These were popular on 8th forum so I decided to try them out with my 9th. They run about $36 shipped from Amazon and recieved good reviews with the 8th community. Before someone mentions PIAA brand, I would have gone with those but they aren't as yellow and don't give the housing as cool looking of a tint when the car is off. These bulbs were simple plug n play. You don't need to remove anything to put them in but it would have been easier without the battery.

A quick note that may save you some time. If your car was off with the emergency brake up, the DRL will not turn on when you start the car until you release the brake. I thought my bulbs weren't working and spent an hour pulling fuses, replacing the bulbs etc etc until I figured it out. Was an FML moment.

Enjoy the pics:

1st one is with the car off, the amount of yellow you see will depend on viewing angle.

2nd pic is a high beam comparison.

Next is a high beam close up compare.

Last is a far pic of the DRL in daytime.

Which look yellower though, these or the noyka? i can't tell
There was a debate about that on 8th and with a side by side compare, the Luminics where more yellow by about 10-15% I would say. If they weren't side by side I don't think you could really tell.

Awesome. I did the same thing with Luminics a few months ago when I bought my white Si. Glad to know I chose the yellower of the two! I would like to wire it so that the high beams are the DRLs but have neither had the time to search to see if non-LED high beam DRLs is possible (as to not piss off Skrub) nor the time to do it if it is possible.

I have a question, I checked the manual and it says "High beam headlight: 60 W (HB3 for halogen bulb type)" and when I checked the luminics on amazon they are 65 W bulbs. Is it okay to use 65 W 9005/HB3 bulbs on our cars? Sorry I'm still a noob when it comes to car stuffs :unsure:

Yeah that's fine. I have the same bulbs as my High Beams/DRL's. I've had them on since mid December last year with NO issues.

Is it me or do the DRLs look stockish during the day? I love the tint look when it's off tho. I might be grabbing some myself.
