    Hi everyone,
    Just got my first SHO a couple months ago and I'm loving the hell out of it. I never realized how fun a Taurus could be. I Haven't done a lot to it yet but I want to continually upgrade it. So far just 20% tint all around and I put some winter wheels and tires on it. Verde AX 19x8.5 black.

    I apologize if this is the wrong place to ask this question, but I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the Drive Bright DRLs (http://drivebright.com/home/shop/fo...standard-black-with-built-in-led-turn-signal/). Do they seem like a quality product? Any issues for anyone that's had them installed for a longer period of time? Also wondering if there would be any factory warranty issues with installing these. Any experiences would be helpful or a direct to an existing thread about them as I haven't been able to find one.

    Thanks!
    Looking forward to becoming part of the community.

    ^^^+1 on the Drive Bright DRLs. My initial set hyper flashed the turn signal anytime the voltage was above say 13.5v. Called Drive Bright about the problem and they had a new module at my house 2 days later with no bullshit and no questions asked (GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE). I haven't had any issues with the new module and they look great. You get the auto dimming of the DRL function by tying a trigger wire to your headlight circuit if you want (you have a choice to hook up for auto dim operation and for turn signal operation depending on how you want them to work). I went a different route and put a hidden easy accessible micro switch on the auto dim trigger wire so I can choose if I want to run them at full or reduced intensity with the headlamps turned on by just toggling the switch.

    Quick question, doesn't anyone know what size hose clamps I need for the BOV hoses? I'm trying to reset everything to stock before I take my car in to the dealer. Lost my hose clamps somehow...

    Looks like 1 3/8 inch.... that's with it uncompressed.. when you compress the tabs it expands to about 1 5/8 inch...

    Any clamp will do. It's just holding on the hoses... you could get away with a black zip tie..

    Not bad... costs almost that much just for the oil and filter.

    Yeah, I was happy with it! And it comes with tire rotation, so why not! They didn't put a new sticker on the window tho, how many miles can I do before I need to change the oil again?

    If you are tuned, I would recommend every 3K as dictated by severe duty maintenance I believe... It's how often I change mine, although, I only put MAYBE 3K a year on mine..

    Raced one the new Buick Regals, the souped up ones. He didn't stand a chance. Had him 3 car lengths by the time I got to 80, felt bad for the kid. He gave me props though.
