Hello everyone,

I'm new to car mods and I am learning a lot from everyone who gives back to the community. I've search all around, but could not find a clear black and white answer to my questions.
I'm trying to change out my DRL HB3 bulb to an LED bulb that can still use the high beam function. So basically I just want to change the color of my DRL HB3 bulb & still be able to use my high beams.

Got the idea from here

There's a kit in the link, but it's in 5000K. I want 6000K

I found these on vled's website, and was wondering if they are a complete plug-and-play (just pop in bulb and hook in power like the stock HB3 bulb)
http://www.vleds.com/bulb-type/drl-f...45-1-pair.html

If it's not a complete plug-and-play (just pop in bulb and hook in power), would I have to buy these or something else.

Thanks in advance! :)

Chances are you will not find a LED to put in place that will still give the output efficiency like stock high bulbs. I love the LED look in the high beams for DRL but I use my high beams too much when on back country roads and don't want to sacrifice my safety.

This is good advice for anyone, because you never know when you'll need those high-beams, when you find yourself in some really dark territory.

^That light will not yield a working high beam since it's only 500-550 lumens.

If you want an LED I think the VLEDS are the way to go that are supposed to be 2000lm.

Thread here that shows an older version of the bulb that's 1800 lm

I got "80W" LED a while back and i've definitely been bummed there's basically no high beam function and have been mulling whether to pay $120 for the VLEDS [link]

I paid $40 for my LED bulbs and this is what it looks like:






As you can see from the last picture, the high beam is that slight blueish color that can hardly be seen...

Is the bulb you installed a plug-and-play bulb alone ? Or did you had to buy extra stuff to install?

Also can you send a link for your bulbs?

Here's the link:

As I said before, the high beam function is pretty much useless but if you're just looking for a white DRL, this is not bad!
