Found a good set of plug and play LED DRL's for our cars

Hey guys, thought I would share since throughout my search for a set of LED DRL's for my car, I wasn't really finding much recent information on a good set of lights. A while back it seems people were using VLED but it looks like they discontinued the type we needed. But, I went out on a limb and bought these Simdevanma 9005/HB3 bulbs off of Amazon for $40 that I found one forum member recommend. I can confirm that they work perfectly and are 100% plug and play. My high beams still work and no error codes. Here's a pic, again I just thought I'd share. The passenger side looks brighter for whatever reason in this pic because they were flickering in my camera, I promise its not like that in person. If you're looking for some LED DRL's for your car check out Simdevanma

Thank you, LS1SSChris. I've been interested, in installing DRLs on my 03 TLS, for some time. I'll check these out.

If you don't have codes, and it actually has two levels of brightness (DRL <--> High Beam), then it's a steal.

The Amazon bulb I got in 2006 threw codes, and had only one level of brightness.

The VLEDs I'm sporting now have been perfect. No codes, DRL is not too bright, and highs are nice and bright.

Here is a screen shot of the order confirmation from last year. Spendy, but totally worth it. Car looks so much better with LED DRLs.

Yeah I'm pretty sure those are the ones everyone was recommending on here in a thread that I was reading. I was looking for those and couldn't find them. But yup the bulbs I have retain the high beam function like stock, its actually much brighter too. No codes, no flickering, for $40 I cant complain

What was the lumens and wattage you got? Does it match the low beams color as well?

7600 lumen and I believe its 60 watt. They are ever so slightly more white than the low beams but I still think it looks pretty good. Just put a set in my friends TL type s and they work perfectly in his car as well

How is the high beam visibility at night as compared to stock 9005 bulbs?

Much, much brighter. I would never use them around other motorists they will definitely blind someone worse than a stock halogen high beam would
