Yes in the photos they're hard to see because the photos are from an older smartphone with a really piss-poor camera. In person, though, they're quite visible...from a distance even....which is the point of DRL's.

If people can't see a whole car coming at them, a strip of LED's won't help

I noticed the S series Saturn in the pictures. I had a 1994 SW2 that I drove for 17 years and had over 230,000 miles on it when I traded it in. I thought it was a great reliable and durable car. But after having the Focus I now better understand the terms "quiet interior' and 'fun to drive'. Plus it is nice to have a moonroof which was never available on the Saturn wagons. Since the Focus has a higher roof line, it holds just as much as the Saturn did. However I will always have fond memories of that car.

Redofromstart, I believe that there are laws saying when the turn signal is active, that side flashing must have the led drl off. But looks great!

I don't think so. Most cars I've driven with LED DRLs have had the option to not turn LEDs off while signaling (Audi A5, VW Passat Highline with LED DRLs, Chrysler 300).

I have the iJDMTOYS switchback set ordered because I like the fact of having the amber color when signaling. I would like to ask if anyone knows the best place (and wire code) to tap for the turn & parking lights? I have checked the Helms shop manual & all I see is the module linking for data but NO mention of the local wire codes(color).
Any help wold be great.
As for me I would like to have the LED's on top of the headlight but mine is so tight of a clearance that I think that just shutting the hood would break something, so I will just go with under the HL.

I have a pair of these if anyone wants them, I totaled my car and never got a chance to install them. I also have the triangles with white LED DRL that turn yellow when you signal too.

I really want this to work at the HL but the grill lights will be my plan B.
Are you giving up the Focus??

My car was totaled, and I'm replacing it with an Escape. I would have like to get a 2015 Focus, a little wider than the current focus, but they won't be out soon enough.
