    Hey Romanats,

    I saw your post and love your LED's. They look clean. I just bought them from the ebay link as well. Can I ask was the mounting to foglight grill pretty easy? just pushing the bolt thru and tightenting? Does the LED sit pretty flush or does it stick out so it looks out of place? From the pics they look very clean. Also, was the wiring difficult? Anyhow...would love to know...they are coming in by this monday. Thanks again

    the kit comes with tamplate you are going to have to drill the holes. You will need to open them up more then the template requers because the bolts are wider tords the back. in order to make them sit flush against the covers. All is pritty simple. mine sit flush. The wiring is simple i just connected them to the orange parking lighso they only come on at night. You can also just run them to the main power and they will be on when the car is on

    Thank you Romanats, sounds very simple. It's my first time messing with wiring so wish me luck. Much appreciated.

    They look great. However, I still can not believe GM dies not offer these standard like every other high end does. They build this amazing car and cheap out on something like this!?!?

    Audi doesn't, BMW doesn't....where do you come up with this crap that LED's are standard on every high end car? Lexus does, but it's entry is $3000 more than the ATS....always a tradeoff.

    I don't think this is the best comparison, BMW and Audi leave these off the beancan most basic car for us that would be the 2.5 standard. when you go up the range to the 2.5 luxury, turbo standard, turbo luxury, and 3.6 luxury, your getting near $50k without the LED DRL when you consider how as the price goes up there are fewer takers, thus there are dramatically more turbo standard and turbo luxury owners than performance and premium buyers, this kind of distribution would look more like a pyramid with the DRL cars at the top and probably half to two thirds at the bottom without. This is probably the reverse with the Germans with more of their cars flashing their brand identity than not.

    This is a point not lost on Cadillac and they have since made every gen3 CTS have the LED lighting whereas the outgoing gen2 CTS was optioned like the ATS with the light pipes on the top models. with the new CTS starting at $46k we now have the absurd situation of more expensive ATS' not having what a less expensive CTS has

    how far do they stick out? Just wondering, cause you can't tell from these pics. Can you snap a pic from the side? Thanks

    Great Job! Nice look. Now all you have to do is move to Michigan so you can lose that nasty front license plate.
