Most trivial thread ever. Daytime running lights or not?

For challenger owners, it’s a matter of personal preference. Do you like the classic look with the yellow running lights, or do you turn them off and just go with the dim white halos? I’ve tried both ways and I think on white challengers the dim white looks better. For some darker colors I think the yellow really pops. What do you guys think? Like I said trivial thread.

Yellow on both Hellcats. The only way to roll. Also turned off the DRL drop out with the turn signals.

Halos only. The amber makes it look dated to me. Dated - not retro lol.

I run the whites too but I don’t know any other car that uses amber led running lights, so in that aspect they are unique imo

Just reminds me of older cars before there were DRL’s at all. When they had their parking lights on at dusk. Amber and kind of ugly imo. Different strokes I guess.

I never knew you could change them..cant say I ever looked at the front as it was running...guess I can safely say...I don't care one way or the other..:unsure::unsure:

I’ll answer it for you. Run the ambers on your demon, and the white halos on you HC. I’ve seen your pics and that’s my vote

Is there a menu option to kill the drop out or did you add an aftermarket light thingy (mustering my bestest tech jargon here)?? I've always thought it was stupid to have the halos drop when signaling !

I think for some reason the amber looks really mean on demons and WBs. Idk that’s why I posted this to get everyones input

I set mine on yellow DRLs mainly for the safety aspect. They're MUCH more noticeable than the white halos, both in brightness and color. I think the white halos look ok, but I have a little more confidence that someone won't pull out in front of me with the ambers on. Just sayin'...

Prefer the Amber.

I tried both and decided the white halos look better with the Destroyer Grey on my WB.
