Hello Accorders,


I always look at Mercedeses and BMW's LED DRL, and I was always looking for something similar to it on eBay, but I cannot find anything in a good quality, or in a reasonable price!

So I started my own research to make my own foglights with parts that I can find from Chinese sellers on eBay.

First, I bought this foglight (LED strip) from a seller in China for: $13.99



from this link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/281121851831?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

There are more options in a cheaper price, but I chose this one because this comes with Amber LEDs for turn signal. I was sure that the LEDs will be very bad and will not work as I want.

So I ordered some 5W 3.6V LEDs from China as well, with a good price for about: $0.60 a piece, I bought 10 by mistake, I should buy 20 for both sides :( so I ordered more and they'll take about 10 days to be here, so I need to remove them and start over with 8 LEDs each side.

Third, I disassembled the LED strip, got rid of the old ones, and glued 4 new LEDs to each side and powered it directly with 12V from the headlight. (I'll provide you with a picture when I remove them to install the other 4 LED's later in this week, hopefully)

The results! are not really satisfying to me, but they're not bad at all!

In the daytime inside the garage: (I'll take a picture of them in the daytime in the sunlight when I install 8 LEDs each side, however they look good in the sunlight now!)




at nigh time:



From the side:



I'm sorry for any mistakes that I've made in this thread, but this is my first one, I'll try to make better content in the near future :)

Regards,
Mustafa

Those looks cheap (well I guess it is), with the plastic hanging off the ends and the 'home depot fluorescent lighting ceiling looking' pattern on the lens, and widely spaced LEDs.

Nice execution though.

I did state that I ordered the wrong quantity of LEDs and I'll reinstall more LEDs soon, please come back to this post later

Do you have a picture of how you installed it? I'm really curious what it looks like
I'll send them to u in a message as promised
