4300k is what we used and it is a dead match.

I have 4300K on mine and they are a very close match. They look sooooo much better than the factory bulbs.

Comparing factory vs. LED. Notice how much brighter it appears. They actually put out enough light that you could drive around at night with the headlights off and still be able to see somewhat.



Both bulbs in.

It definitely lit the bay up more and it just made the car look like it was a higher end vehicle.

From a cosmetic standpoint it looks a lot better but also in the shop with the overhead lights off you could immediately see more light.

How do these compare to the ZL1 fogs?

I currently have a 2010 2SS/RS that I'm doing the ZL1 conversion for. Obviously the RS fogs would get this bulb, but what about the 2nd set of ZL1 lights?

If you go on our website in the ZL1 side there is a lighting section. They are all listed there.

I did the 5 k bulbs. To me they were a closer match. Big difference when driving and it looks like it should have when GM built it.

Anyone bypass the DLR lights or should I say, added a switch to turn them on and off manually? Mine turn off when the headlights come on and there is no switch to turn them on.

I've got a switch on my DRL's but it came with the harness I bought.

What we installed on his car was just 2 bulbs and a plug and play harness. Vendors can't post pricing in the tech forums but it is under triple digits.
