Mitsubishi ASX/RVR/Outlander Sport

Hi guys,

Just wanted to share my build for the asx/rvr/outlander sport enthousiast here !
Im From Canada, 28 years hold and i'm a car enthousiast. I always liked the look of the RVR ( canadian name) that why i traded my 2009 manual lancer gts for the RVR.
I bought the car brand new as a stock SE manual in 2013 and here are the things i did to the car since then :

Mags : 18 inches DAÏ autobahn wheels
Tires : 235/50/18 Sailun Atrezzo Z4+AS

Strut Brace : DC sport
Audio : front and rear speakers with subwoofers
Lighting : Starks h11 led kit and yellow 55 w for fog lights.

Im planing to add more parts in the future ill be sure to upload the photo's.
Hope you like my build !

Welcome to our community and keep us posted with the new modifications.
You did a really nice job, congratulations. I must admit my priorities are different (e.g. I really value the 8.5" ground clearance and the tall sidewalls for the stock 16" tires) but I really like the look of your ride regardless.
Should you ever need your ETACS programmed, I am happy to do it for you as you may live close to me.

I have the first question for you and it concerns primarily Canadians (or those who have or want DRLs, daytime running lights). Your trim (with H11 halogen bulbs for low beams) uses the same bulbs for DRL (mandatory in Canada) just with lower intensity via modulation (rapidly and periodically turning on and off the 12V supply).
How did you solve the likely flickering problem with the LEDs when only the DRLs are on?
If you have not done anything the lifetime of your LED bulbs will significantly be shortened. The same problem/issue occurs when installing HIDs in systems like ours. For our fellow forum members from the States, our Canadian GT trims (with the HID headlights) come with an independent DRL that is placed in the fog light house as a second bulb to avoid this problem and preserve legality (as fog lights are only supposed to be used in fog). Go to (3:41 in this video to see it work)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKPrpRawZNQ

The differences between the fog light houses are shown in the attached images for reference. Obviously, the smaller bulb is for the DRL.

I am curious, whether EvoZant has added a capacitor to increase the time constant of the modulation (smoothing out the voltage fluctuation) or he pulled the DRL fuse and wired the DRLs as the fog lights; or he used the GT fog light house and programmed the ETACS to have DRLs from the fog house. The DRL/fog light house with the twin bulb assembly is only available as an OEM package ( MZ380376EX) and quite pricey.

EvoZant, your experience and feedback would be appreciated in this matter.

not just LED - i used to own an '05 Subaru Legacy GT that used the low beams as DRL's (just less bright) and i changed bulbs often. if you ever see them on the road, many times they have a headlight out.

bought some nice European OSRAM Silverstars, and they lasted 3 months. used cheaper ones from then on, and got about 6-12 months out of them.

Thanks. I have such modulated DRL that uses the same halogen bulb and they are just fine after 4 and a half years. In fact, I did not have a single, incandescent bulb burnt yet. Lately, we mostly drive the car on short trips doing errands in (and sometimes around) the city that involves frequent stops and restarts. HIDs and LEDs as DRL-low beam combos (even if they are equipped with capacitors or load resistors, respectively) would destined to be short lived and for this reason I dropped them as viable replacements to halogens. It might be a better scenario if one can work out the independent DRL and low beam option. I would love to hear from those ( including the OP), who did the conversion to either LED or HID, how long the bulbs did last. The honeymoon period (namely the increased light output) ends quickly if one is bothered by frequent replacements.

in my case, the projector housings supposedly did not dissipate heat well, either, so double whammy on that car.
