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?

Get with xenondepot. Leds wont melt your housings.

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.

Where did you get them? Link?

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.
