Default audi style led running lights. cool or not?

so i havent really thought about the logistics of it yet but i had an idea the other day to get some 12v led light strips and put them in the bottom of my headlight housings and wire them with the turn signals. that way during the day i just pull the light switch one notch and i have the audi style led strips. i wanted to get your guy' opnion on weather you think its cool or not. considering even kia is copying it now lol. id be wrapping them all the way around i think, and an added feature is when i use my turnsignals they will double as those lol.

be honest. i dont want to do something that is just going to make me look like a tool lol.

heres a pic of my lights up close so you can have an idea of what it will look like.
