I have noticed that when I turn on my lights, the corners turn on. but they are really really dim, they get bright when it blinks, but otherwise they are dim??? I have seen pics with the corners bright......?

The corners do that because the bulb in them is a dual filament bulb. One stage of the bulb is the constant(dim), then the 2nd stage of the bulb is the bright part when the bulb flashes. Most times when you upgrade corners to something clear, the bulb shines brighter, especially on corners like mine(sonar) where the lens is completely clear and not opaque like the other lenses.

I've put a piece of tape over one of the 2 contactors on the bulb so it only blinks no more dim or yellow running lights I don't know about you guy but I think is pretty cool look...... :rock

i think fog lights reduce visibility in NON-fog conditions
My HID fogs are brighter then my old stock lows and most of the cars on the road. Maybe because the way I fitted the D2S in the H1 socket about 1/2 inch back from the OEM H1 position.

You can just cut the wire that makes the corner light run constantly instead of covering a filament.
