max8176 Anyone have these on their car?

Does the DRL works automatically or will have to hook up?

I also see these on another website.

They claim no additional wiring is required.

Or is the lights from The Lighting Firm better? They have ones with bi-xenon. Their lights already came with HID hook up. The other two I have to hook up a HID kit, right?

On these headlights the actual headlight bulb is on as DRL's so if I ad the power source to the LED strip I will have the headlights and LED strip on during the day but I'd really like to have just the LED strip on. Now my question is do you know how would I be able to eliminate that hradlight to be on during the day as the DRL?
You can use Focccus to disable the DRL.

Not the ones in the OP, but these are almost identical:

In other markets, NOT THE U.S., this is used as a 'cornering lamp'. That is not the case here. So. One these headlights, from this manufacturer, there is no use for the inner most light.

The LED brow IS the parking light. Without wiring it as a DRL it ONLY comes on when the parking lights are on, or the headlights have been turned on. The LED brow is the parking light. As you saw in the above post I wired them to be DRLs.

The high-beam comes equipped with an H7 bulb. I upgraded mine to the Sylvania ZXE H7 for better light output and a whiter light.

The low-beam is the projector. It REQUIRES a H7 bulb. Whether you choose to go HID (which I did, you can find that information in a later post) or halogen is your choice. You'll find pictures for both as I wanted to let those reading this see the difference. Projectors are MEANT for HID lights, but can be ran with halogen. Your H11 bulb in the stock housing WILL NOT work. The connections are different.



With halogen:



With HID (6000k):

Got mine today. The inner light on mine works. Its a bright led that stays on.

F35-JSF I just bought a set of these. Where did you get your hid kit? Can anyone recommend a good place for a kit? Guess I need the bulbs, ballast and resistors.

So they have these LED lights at work and light up the road really good thought I'd get one and cut it open to see if I could fit it in the MK3 housing.



EDIT:
Added a night shoot low beams.
