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.

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.
