BMW 745Li Using LED Strip Lights For Daytime Running Lights

LED strips seem to be the recent craze in regards to automotive lighting modifications thanks to its ease of installation. As long as there is enough room on the vehicle, these LED strips can be fitted with some slight work. Our LED strip lights are all universal and do not have a specific application; we provide measurements of how long they are so that the customer can measure their application prior to installation to make sure it fits.

On this 2003 BMW 7-series, the customer decided to install the LED strips right above the fog light on the flat area. This particular LED strip did not come with adhesive tape unlike our other styles so for installation, you need to supply your own adhesive tape or use silicone epoxy to bond the strip to the vehicle. There are two wires that power up these 20” 48-LED strips which are connected to any power source you would like the strip to be on with such as your parking lights for running lights or 12v ACC+ wire to act as an LED daytime light strip; the possibilities are almost endless. The LED strip is also flexible s it can conform to unique shapes; on this 745Li, the outside edge slopes down slightly and can be compensated for by bending the strip.

BMW F30 328i Daytime Running Light LED DRL Bulb Replacements

The newest generation BMW F30 3-Series BMWs with non-Xenon factory headlights use a PW24W daytime running light bulb inside the headlight. These lights share the lower half of the high beam housing and are only on during the day when the vehicle is on and driving. The factory lights use a regular incandescent filament bulb which produces a dull yellow color which takes away from the luxury look that the BMW has. LED replacement bulbs are available that change the color from yellow to a sophisticated 6000K Xenon White that will add to the class of the car.

The bulb is designed to replace the factory glass portion and the plastic adapter will be re-used. The whole installation is 100% plug and play and requires no modification to the factory components so it is reversible if you ever decide to go back to stock.

These LED replacement bulbs have 18-SMD 5050 LED diodes per bulb and is available in only 6000K Xenon White to give you that HID-like look which will better match aftermarket 6000K-range lights. Not only do these BMW F30 DRL lights give you a better color, they are also about twice as bright as the factory Philips PW24W incandescent bulbs.

iJDMTOY 9005 LED Daytime Running Light Kit for a Lexus IS-F

The Lexus IS-F is equipped with standard daytime running lights from factory just like the previous IS models. Before the LED daytime running light bar was made standard, it utilized the high beam bulb at a lower output to use as the daytime running lights. The daytime running lights for these cars operate at roughly 6-8v which is about half power of the high beams. Unfortunately, the factory incandescent LED bulbs are a generic yellow color and do not look right on a luxury sports car like the IS-F. We have an LED DRL kit for this car and other similar Lexus vehicles that transforms the yellow into a modern HID-like color.

Replacing just only the daytime running lights with an LED bulb will result in issues such as error messages; this is why we have included a pair of can-bus decoders with our kit. These can-bus LED decoders connect directly to the factory harness and does not require modifications to install; the factory dust cap will have to be removed from behind the daytime running lights though, but that will not create any problems.

Our LED DRL Replacement Kit is available in either our classic 6000K Xenon White or exotic 20,000K Ultra Blue; we recommend Xenon White due to its popularity and acceptance as a replacement light color. Ultra Blue is available, but we do warn that the color may be too exotic and may attract attention from law enforcement. Each bulb has 68-SMD LED diodes on it and produces enough light allow the car to be safely seen during the day. However, due to the design of LED lights and their low wattage output, these lights would not be suitable for use as high beams; these are an aesthetic upgrade for the daytime running lights.

LED Daytime Running Lights Replacements for a 2013 Mazda CX-5

For most of the newer passenger cars that are equipped with factory daytime running lights, they also function as another type of light such as the turn signals or more commonly, the high beams. This is true for most vehicles, but for a select few, they have dedicated daytime running light bulbs depending on what type of headlight trim the vehicle has. In the case of the 2013+ Mazda CX-5’s, the halogen headlight trim uses the high beams at half power as the daytime running lights and the HID/Xenon headlight trim uses a dedicated daytime running light. With these cars, the high beams are separate and are not changed when changing the daytime running lights.

The factory daytime running light is a P13W sized bulb and can be replaced by our Plasma High Power P13W LED Bulbs; each bulb produces 5W for a super bright output. Each bulb contains one CREE Q5 High Power LED on the top with magnified optical projector lens and four 3-Emitter Plasma LEDs on the side to create 360 degrees of light. These are a direct replacement and require no modification of the wires and no additional components. Other drivers will definitely notice you with a 1200 lumen of output per bulb during the day; this is a wonderful safety and aesthetic upgrade for your CX-5.

Stand out from the rest of the traffic with these lights for your car.

2006+ Honda Civic 9005 High Beam LED Daytime Running Lights

The daytime running lights are on whenever the vehicle is operating for the 2006+ Honda Civic so it’s a noticeable part of the car. The incandescent halogen bulbs that originally came with the car are very generic and do not give it any unique qualities to the car; our LED DRL replacement kit is aimed to provide an aesthetic and unique look. The 9005 high beam DRL kit comes with the LED bulbs, wiring harness, and resistors to prevent any error messages and flickering from occurring.

Honda Civic 9005 High Beam LED DRL 1

The high beam LED DRL Kit for the 2006+ Honda Civic uses 68-SMD LED Bulbs that are available in either 6000K Xenon White or 20,000k Ultra Blue; this customer opted for the 20,000K Ultra Blue which are considered for “off-road” use only due to the exotic color. The whole kit is plug and play so there is no need to re-wire or cut any factory harnesses; you will just need to secure the wires and position the resistors to a metal surface away from wires and plastic. While these lights are perfect for the daytime running lights, these would not be an ideal replacement for the high beams at night due to their low intensity; these are purely an aesthetic upgrade.
