Day time running light 2012

One of mine is blown out. I am thinking of replacing both with LED However, I remember reading here about lots of problems with melted housings. Did that issue ever get solved? Recommendations on a bulb?

Am I making that up Scott? I thought I remembered numerous problems with LED's as DRL's?

I have been running LED DRLs for about 8 months now. No problems.

It has something to do with the type of LEDs purchased (the ones that melt). Do some searching it is all explained.

Thanks Hyper Duck I just ordered some of the same globes you did. Did not want to risk LED after all the warnings. Thanks for the information much appreciated.
