Default Impreza eyebrow bulbs

So I wired up my " eyebrow" parking lights as my DRLs. There doesn't seem to be room for a strip. So I was looking for a really bright LED bulb. I know some people on here have gone really bright and I have looked and they get longer as the more SMD are on them. I was looking to see what is the longest/brightest LED bulb that people have used.

Havent experimented but I have these for my eyebrows/plate. Seems theyre popular. Not bright enough to be seen during the day like the BMW halo though.

I'm using the 194 LEDs from ijdmtoy. (if I spelled that right) They're pretty standard in terms of size, but they're plenty bright.

The only reason it seems that the "eyebrow" light isn't all that bright during the day is because it's not enclosed in a housing that creates a shadow of some sort. It's open to be dimmed out by the sunlight. They're pretty useless during the day.

Ax this idea. As I was driving I noticed (off of another vehicle) that my sidemarkers were on and my radio display was dim. Because the lights are wired in series, as soon as you power on light then it puts power to the whole circuit. So I removed the spliced in wire. I was thinking of sometime next year to maybe cut the power wires and wire directly to the DRLs or putting the wire back between the DRLS and the fogs.
