i want to make the DRL/high beams yellow, but am unsure about how to go about this...do i buy PIAA yellow ion bulbs? do i spend 75 bucks to get yellow vinyl placed over just the DRL part of the headlamp? any suggestions?...i want the super yellow, like on le mans racers.

Since the High Beams are running at half wattage when they're being used as DRLs, they won't look YELLOW YELLOW, unless you use LEDs. However, PIAA's ion yellow stuff does look yellow-ER than stock. So, get those.

Just type in google 9005 Nokya yellow Bulbs or 9005 Yellow Lumnics Bulbs. a lot of things will pop up and you can find your cheapest palce to get them through there or you can use ebay but they might be fake and break really fast.

Yellow = less light. But so long as your kewl...
putting this out their, drls's aren't really meant to illuminate the road. just make you more visible in the day time.

and as bright are a higher voltage and more direct beam then low beams so even with a yellow bulb they put out more light then your low beams
