    I replaced those with LEDs when I got my Mirage. A year and a half later and they're still shining bright.

    So y'all are telling me that if I replace the bulbs they will work?

    I thought we already had this discussion about the US DRLs not working while the Canadian ones do...

    The lights won't function as a drl. They turn on in addition to the headlights. They can be turned on by themselves if you turn the headlight switch to it's first setting. I usually have them on in this manner during the day.

    I do the same thing all the time, just makes me a little more visible especially since my Mirage is black and the weather here on the Southern Oregon Coast is dark and dreary a lot.

    I just noticed one of the running lights is out on my Mirage as well. I got a large pack of 194 LEDs, but they're all white. Looks like I'll go try and find an amber one. Suggestions welcome.

    They use clear w5w from factory not amber.

    Been using these 2825's for a while at 300 lumens:

    These were added just for fun, but they work and do not throw an error code. Pretty mild light, and not over-powering, if you want to add some color.

    I was wondering if anybody has already done replacing the parklight bulb from the newer hatchbacks' projector headlights? Can it be DIY'd?

    I used this one as a guide to do mine:

    Heres another:

    Edit:
    If your ONLY trying to work out trying to put a small projector in the parking lamp spot, these wont help.
