Then you want the bowtie to be a running light so do not order the DIC

aac correct me if i am wrong but the DIC would give you the ability to hook it up like the brake lights right? One brightness all the time then brighter when you step on the brake.

I have the DIC and I say, for an extra $10, get it. While your car is running, it will be on and match the brightness of your running lights. Then, when you hit the brakes, it'll brighten and match the brightness of the brake lights. Why not? Honestly, DIC or not, I don't know of any cons.

I'm just curious as to why you put when you started the thread with that post? (Usually, that's used for someone posting something that didn't read the thread and it's already stated.)

On a side note, I'd get the dual intensity for brighter when I applied my brakes as stated above.

I got the DIC. I did not like the look so I ended up hooking up both to the running lights.
when I had it hooked to the running and brake lights, when the brakes applied it looked good but when the brake were not applied the bow tie looked 1/2 lit.

That's weird. This is just running, no break. This probably 6 months ago when I got it. It never looked half lit to me.


And now with my afterburners.

Mine did not look like that unless brakes were on or both sides where hooked up. The top left was out or the bottom left would be out if hooked up to running and brakes. Once the brakes were lit the whole bow would be lit.

Something was definitely wrong with yours. Running or braking, none of the LEDs turn off. They only get brighter.

Not necessarily, we had several custom orders like that

Of course, but I meant if all he ordered was the normal bow tie with dual intensity, it shouldn't have done what he's describing.
