They are not used as DRL's or high beams, when they come on they are very dim. They don't really perform any function on the SRT.

Did you do this conversion on the upper DRL's?: Headlamp Drl to LED

If not, what did you do to get what you have vs. what the rest of have (like Scott's here below)

The camera exaggerates the light in most of the pictures. Those LEDs really are not bright at all in person.

This picture shows the LEDs the best. This is what you would see in person. I used the SLR for this picture. The other iPhone pics can't expose the pictures right and makes the bulbs look way bright.



These are the bulbs I used.

When testing in the garage I had them unplugged and no warning triggered. As far as having them unplugged for extended periods of time I don't know. I doubt it'll give a warning.

Re: HOW TO: Remove and replace your D1S headlight bulbs

I didn't like those yelllow looking lights at all and had them unplugged for 3 weeks while I was waiting for my LED's and had no warning lights come on.

Zac,

Did you have to change the wiring to make the LED's fire up?

Is there a way to adjust beam on the stock hid? I know there is an auto leveling system but would like the beam just a bit higher
