thanks for the clarification guys, I've amended the thread now.

Was thinking of these lux but to be honest the one pic straight on makes them hard to tell the AEs are on at all. Don't really car about dusk etc. since my headlights come on automatically anyway.

If I get around to it, probably order from someone I can return them to if not happy. Pretty sure most f these vendors have very restrictive return policies.
you can tell they are on for sure during broad daylight but it is just less attention-grabbing than OEM yellow halogens or amber LEDs because it contrasts more to the color temperature of daylight. Since these LEDs are pure white 6000k, this is as good as it gets for plug and play solutions, unless you get the Amber variant of the DTECs.

nope, different bulb design. LUX makes a pair for LCI halogen
