Piano Black Triangle Grill Inserts Future Option Coming?

Anyone else notice this? The Piano Black triangle grill inserts on the Titanium have removable inserts on the lower half that have a matte finish. It appears they did this on the Titanium to blend in with the open grill since they are both on the same plane, purely aesthetic to fake the opening.

I just wonder though if there will be nicely designed LED DRL option coming in the future that will fit into this area? Different from the current Echomaster listed DRLs.

There are aftermarket LED DRL options that replace that entire triangle piece.

I know, but none of them are really up to par with being OEM. I know the Echomaster ones are sold by Ford as an accessory but they are not as bright as I expected.

To answer your speculation, no. Ford already makes an insert with LEDs.

The one Ford sells is made by EchoMaster.

And licensed by Ford. That's what we're going to get. Nothing else.

No mention of price I see? There are other options if you go to page 2 on the following link Tony made and fitted his own,

Echomaster and other options have been discussed on here.. I just have not found them to look OEM...and designed such. Echomaster is all they offering but they just do not look as impressive in person.. only 5 leds per side...

I have these; from the local Ford dealer and installed them myself, in about 1 1/2 hours.
They seem very well made, except for the cheap Chinese fuses, one of which was already dead. Most people seem to agree, that they look very smart, and well integrated.

Yes they just don't seem very bright at least on White maybe Black or a dark color they look better. Since they are the closest thing to OEM I may get them, if and when my DCT issues clear up... but after seeing this in the grill panels, I was thinking maybe it's a planned feature in 2014 models?
