Guys,

Why is it that the daylight Driving lights still is Yellow when I replaced the Stock bulbs with the (9005CB) or even the Bright White Sylvania's?? I ended up returning the Sylvania's because it did not make any difference.... I also looked at the head lamp itself and it's all clear.

Now why is that?

The reason is I'd like to swap out the ugly yellow driving lights to clear.

Tell me if I have to do something to make that happen.

Thanks!

The reason they appear yellow is that they are run at a lower wattage. The bulbs do not heat to their full potential and as a result have a lower K-temp. Not much you can do about it unfortunately.
