    he has not contacted me yet on when or where he would like to do this so for now there is no walkthrough at the moment. If you would like this done to your car simply wire up the relays like discussed and hide the relays anywhere you like. The reason why i want to do a walkthrough is because i actually implanted the relays in to the actual fuse box under the hood. The only way you can tell there are aftermarket relays installed is through the wire connecting to the battery and the green tape because i ran out of black tape . But if you would like to be the how to walkthrough person i would be more then happy to assist you in doing so. PM me for more details

    Yes, sorry I haven't been able to tackle this yet. I have all the parts ready to go, but no time to get it done because of the new baby. I barely had enough time to stick a little shaded opaque sticker on my Electrochromatic mirror yesterday.

    I'm actually trying to put together a wiring diagram which I hope McGuyver will edit for me.

    McGuyver's setup is very clean. His fuse panel doesn't even look like its been modified.

    No problem guys, Skarbro, first and foremost, congrats on the new edition to your family. I'm not rushing anyone if that's how it came across, I was just reading up and thought I'd see. I wouldn't mind getting this done, but like Skarbro, I'm insanely busy lately (no kid though). If time permits, I might just PM you McGuyver and take you up on this, I'm still waiting on my lows to come in though so I'll let you know. Thanks guys.

    OK it's been a couple of weeks now since McGuyver rigged up the new DRL mod on my car and installed my HIDs.

    Gotta say that I'm LOVING it.

    I elected to make the fogs the DRLs instead of the highbeams.

    Now the fogs come on as DRLs exactly the same as the headlight bulbs used to - when you turn on the ignition with the e-brake down. No need to have to remember to turn them on manually like the independent fog mod. And they don't stay on after the car is turned off like the indy fog mod.

    I still have all the same options as stock using the same controls. I can turn on the fogs with the HIDs or turn them off.

    It took me a couple of tries to do the flash-to-pass mod (disabling the HIDs from turning on when using flash-to-pass) but now it works perfectly. Only the highbeam bulbs come on when I use this function.

    And when you look under the hood, there's virtually no trace of the mod visible.

    Pure genius. I can't believe this isn't catching on more.

    I'm looking to pick up some HIDs soon.

    Who should I get to do the install? I want a decent quality install of the DRL to Highbeams mod.

    EDIT:

    McGuyver I know you were having issues with running the highbeams, has that all been cleared up?

    He wasn't having any issues as far as I know. The only thing was that they were brighter than expected - but he verified that they are the same brightness as the 2007 DRLs.

    McGuyver doesn't have this issue because that bulb is blown on his dash.

    My dash dimmer works fine. And I don't have the dash light problem because I'm using the fogs as the DRLs instead of the highbeams.
