    Welcome Andraxus ! The Capt is one of, and the leader here, on LED replacements for SRX, and he just had one burn out in under 2 months!

    In my years of experience, I have found:

    ALL brands halogen, headlite replacement bulbs that many use to try and get a brighter, HID type look like the SRX has, in their rides DO NOT last as long as OE bulbs. The "bluer" (hotter the color temps), the shorter the lifespan! I've tried Piaa and Sylvania Silver Stars brands, as well as others. (Slyvania's published a "time/hours use chart. very revealing!)

    LEDs also seem to burn out faster than filament type bulbs. I put them in my Yukon and Buick Enclave.

    Amber vs white seems to matter little.

    SO...... as good as The Capt and others rides look in heavy LED mods, I for one, will only replace the bulbs that are easy to get to! (like the rear license bulbs-3 minutes! Interior bulbs-2 minutes.) Some take hours to change out, and I still have a day job. LOL

    Best wishes.

    Andraxus, you shouldn't have any problem with putting an orange LED or bulb in for the DRL, as long as it is the 7440 bulb. I've wondered what it would look like, but i prefer to have white DRL's when possible.

    Captain - I too run mine all the time. My install of the Phillips H10 HIDs (install posted on this site) have run perfectly! Give them a try. You won't be disappointed...

    OK so have all the lights for the interior. The dome lights are woopin me. The chrome thing came out of its clips, and the 194 bulbs don't seem to want to go into their housing. Was your brother able to fix the chrome housing in front dome, and also how did you get those lights in?

    Re: SRX Mods! *Very pic heavy*

    Yea, those dome's are a pain. We had to take down that centre dome light/sunroof console, pop the lights into their sockets, then pop the chrome thing back into place before we put it back up. It almost seems like you have to do it that way.

    Re: SRX Mods! *Very pic heavy*

    Yep, a 7440 or 7443 bulb fits just fine.

    But like i mentioned earlier, i got a whopping month and a half out of mine before one burnt out, and the other started having problems. I eventually went with PIAA Extreme white 7440 bulbs in my DRL's.

    Re: SRX Mods! *Very pic heavy*

    They're holding up great! I have Nokya 7000K foglights i just installed since my nice LED ones burnt... so my DRL's and fogs are different colours... lol
    I don't have pics of my new fogs, but you've obviously seen the PIAA's.

    Wow Capt! All that work and you're still in the same boat as me. Different lights, with different colors. Why on earth didn't GM just use headlights, fog lights and DRLs that all produce the same color light? A rhetorical question of course. I think we both know the answer to that one. During daylight I use the fog lights in conjunction with the DRLs, so at least the colors match then. But at night white headlights with yellow fog lights look idiotic. Just my humble opinion. Apparently, GM disagrees with me.

    But!, my Nokya 7000K Halogen fogs look close to my Phillips 5100K HIDs! At least to the eye they do.

    Re: SRX Mods! *Very pic heavy*

    I'm attempting to install LED interior lights in my 2010 SRX. I have done this mod on several previous cars. I've removed the light lenses and the larger trim piece, but, I can't get the bulbs out. I would like to remove the entire big trim piece to get to the bulbs from the rear. Do you know if this piece just snaps out? I've put some pressure on it, but, it seems tight. If you do have knowledge about this piece, where are the tabs located?

    Re: SRX Mods! *Very pic heavy*

    I imagine you are talking about the center overhead console, of which there are six tabs, all on the left and right sides of the console, and at the front, middle and back of it. It's tight the first time, then its gets a little less tight to pop in and out after the first one.

    OK, Thanks. I just went back to my car determined to get the bulbs out. I used some pliers and the bulbs came right out.
