    Has anyone hacked the DRLs to run fully bright, even when headlights are turned on ? I did this hack with my last car- 2017 Elantra Limited- I was able to cut one of the colored wires and splice it into the other and it ran the DRLs fully lit at all times. This added a lot more output at night...
  3. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I feel like this may be a stupid question, but I could have sworn the LED DRLs are typically on when the headlight switch is set to "Auto", but today I noticed they were not on unless I manually switch it to the running lights on the control stalk. Has this always been the case?

I tucked them underneaththat small lip so they're aren't so "out there" and gives a nice ground effect. Love the...

    As the title suggests, do I need to cut my bumper, even though my '11 SX is Korean made? I've read a few web instructions, and they seem to point out that the Korean cars have the narrow bumper. Any Canadians out there that have done a DRL install? Thanks
