Just curious....HID Question with DRL
I was just wondering if i was possible to replace the DRL's with HID's instead of having the regular bulbs in there. Will the housing hold up to the heat from the HID's?

YES. HID's actually run cooler than halogen bulbs (its the ballasts that generate most of the heat), so that shouldn't be a problem. And they will be bright as hell...ROTARYENGINEPETE

Rotary-- What style bulb should i get? I know there would be some modification to the housing, but i just want to stay away from modding it too much.
Springthing-- Thanks for the link. Ill keep that in mind when and if i do the mod.

Actually you won't need to do any cutting/modification. This website has HID kits with D2S bulbs mounted in adapters for pretty much every style of lightbulb you need. They also have great prices, and the HID kits/ballasts are the same exact as BOSCH and HELLA brands, just with different labels.

so i can get them with adapters to fit the housing? that would be great.

Yep, all you need is the bulb type, and that website should have an HID kit with adapters for the kind of bulb that you need.

Why would you want to replace your DRLs with HIDs...? Your DRLs aren't designed for a night driving type of light... It's a safety device to make you more visible during the day...
I'm not saying not to do it, or anything like that... Just curious on your thought process about it...
