A while back I had HID's installed in my 2005 Outback XT Limited. Daytime running lights disabled.

I initially told the installer I wanted the DRL enabled, so he ordered some additional parts.

It's been a while, and I kind of got used to not having the DRL. Just didn't miss them.

I dropped the car off for some other odds & ends (cabin air filter, Rally Armor mud flaps) and to have the DRL enabled.

Got the call tonight that it's all done -- "bypass" complete.

Now I'm starting to have second-thoughts about the DRL. Seems like they will just wear out my HID's prematurely. I very seldom drive at night, so the HID's would probably last "forever" with DRL being enabled.
