personally im biased towards the cooler color like the newer Lexus lineup has. im rollin with 6k right now. looks white in pics, but sky blue in person. as for the light switch, im not sure about the drl situation, but basically all you do is find the light sensor and jump the connectors. heres a vid from when i first found mine to give you an idea...... go ahead and skip through all my rambling bullshit thats been proven to be stupid to 2 mins in lol.

The Bonne only has one "twilight" sensor, the one you see centered on the dash. As far as bypassing it goes, good luck. the only thing I haven't tried is wiring several resistors together to match the exact resistance of the sensor when in light (which is around 70-80 something ohms). I tried a 100 and tried leaving it open.

Different things for different cars. The only way i could disable it on my car was to wire in a resistor. I personally don't like the auto feature as my previous vehicle didn't have it, so thats what i was used to. Also, my hids go all wacky when i start the car with the lights on.. one side will flicker, and not stay on once the car was started.

I've had auto lights since I was in highschool with my 200 Olds Intrigue. The only one I didn't like was my Camaro, because for some reason you couldn't shut the lights off at night unless you clicked the e-brake.

This proved to be annoying when I would roll into the gates of military bases at night where they like you to turn off your lights.
