DRL replacements
Yeh, the drab yellow/white looks like crap. So, anyone know if the map light type bulb will work in the DRLs? Are these aka parking lights (DRLs I mean)?

DRLs use your HIGH beams at 40%. The parking lights are different.

Just disable the DRL's if you don't like them, or turn on your regular lights.

i dont get it really frown you have 3 bulbs in your celi, right? one is low beam, another is high beam and there is this tiny bulb on the side which is DRL, right? Now to change DRL, which one do i need from celi store? is it the tiny Polarg 194/168 (M4) Hyper White Wedge (pair) ?? thanks. and is it really worth gettin them if they still look yellow during the day?

again - the DRL uses the high beams on low power. What you are looking at is the parking light (wedge bulb) If you want white DRLs you need a new high beam bulb.
