    Mission accomplished. 2016 LED light intensity on a 2015 (in parking light mode shown). Directions above work well - one wire change on each light assembly. Had a co-worker do the bumper removal in his well-equipped garage - said it was straightforward and easy, but lots of clips, etc. to remove.

    Thanks again to Dthomas1 for the pioneering work.

    No, still amber DRL's. The LED's operate as before in PL mode, only brighter. Everything else is the same. The inability to have that LED intensity change in DRL mode is addressed earlier in this thread.

    Congrats - nice workaround to get the brighter DRL's you've wanted (even if you have to run in PL mode and manually switch headlights on). It really does change the look/"attitude" of the car versus the amber incandescent DRL's.

    Curious if this mod keeps the LED Brows bright in Headlight mode too (as they dim back down versus DRL mode when headlights are on with my 2016)?

    I am pretty certain that the headlights still come on at night and even shut off automatically so really you can leave it in Parking mode 24/7.

    No I'm pretty sure they don't...only in auto mode will your headlights come in automatically...if you are in parking light mode then only those leds come on and your interior lighting dims.

    Nice! There's no reason this shouldn't also work on a 3.8 I'm assuming? No trouble getting the brown wire out and back into the empty slot?

    3.8 should be the same. No, wire comes out easily.
