How Do LED DRLs Make Your Porsche Stand Out?

In many people’s eyes, daytime running lights (DRLs) are a function that are just there; it only exists so other drivers can see you. DRLs aren’t very exciting to talk about either because they are not very bright nor are they fun to look at. And if you’re not a car fanatic, you might not even know that DRLs are a part of your headlight assembly! (honestly what normal person can tell?) However, one dear customer DOES know what they are and knows how to utilize the Audi A6-style xenon white LED daytime running lights to its full potential.

Upgrading a Lexus IS Needs Only a Slight Touch (Why I Like The Lexus IS)

While I can’t imagine adding aftermarket parts to what to me is the perfect car to have, its hard to ignore the upgradability of the Lexus IS. Besides a new set of rims, one part that can be easily upgraded is its set of fog lights. Fog lights add to the lighting capabilities of the Lexus’s head lights and daytime running lights. And even though the stock fog lights are decent enough as it is, wouldn’t it be nice to change its color? With the JDM style 15W high powered LED fog lamps, you can.

The second generation Lexus IS has become a popular vehicle since it was introduced in 2006. The popularity has grown over the years because the aggressive sporty body style and comfort. This entry level sedan has won over the young age group.

The daytime running lights are a standard feature on the Lexus IS with the intention of providing additional safety on the road during the day. Since the Lexus IS shares the daytime running light bulb as the high beam, it cannot take a LED on its own. In daytime running light mode, the factory module operates the bulb at 6V approximately 30% power and LEDs require 12V to operate. The Lexus IS250 9005 LED DRL kit includes two 9005 LED bulbs and 2 DRL Decoders to prevent any flickering issues once installed. The LED bulbs connect to the decoders and the decoders connect to your factory harness. It truly is as easy as it sounds. Once you replaced the 55W factory halogen bulbs and turned on the car, you will notice a significant difference the LED bulbs gives appearance wise. Once the decoders are installed, you can confirm there is no flickering by standing afar in front of the vehicle.

50W 9005 CREE LED Daytime Running Light Bulbs on Lexus ES350

The 2007 and up Lexus ES350 uses 9005 sized bulbs for the daytime running lights and it is quite obvious to see the benefits to upgrade to LED lights. The factory incandescent halogen bulbs provide a dull, yellow color that is nothing special or noticeable. The 9005 LED bulbs that this ES350 has installed turn that around by providing a more crisp and stylish HID-like color that is sure to draw attention driving down the road.

These LED bulbs use ten 5W high power CREE Q5 XP-E LED diodes per bulb and all operate together for a combined output of 10W. Since there are eight CREE LED diodes on the side, it provides the 360 degree shine to fill up the housing while the two on the top project light outwards thanks to the magnifying optical lens. The lights are also rated at 6000K so they are our classic Xenon White color so it would go great with our other Xenon White lights. Keep in mind that even though these high output bulbs are very bright, they are not intended to be used for high beam lights at night. Your high beams will still operate, but they will not provide you the same amount of light output as they once did; these are more for aesthetic purposes only.

These lights would not work by themselves so they require our Lexus R4 setup which includes a pair of canbus decoders to prevent issues such as flickering and error messages. Using the 9005 CREE LED high beam and daytime running light bulbs by themselves may cause issues such as partial light up, flickering, and errors. The setup is completely plug and play so it requires no modification of the wiring and is very easy to install, but make sure you follow the instruction guide that comes with the kit so you install it properly.
