I'm doing the 2017 bumper upgrade on my 2013 and got the OLM ones for Xmas. I had fog lights, but I'm not putting them back in...

Forgive me if this is a dumb question...I know nothing about wiring or electrical type stuff

Is it possible to hook the vertical DRL's up to the fog light wiring?

Im thinking of getting these soon. What is the best way to install them? If you ground the negative and then just fuse splice them into the DRL fuse, would they turn on and off with the boomerang DRLs? What is the switch they come with for then?

Then I took the power wire from the harness into the cabin and used a fuse tap to tap it into the DRL fuse which is under the steering wheel. It's a 90% solution. The DRLs don't function exactly like the normal boomerangs. The JDM DRLs only run when the engine is running. and don't turn off with the hand brake.

If you want exactly the same behavior as the boomerang DRLs. You would ground wire in similar way as above. Then tap the power into the headlight wire that powers the DRLs. I didn't want to do this because the headlight wiring is not exposed. So you would have to cut open wiring loom.

If you need more detail let me know.

Thanks for the information. I plan to get the JDM Kit which comes with all the harness and turn on/off switch (Ft86speedfactory $400)
I also got the interior panel and will mount it as the Japanese version.
Based on your description, do you have /use the switch that comes together with the kit?
Do you know whether the 2018/2019 have a prewiring to install the kit directly ?
Last question, does it to take out the bumper?
