LED DRL Bumper Strip

Who needs fog lights when you can get an LED strip on your bumper. Recently installed these and testing them out. Will be offering these for sale and installation within a month or 2. Let me know what you guys think

Looks nice but I wonder how they would look smoked? Can't wait for the headlight retrofit to be released!!! THE HALOGENS ARE KILLING ME!!!!

I think they look pretty good! I'd like to see more pics, close up, different angles to see how factory they look.

Hmm that's interesting and could be very cool

I'd have to get rid of the foglight...maybe it could be a replacement part that deletes the foglights and adds the LED strip? Just dreaming out loud

That's a good idea, however I'm thinking that both foglights and a LED strip may be too many lights on the front of the car

So after some time the passenger one started to fog up a little. I don't want to really sell a product that is going to cause any issues so we are going to edit some of the seal to see if that will make a difference. Will keep everyone updated.

For now here are some more photos

I like the look of the LED strip, especially for the stateside Msports without OEM fogs, got any evening or night shots?

I also like the hideaway front plate setup....
