    Just placed an order for some LED DRL lights for ATS

    I always wanted to put something on the bottom after long time looking and speculating which ones will look good on ATS finally picked these up from Ebay
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/FORD-10-13-M...ht_2941wt_1206

    they are 11in length and 3.5 with and .9 in deep i measured the plastic cover is exactly 11 in lenght and little over 4 high which should really work great

    i will keep you guys posted when i get them and install will take pictures.

    they seem to be very easy to install just drill few holes in the covers and wire them up .

    I would love to add some LEDs up front too. I really dislike the look of those two blank panels.

    Let us know how you make out with the installation.

    Hey romanats, I'm sure you checked out the compatibility f these lights in our ATS. Nonetheless, the site says these lights are not compatible with the ATS. I hope they work, though, as I'd like to do something like this. BTW, once you get a good look at these lights, how well do you think the finish will hold up over time?

    i know they are not saying they are compatible but they have the measurements and it looks like they would fit perfectly so i am going to try to fit them. They are held by 2 screws. I have been looking and i have not seen anything this length to go across the whole cover. They are cheap so if i loose $30 its ok at least i know I tried. But i have a feeling it will work out.

    i'm sure quite a few folks are interested, good luck......a note on this, the E&G LED DRL are interesting to me, not because of looks (the grill is gross) but from a wiring standpoint, i downloaded the install PDF and read through it and the DRL relay it has i think is really cool, makes them automatic, might be something to consider for your project

    I think they flow quite well with the shape of the bumper, obviously nothing is as good as the OEM ones, but I think this is a great alternative.

    But yeah, good job!

    Re: Just placed an order for some LED DRL lights for ATS

    Of course, like many others here, I'm very much interested in installing brake duct DLRL LEDS. However, before doing so, I wanted to be sure that they would fit right, look good, and be relatively easy to install. Given that, I figured I'd wait a while until some vendor made these LEDS specifically for the ATS. But your install looks so damn good, I may not have the patience to wait. Nonetheless, I'll need to ask a few questions before trying to do the install.

    1. Would like to see a close-up of the installed LEDS (close-up of the the brake duct with installed lights)
    2. I know the lights are cheap and can be replaced if they stop working, but I'd like to know how the outer "chrome" edge of the LEDS will hold up. That is, is the material metal, or chrome plated plastic? My thought here is that I would just hate to see the edges start to peel.
    3. Can you tell us a little more about the wiring? I know it is relatively easy, but although I do some modding, I have to screw up my courage to do so...and a good DIY does the trick.

    Once again, romanats, those LEDS really look good.

    Looks very good.

    I wonder how they would look if flipped 180 degrees with the long portion against the top and the ~vertical part toward the center of the car and either against the edge or somewhere in the middle. I might photoshop to see if there are any real clear closeup pics. The way you have them is almost certainly better looking unless a mismatched angle is noticable up close might bother some. Or that placement of the ~vertical might match up with the top LED mod recently posted that runs the LEDs on the inside edge of the headlights as opposed to the outside edge from the factory.
