Exclamation Gauging interest in Plug n Play option for BRZ Boomerang to turn ON with DRLs....

Disclaimer: This is a community service on a limited run, not a business opportunity.

There is a great DIY tutorial written by @Lithium on how to powerfeed the BRZ headlight boomerangs to be on with the DRLs. It's very well written and he has agreed to make a PnP option for the average joe that does not want to solder cables.. (e. g. me....). The tutorial.... http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=53111

THE OPTIONS:

Sorry it took so long to chime in guys. I want to address a few of the questions associated with what I'm going to produce. This will be 100% Plug and Play. You will be able to remove this system completely and revert back to stock. You will not have to cut a single wire. I have yet to do all my homework but I predict these harnesses will be inline with the normal headlight assembly and/or fuse panel. There will be three different products created in this order.

Stage 1
*stock behavior - DRLs will be off while headlights are on.
*Lithium Behavior - DRLs will always be on full brightness

Stage2
*Pulse Behavior - DRLs will be full brightness while headlights are off. Once Headlights are on the DRLs will stay on but dim (not sure if I will make it adjustable or set to a standard PWM frequency.)

I cant discuss exact pricing at this point but I can certainly speculate. I know for a fact that the Lithium and stock Behavior will be the cheapest as they don't require pulse width modulation. All in all I believe the factory connections that we require to make this plug and play will be the majority of the expense. I hope to provide the stock and lithium behavior PnP harnesses for $50-100 dollars and the Pulse Behavior for $80-130 dollars. I hope to have exact pricing once I nail down a good source on our factory connections. I appreciate everyone's interest in this modification and I'm more than happy to help out, don't hesitate to ask any questions or give suggestions.


This thread is for anyone genuinely interested to buy this at a fair price. Please reply to the thread if really interested to be added to the list and if you want DRLs to keep stock behavior (turn OFF with Headlights) OR custom (turn ON with Headlights). Thanks.


Thanks to @Diode Dynamics for the updated list.

I don't think dimmed will be an option.

@Lithium can respond to that..

I think he said it will be an option if I interpreted this correctly. Unless he just meant stock and the "on with headlights" DRL behavior.

I buy. Stock behavior

I would do the headlight on but having the fog light on with drl's seems too much

I put my parking lights on to get the boomerang/DRL's on. So the difference will be no sidemarker lights/tail lights on, while the DRL/Rang lights go on?

the difference will be you can leave your lights in auto all the time, and on daytime, the boomerang will light up without your parking lights, sidemarkers and instrument cluster lighting up.

I'll let @Lithium decide that. I can only think that as the number of potential buyers increase, the price of each unit can go down......

I expect a fair price on it, knowing we will be using his spare time, getting materials/ etc. Maybe after seeing the interest in a few days he can come up with a $$ figure..
