    After 8 years my running day light bulb went out. I replaced it with a bulb from autozone but it bothers me it it doesn’t look the same as stock. (Stock driver side, autozone passenger side)I prefer the stock ones over the autozone ones. Anyone have a link for the stock running day light bulbs or something that is the same orange as stock. Thanks!

    When you put the bulbs in, make sure you insert them fully.
    You may think they are in but they could be loose. I put the bulbs in and two days later my driver side signal light stopped working. I checked and the bulb fell out and was in the housing. I had to fish it out and reinstall it.

    Color of bulbs is listed on package with higher #s like 6000 whiter so always order 2 and replace at the same time - simple as that. Lighter and brighter have a shorter life they say but my Perdes have been in for over 5 years and still good. You get above 6000 they look blue and piss me off with glare but think a lot of people are simply too lazy or stupid to adjust them.

    I have these in mine. I really like how they look when they are off and they are VERY bright when on or flashing which is great for being noticed. I have the same ones in my wifes ford fusion which I took out of my 08 xB before selling that, those bulbs are almost 12 years old and are still working. They have a very long life! For reference the picture below is running lights on and the halos are Profile brand.

    When one of mine blew....I bought 2 replacements to ensure they matched.

    Picked em up a NAPA after giving them the bulb.

    Not sure if they were an exact match, but they appeared the same to my eyes.
