    I have been looking all over for this THANKS! Can/Could you describe how to do this without pulling the bumper. Thanks! Or if you know of anyone who has/can do this in DC.

    So the amber driving lights continue to run as DRL in Auto mode and the accent/parking lights burn bright when in Parking light mode or headlight on mode?

By removing the center brown wire and moving it to the empty spot on the connector, the parking lights will then be the brighter version of the lights. The only caveat is that you must turn on the parking lights but it is awesome to have the bright LED eyebrows.
    So you just move the brown wire to the empty slot on the same connector? as indicated in the pics above?

    I just wanted to say that I just did the switch, easy super easy and they are much brighter.. Once you put it in Auto mode they go back to low light.


    Update: now for some reason I don't have fogs working???? has anyone with the tech package with fogs that have done this mod, have the same problem???

    Couple questions:
    If, say an Audi is coming at me with it's LED DRLs on, and a turn signal is turned on, the LED DRL on that side of the car turn off until the turn signal is turned off. On a 2016 Genesis that "comes" with the LED DRLs, does that happen? And once this change is made to a 2015, if the turn signal is turned on, do these LEDs that are now the DRLs turn off?

    Yes the LED DRL will turn off on the 16 genesis the turn signal will become a small amber blink. Unless you purchase OEM Korean Domestic (dual projector) Genesis or G80 head lights, then the entire DRL will blink amber, looks much better imo.

    srobak,
    So if I am understanding you, without doing this "brightening" work on the headlights (bumper removal, electrical, etc.), I could just manually turn on my LED parking lights to use as running lights in the daytime, and then switch to regular lights for night driving? Untalented as I am, that would still be an improvement over the amber DRLs. Right? Tks.
