Cheaper DRL Kit

Hey guys, I've been wanting to get the DRL kit from truck fancy but their price of $359 was a bit ridiculous for me, found this which is essentially the same thing

http://www.aliexpress.com/product-gs...olesalers.html

its only $131.95 right now.

nice find! i want those drl but $350 is rediculous. Our cars are new we dont need the actual plastic part, they should just sell the light and the wiring harness. For just over $100 this is a realistic price.

Are they matte black or shiny? cant tell in the picture

If you scroll way down the page there's larger images. They look matte to me. Spot on price though. Nice find!

They do! Go to amazon, search philips drl, spend @ $90, take an hour tops to install, and enjoy. Theres a thread on here somewhere with someone that did this if you search a bit.

Personally, I trust a name brand like Philips much more than some mystery brand.

Here is the link for the Phillips install:

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...ight+bulb+type

I just ordered the PHillips lights. I've installed DRL's with 3 diferent sets of lights and they keep failing. All from different manufacturers and with costs from 20 to 80 dollars. Hoping the Phillips are better quality because all the rest suffered from vibration damage to burned surface mounted resisters. Good luck with these, I'd be leery of the quality.

Oh, the front triangle grills just pop out with a good plastic wedge and painters paint to protect the starting area. NO need to go from behind or under as in the write up.
