They used to be fully on only in dark environment, and will show a very dim light in daytime, which I guess is the DRL. Not sure if it is caused by wiring. And comments?
Unless you somehow had DRL's before, they shouldn't be on at all unless dark when you have it set to auto. Sounds like a wiring issue to me.

And it is anoying to oncoming drivers. It's too bad the police are short handed and cannot inforce this against those who think they are above the law.
Lol no one thinks they are above the law . I don't get flashed or any of the above . I even asked a co-workers husband (cop) if he ever gave tickets for the blue-Ish HIDs like what I had or if they even care he said he's never wrote a ticket for them and never would unless the lights where actually blue like the lights on his car. Iv been blinded by many HId kits and its bad some times
But these body style mustangs do not seen to be bad about it. Iv driven towards my car and Infront of it while meeting my wife some where and not once did I have to squint or move my mirrors .

Thanks a lot. That's also what I am thinking about. I guess the DRL just comes with automatic transmission, when I put it in D, N or R, the light will automatically be turned on. I also took some photos of my stang yesterday, I will post some tonight. Hope you guys like it.

Retrofiting, although expensive is the only way to get GOOD QUALITY projector headlights. You can buy the aftermarket lights they sell on american muscle with the halos and everything, but you get what you pay for, and they are garbage and will only last a couple months if youre lucky.
i do retrofits, so message me and we can discuss some options for you and work out a reasoreasonable price so your nustang can look even better than it alreadt does!
