I just replaced the stock drl bulbs on my 2013 mr with LEDs from superbrightleds.com. I noticed that when I start the car, the drls sometimes have issues with turning on. I have to hit the headlight in order for the bulb to turn on. Anyone have any suggestions? Any info is appreciated

I would avoid using any LEDs DRL on EVO. I have tried a few different ones and they all failed very quickly. Flickering is a common problem. Just replace them with regular bulb in any color/brightness configuration in 1156 format.

You'll need to run some sort of capacitor to compensate for the DRL PWM. Otherwise "fast switching" lights like LEDs and HIDs will do the same.

DRL system is "faking" a 9v signal luminosity by switching the 12v bulb on and off constantly. Incandescent bulbs don't reveal a flicker because they don't create light like a HID or LED does.
