    HIDs/LEDs look so much better with the orange parking lamp unhooked..

    Well, I unhooked both of the orange parking lamps the other day and finally got around to taking some pictures of the headlight LEDs and the HIDS and they look so much better without the stupid orange light being on.





    I absolutely love driving around during the day and at dusk with the LEDs on, they look sooo nice!

    Yeah that looks great, I think mine was also unhooked too when it was installed. I say that because I can not remember seeing the orange lamp on the side on when I was checking out my HIDs. Nice job btw.

    I also noticed you did your fog lamps too? I left mine alone because I wanted 2 different tones of lighting. I may change them later on but at the moment it doesn't bug me that they are two different colors.

    Does this affect your turn signals in anyway? Can you post some pictures as to how to do this? Thanks.

    Dude, genius. No idea why I didn't see/think of this earlier. Looks MUCH better. I just yanked the bulbs out and put the plugs back in so no moisture gets in.

    Do you think removing the bulbs or however you do it will affect the computer in any adverse way, such as the turn signals or anything else?

    Not a bit. Those big fat orange side markers just don't come on, that's it. Still plenty of turn signal visibility with the front orange bulb and the mirrors. And actually I don't think those side markers blink with the turn signal anyways. So now they're just big fat reflectors instead. Looks better at dusk with the LED's on only.
