Need help finding good LED DRLs

I know there are some threads covering this but when I do a search for led drl I get no matches. Don't know if the search is broken or I need different keywords but for now had to start a new thread.

I'm looking for some LED DRLs that put out light similar to 6000k that are bright. I know the LEDs are not going to be as bright as halogens but since I will be giving up high beams I would like something as bright as possible.

Just wondered what others are using and what the recommendations are. Thanks.

I got a pair from DiodeDynamics that I've liked so far. Direct fit too.

We have a number of LED DRL upgrade options for the Scion FR-S. We are currently running the CREE FlashWhite LED DRLs on our Scion FR-S project car.

Our new XML2 produces 1,420 lumens (measured)

Plenty of usable output, plug and play installation, and great appearance:

+1 for HID POWERHOUSE - I absolutely love the CREE FlashWhite Ultra White LED that I purchased from them. It's just a perfect, crisp, pure white. Kenneth (@KI_ZN6) is a great guy that will get you exactly what you're looking for!

I forgot to mention that the ones I got from HID POWERHOUSE are very bright (it seems like that is what you're looking for - you can pick from multiple stages depending on the brightness you're looking for). I also picked up the same crisp white LEDs from Kenneth for my parking lights, and opted to have them disabled except to function as turn signals - if I didn't opt to have them disabled, I'm confident that I could drive around at night alone with just the parking lights and DRLs enabled, and wouldn't need to use my headlights at least 80% of the time.

Ditto on the HID Powerhouse. That with a bi-xenon projector swap is the way to go.
