Philips DRL Install

Tony,
Great job on the install.
I work for Philips Automotive and I am responsible for all DRL in North America. We are in the process of launching the DRL8 and DRL4. The Euro version you have will not be available in US.

You sure did do a very detailed documentation of you install. May we get permission to use your photos and some text on our Facebook page and in some other media? The other thingI am working on right now is applications like this with Ford direct. They are interested and although it is a slow process we hope to see our DRL at every Ford dealer next year. The lights can be purchased on Amazon right now. Visit our FB page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Xplore...24325367598588 and DRL info at http://www.daylight-led.com/daylight/.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Hey Mike,

Absolutely. Keep me posted on where they may end up so I can check them out.

Pretty exciting that you may be looking to work directly with Ford. Can't wait to see what Philips comes up with.

Tony

Philips DRL Install

Go to our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/PhilipsAutomotiveLighting
and see a post I just put up about my new 2012 Ford Fusion with 3 sets of DRL4. This is an actual car that I loaded the picture up to our web site http://www.daylight-led.com/daylight/
From this site you can "test out" a set of lights on a picture of your car.
Ford is big on our list but as many of you may know it is a VERY slow process to get in at the dealerships. I am confident it will happen, just don't know when.

I thought DRL's would be over-the-top but they're starting to grow on me

One example of how they grow on you. My familty loves it when I am in a big parking lot to pick them up and they can pick my car out of thousands of cars instantly. They are also cool at dusk with your parking lights on and the DRL. Very cool look.
