I'm worried about the DRL mode being too bright though and blinding people with what is effectively a high beam. I'm sure when you hit them with the 12V for high beam it's more than bright enough, just wondering about the 6V brightness.

Also, did getting the fender emblems off give you any grief? Going to be doing mine soon, was planning on using a heat gun and some fishing line.
The lower 6v DRL brightness is bright, but I haven't had any issues since installing them. No flashing from other drivers. It's bright, but nothing I would be concerned about. And yes the high beams are plenty bright and wouldn't be concerned about them being TOO bright since they are used when no one is around. I would prefer them being overly bright in that scenario.

Once I got some leverage on the side badges, they came off easily. The hardest part was getting underneath at first since they are on there pretty well. Heated up with the heat gun and stuck some fishing line behind it to get it started. Once I got a finger behind it, I simply pulled them off as I applied some heat. Adhesive came off very easily as I applied some heat again and rolled it off with my finger. Cleaned them up after everything was off and stuck new badges on. Very simple mod that really cleans things up!
