HID Fog/LED DRL Installed - PICS

I finally got around installing the HID fogs from morimoto and LED DRLs/Parking from V-LEDS. Im pretty happy with both and feel its worth the upgrade. The pics are below:

TRS Morimoto 4300k Fogs.I'm pretty happy with the color matching the low beams.Ended up installing it with the HD relay/wires.

As you can see form the pics below, the there is no light from the fogs above the low beam cut-off so no blinding the traffic issues.

Looks awesome, how much was this whole set up, and did you do the wedge bulbs in the front parking light too?

You mentioned sport running boards, did you get OEMs or replicas?

I have OEM but I heard the replicas are hard to put on because the screw holes dont fit perfectly with the car.

Interesting. I've read here those eventually throw the drl alert on the dash. How long have you had them in? Thanks for the info in advance

^This is true, someone I know bought the ebay replicas to save some dollars... turns out that all the screws holes didn't line up properly and had to redrill new ones. I would advise to get oem.
