what kind of bulbs are you guys running in your DRL's and your parking lamps?
I have clear corner lenses, so i put in these bulbs by PIAA that have a bit of a blue tinge to them..they look great with the clear corners when they are off. when the DRLS are on they look great too. but when my headlights are on and the parking lamps/signal lamps come on with them, they aren't bright AT ALL....they brighten up when my signal is on but other than that they are dull as hell..i hate themm.....any pics of what you guys run would be great.

I run all silverstars in the front, high/low beams, DRL and parking and high beam silverstars in the fogs. I got some amber colored LED's for the corner lights, makes everything look uniform at night...no pics, maybe I'll snap some tonight

which ones are you talking about? the blue look dull until they are flashing and then they look really good, the silverstars light up amber

same here when i switch it all out, i just put an amber bulb in the corner to match the orange at least, especially since i cleared the lights, they have to look the same color

well i have a 2001...so my lights arent the same as yours i dont think.

im talking about the lights right next to my DRLs. they light up dull when my headlights are on, but when they flash they light up bright. I wish it was the other way around.

Mauro, pics would be great.
