The reason I say that is because I know 05 and down Monte/Impala'* run their DRLs off the highbeam and the same with my car. Newer GP'* I know ran the lowbeam, but that was 05+ I think.

It'* complicated.

Here'* the pictures of my HID'*. 5000k lowbeams and foglights in projector housings. The lowbeams are TSX projectors and the foglights are from a Caddy.





Now, I know the driver side looks a different color than the passenger, but it'* not. I swear that they are the same bulbs. What I think is wrong is that the coloring is because I'm using two different brand of ballasts. The driver side is a Xentec and the passenger is a Apexcone. I hope to get this fixed when I call DDM and tell them the ballast I was using kept blowing my bulbs.

Yup I think all 03 up Bonnes use the low beams as DRLs because I noticed Burghthing'* GXP at Dan'* meet had low beam DRLs

I would have to actually turn on my lights. The half-pull on my light **** just turns the center amber lights on. Putting it in gear does nothing.

Ok so essentially you don't have any DRLs then? If so then that'* good for the HIDs, one less thing to have to mess with

GM didn't start putting DRLs in American cars until 1994, so no, he does not have DRL'*.
