if you disable the auto lights (for the night) and you do it the way I did it by tricking the car into thinking its in park, you should be able to override the DRL. I can check on that tomorrow. (when its light out)

silverstars are about the whitest bulbs you can get. Are you still using stock "fog" lights?

yes i'm still using stock fog lights but to tell you the truth i have been too lazy to change the burnt out bulb so i haven't even been using them (seeing as i think if only one works it looks like pure sh*t). so when i do all the light stuff this weekend i'm going to go buy new fog light bulbs

save the money on bulbs and just buy new lights. You can get proburners for like 20 bucks and the output will KILL the OEM fog lights. They can mount to the same brackets.

Or Cyberwhites at Wal-Mart. They are very good lights, durable, superior reflector design, and come out of the box with 55W lamps. The blue lenses filter out the yellows.

The more the pay the better you are going to get, as with most things. the Hella ones which are another 20 over cyberwhites (35-40) are even better IMO. And I've owned cyber whites before.
