    I mean that halogen should be a thing of the past like sealed beam bulbs. Led/hid should be the new standard

    would you have an idea how I can get the rear tail lights to come on with the DRL's?

    No one ever complained or flashed me. I've been in my wife car while she has mine from time to time. Passing her at night or having her behind me does not have any blinding affect. At least with the bulbs I use.

    Have you had any issues with this setup? I am not able to find the diode that you used since radio shack is closed. Is there another that I can use?

    I found them and ordered from arrow electronics before I saw this message.
    Thank you very much. I appreciate your help and this thread.

    I will be trying it tonight if it's not too cold out.
