They look nice, but for me they would look a lot nicer if I could get them painted Victory Red rather than black plastic. Possible???

All PM's replied!

Currently there is no color matching option available. They may change this in future production batches (I haven't heard any mention of it but it seems like a reasonable possibility) but this first round will arrive all sealed up with the black bezels.

Just had order #20 locked in with many more already pending!
I personally guarantee your best lighting experience here and appreciate all of the orders. Can't wait to see them on the streets and flooded all over the forum!

So, the DRL is not like the C7 it's the amber turn signal?? I thought the LED "L" part would be the DRL.....

The "L" led is the day time running lights. He was demonstrating of what the turn signals looks like during the day for us.

Do the DRLs turn off when the headlights are off and turn signals are applied? Curious what state the lights are in in the screenshots a couple posts up where just the turn signals are illuminated.

It does seem like the DRLs stay on when the headlights are on and turn signals applied. Is that right? Just want to make sure I understand them correctly haha.

I think GingerGranny got confused because the captions for "Parking Lamps" and "DRL On" should be swapped. From the pics and caption, it makes it seem like the DRLs are the orange parking lights.

The DRL turn off when the headlights are on. The white LED turns on with the lites. I am not sure, but you may be able to reverse the white lites to run as the DRL.

The first post shows how the DRLs are on while the headlights are on though. You're saying the DRLs (the "L" shape light) turn off when the headlights are on?

I think we're getting confused. Which lights are always on when driving? Is it the "L" shaped light or the amber ones on the outside? I always thought the DRLs were the "L" shaped light. Going to be a huge bummer if that's not the case.

The L shaped is on when the headlights are on .
The DRL are amber on the sides. Also the turn signal
The L shaped LED is also the parking lamp.
Turn signal can be sequence or all on.

Glad the turn signal can be all-on!

Sort of a bummer the L-shaped white light is not the DRL ... but, oh well.

What are your overall impressions on quality and light output?

Thank you for clearing this up. Good info to have as some of the stock photos are a bit misleading on that.

If anyone has placed an order under any other impression and would like to back out of them due to this, please let me know ASAP. You are not stuck but I would like to get it taken care of before placing the large stocking order.

Maybe the turn signal can be swapped for switchback LED bulb

Can we switch some wires before plugging them in to make the L the DRL?

I like them, they look good and put out good light.. It gives the car a different look. I personally will not be keeping my set. Just because I am redoing my OEM with better projectors and a new lens.. I live in Atlanta so I was nice enough to take time out of my day to lose my car for a day while they installed and took photos.

That's a huge bummer on the DRLs.

That seems like a dumb design choice to me.

Couldn't agree more. Huge bummer. Not sure what I'm going to do now.
