LED Headlights with DRL

Safety was a big concern so I wanted DRL lights. In the evening, the stock lights were just ridiculously dim too. I wired the amber DRL lights to come on with the fog lights so it wouldn't glare back from any fog. I didn't like the turn signals in the headlights as much as I thought I would so this was a good option. I also got the LED tail lights for more visibility.

Now I feel safer driving around!

Looks nice, what part number did you use/where did you source them?

I agree this looks very nice.

Did these fit in the original housing for the lights or did you have to modify it? I know I am going to have to upgrade my lights before to long and have been trying to figure out what route to go.

When I switched my fog lights to LED I used a Par36 led landscaping bulb. It is the exact same size as the GE Fog light.
Vstar LED PAR36 9W (Eq to 50W Halogen) 12V AC/DC Lamp Landscape Waterproof (Cool white)

I selected cool white because my LED headlights are also cool white. Keep in mind these units are very bright.

Is that a reflection or have you added lights to the headlight bucket where the "gills" are, like newer mustangs?
