    Weird because it has the same shape as our ducts. Looks like it is for our car but it can't be. Have never seen it. It would have to miss labeled.

    Same seller probably means same mistake. It says used and it says OEM so its a takeoff. They have to have the car it fits all wrong. I guess a long shot could be from an ATS from some other market. I know the middle eastern ones are the same as the US and Canada (at least in appearance). What about China, Europe, etc? But if so, why sell them in the US and why not give an explanation. I still say its a part off some completely different car. Probably making auctions by cutting pasting and forgot to change the car the part fits.

    FWIW I asked the eBay sellers and they say those are the vertical LEDs that go with the Performance and Premium "brake duct" inserts.

    Don't know why, but I had been thinking the picture was for something that filled the complete brake duct area.

    Cool. I looked at them today and yeah they looked like stock DRL's. But I couldn't tell how big they were by the picture.They looked a lot bigger. It all makes sense now thanks. And yes they looked like they fill the whole duct until I looked at mine the morning. The duct is a lot longer than the pictured lights.

    Is that $96 per light? I would assume. Not bad. I might look into that.

    Re: Finally intalled the OEM DRL and HID on a luxury ATS

    As mentioned in a few other threads, all the 2015s will probably have the headlight LEDs. The fenders and hood didn't change so they will probably fit 2013-14s depending on if Cadillac changed the shape of the bumper cover where it meets the headlight (looks the same in pictures). And I doubt the base and Luxury versions won't have the expensive adaptive aiming and even if they did, economies of scale will lower proces, so cheaper alternatives may be around the corner. I don't know if the 2015 base headlights are HID but I think a lot of 2013-14 owners seem more interested in the LEDs than the HID.

    I remember seeing in some pre 2014 internal docs that the lower collection 2014s might have optional LED strip headlights but it never happened. The 2015 base lights might be that part that never made it into the 2014s.
