    It definitely killed my excitement on getting started with the mod but im getting the missing parts in a day so i cant really complain.

    Ever take a look at the installation instructions for driving lamps for the Discovery 4/LR4? They're so simple that they're insanely impossible to discern!

    When that happens you may not get instructions at all.

    Talk about a lonely f'ing world.

    Finally got the lights installed. It took me less than an hour to get the wiring done but took me more than three hours to cut the bumper and fit the bezels and the lights. Land Rover definitely didn't make it easy to do the installation.
    Thanks to AwfAxis for helping me figure out the wiring. His instructions made the wiring a lot easier and was able to defeat the factory settings.
    Here is the final pic. I will post more soon. For now I need a good night sleep and recover from my back pain.

    Fresh maker can you take a pic in direct sunlight and post it please? I would really like to see how bright the angel eyes LEDs around the headlights are and the drl strips on the bottom before I invest in them. Thank you Mark

    Mark,

    I will snap a picture in the sun today but the LED's on the headlights are not bright in sunlight. You can barely notice them. They stand out more in the shade or at night. The LED DRL's on the other hand is as bright as what you might have seen in any of the newer cars like Mercedes or Porsche. They are visible even under direct sunlight.

    typed this and will type it again... the headlight LEDs are pure vanity. they are not DRLs. not nearly bright enough like these accessory DRL LEDs by LR. they're as bright as any other factory DRL LED from other makes.

    I may need to seriously invest in these. If they are as bright hyper/white like what is on the Benz's then I'm in.

    Here is a pic in direct sunlight. It's might not look like the DRLs are bright in the picture but I assure you they are. As I said on my last post the headlight LEDs are barely visible since they weren't meant to be DRLs.
