Here is my fog/DRL setup. I have Sylvania SilverStar bulbs in my DRL/Front turn signals. Reason is since I have clear WW fog lenses, with these bulbs they look nice threw the lense when off, when they blink tho, they blink street legal amber color. They were something like $10 at PepBoys auto parts near me in Middle Village.

Now u got a couple options here. You arent gonna use WW fogs, u are gonna go with the STS-V ones. You wont see threw it like the clear WW fogs cause the STS-V ones are diffused. You can use the same bulbs I have and im almost positive you wont be able to see them threw the lense tho. Now you can either drive with headlights on all the time so you wont see the ugly DRLs on, or you can disable the DRLs (http://www.cadillacfaq.com/faq/answers/disdrl/index.html).

In my fogs I have a 8000k HID kit, to get that nice blue/white color that matches my HID lowbeams.

Have a link to those LEDs?!? I'd love some of those, going to disable DRLs this week probably (and try to tell my grandmother why she needs to leave her lights on when driving...)
If you are gonna use LEDs and disable DRLs, try one of these http://stores.ebay.com/Velocity-LEDs_3157-3156_Amber_W0QQcolZ2QQdirZ1QQfsubZ784814QQftidZ2QQtZkm Also, keep in mind if you go the LED route for the DRL/Front turn signal you may need to use a load equalizer (cheap and easy to install, but keep it in mind). Reason is that since LEDs pull such a low amount of power the car "thinks" the bulb is burnt out and you get that really fast blinking rate.

Ok, I am at this point with my mods also. I have the DRL disabler and I also have the WW Fogs. The look I want is for the DRL to look clear when not on and when I use the turn signal I want to DRL's to look white also. Next question is if I do go with the clear DRL and have it blink clear is this illegal in IL, Chicago???
I'm not 100% sure if its legal or not there. But my guess would be that it is illegal. I suggest getting a pair of Sylvania SilverStar bulbs for front turn signals. They look clean when they are not lit and even when they do blink they actually look nice with clear fogs.
