    My latest mod...

    Hey all, just thought I'd show you my latest mod which I think is pretty cool.

    Got the idea off my mate who's just done it to his Civic:



    JDM style running lights!

    Comments and opinions welcome as always

    And before anyone says it, yes they are legal because these are running at 5w, and the indicators still work at 21w

    Because it's effectively two seperate bulbs, one at 5, one at 21.

    And if they're pulling me over, they should pull over every new 5 series BMW, and every Volvo ever? They have more or less the same thing.

    Plus, they come fitted like that as standard on all import Hondas.

    It would be unfair

    but with two blue lights next to the grill, they may say you are impersonating plod officer, espescially in a white car too

    Looks good, but I reckon you will get pulled over for them, regardless of bulb wattage, as it could potentially be 'confusing' to other motorists

    Older volvos have day running lights, which are an entriely separate unit to the indicator that emits a white light, same for saabs of that age.

    Newer ones run with with either dipped beam permanently on, side lights, or off, there is a screw next to the light switch that the driver can adjust.

    But hey, it would be boring not to try it

    I'm on about the ones with the orange strip thing next to the headlight, bms and volvos.

    Anyways, here's a vid, hopefully it'll work:
