    They are not my DRLs. They are my front marker lights, as they are on when I am driving with my headlights on (all lights on). But the DRL's and my high beams are PIAA bulbs (9005). The picture on my avatar is my car with just the parking lights on. They are pretty cool. See post #5 for a link to where I got them and a video of them working.

For my wheels, they had a painted surface, so he had to take the paint off first, which required some sandblasting. He was able to grind out the curb rash that I had incurred over the last two years. Then he did two coats of powder. He did an amazing job and they came out looking amazing and like brand new wheels. These are now my dedicated winter wheels. So far this winter they have held up beautifully.

    If your wheels are brand new and you have no curb rash you can probably do it for less than I did. Totally worth it though!
    Sweet brother. Thanks!

    Very easy. The shift boot pops out no problem and the new piece fits on just like stock. The brake boot was easy but a little more involved because you have to apply adhesive to the boot frame. Overall on a scale of 1-10 I'd give it a 1 as far as difficulty just like anything else just gotta take your time...also be careful not to break the brake boot frame when you are snapping it out.

    Nope they don't! Hard to tell from that picture, but when I am sitting in the car I am looking at the dash from a higher vantage point, so I can see over them to the stock cluster.

    Who made that lip? And yes, you should not have it on your car when it snows. Mine was a causality of the last snow storm.
