By the way, install hopefully happening today. Cars and coffee tomorrow locally and next weekend at the Porsche dealership I go to in Raleigh. Locally(lots of young guys and modded cars) I think people will like them...at the dealership I will probably be banned for modding my car so much
good luck.. post some pics.

They are Adv1. no spacers, custom fitment. I think Adv is out of business now actually..

I like them, but would go HRE if I were you. I've had them and never an issue.

Absolutely, an older friend of mine has a 991.1 GT3RS and he is coming with me. There is a stretch of highway on the way to the event this Saturday and I am begging him to do a 30 mph pull with me. would make for a fun video

Did you ever get your DRLs installed? I am considering the same and wondering your thoughts on the insall, how they have been working and how the look? Any pics?

I don’t think the 997.2 turbo cars have fog lights like the 997.1 cars. The lower, outboard lights are LED DRLs.

Scattered thought process:
- .1 fogs must be much more expensive than silly .2 due to design
- I always enjoyed the idea of DRL due to safety statistics
- Driving around 24/7 with what was meant to be fog-lights and thinking it looks better than LED strip is weird to me...
- Tapping into the harness is a no no
- I want DRLs and I want them to be LED and not in the fog light location nor to be fog lights

Solution: I buy mid-grade D2S bulbs for my 997 that I donít care about yet their lumen output is much higher than OEM... and I drive around with headlights on all the time.... exactly what I did.

I will post some later. I did get them installed, I love them and they are amazing. Between the LED tails, the DRL, and the LED fogs I couldn't be more happy with the look of my car. Really modernized the look without looking cheap at all.

Correct, 997.2 is LED fogs, and they are a plug and play for the 997.1

Did not tap into the wiring harness, almost exactly followed the Agency Power directions and just used an extra spot in the foot well. .2 is more expensive than .1 fogs. My LED DRL strip is always sexy, I mean always on. The fogs only come on when I pull the switch out

Nicely done! Also, I thought.1 had real projectors where .2 were just halogen like design. Oh well.

Are they fogs in the 997.2, or just DRLs? I think just DRLs in the 997.2, even though they act as LED fogs when installed in a 997.1. See what I mean?

I look forward to the pics. I assume you ended up doing it on your own? Did you have to take the front bumper off for the DRL conversion? Do you have to remove the bumper for the fogs too? Did extreme motor cars provide adequate instructions? Thanks

Haha thanks! I am a huge fan. I love the XDiavel, but sadly sold the streetfighter that's right behind it. And that is 205, I don't know why there is weight on that bar neither my roommate or I use the garage gym set up I rather workout on base during lunch or go to a normal gym on the weekends. Last time I used that was like a year ago, should probably break it down to make more room.
