the passenger light went out on me again! Couldn't find a burnt fuse this time. Currently trying to find the time to let the dealer look at it. Running out of patience to keep pulling the bumper off.
