Question Using 9005 LED bulb for highs/DRL (Voltage Issue?)

So I would like to use a set of LED 9005 bulbs for my DRL and high beams since I don't use my high beams anyway. The problem is that the DRL use half of the voltage of the normal high beams so it uses 6V instead of 12V which will not power the most LED bulbs. I was wondering if anyone has done this yet or knows of a way or a bulb that compensates for this. Thanks Brandon

I have been thinking of doing the same thing. Also want to use the H11 LED but not sure which one will work.

I just ordered a set of these http://www.automotivelightstore.com/...maLEDBulb.aspx to replace my highs. Guess I'm the Guinea pig so I'll report back once I give them a try. It says that they are direct plug and play and can be used for DRL so hopefully their advertising is correct.

Keep us posted. Much appreciated. If you could posted some pictures of the DRL on and high beam on that would be great too. Thanks

Okay so the plasma LED 9005 bulbs work perfect as Highs and DRL. I still need to get some pics to post. The turns I got from ACC also work perfectly. I was impressed the DRLs work and no error message on the EVIC either.
