Has anyone replaced their awful yellow DRLs with nice bright LEDs? I have a 2017 GT.

I'm looking at this set below from Blingworks, but I'm concerned about the "Not CANbus ready" line.

Does not apply to me as I have an 18 but worth your time to compare to Diode Dynamics offerings. They are now sold in Australia by Hoglights who are at Kedron. I can vouch for Diode Dynamics as I used their's for my interiors. At the time Blingworks were not giving me enough specification to compare. Blingworks were not as high a wattage I know that.

I went the whole kit with Blingworks a few year back, https://www.blingworkauto.com.au/ford-fm-mustang-gt-ecoboost-led-upgrade-package~358 only issue was the ridiculously small hands needed for the fog light / running light change.
Later I've added the Diode Dynamic, side markers and multicolored tribar front lights via a dealer in Sydney. No issues with either option after years of daily use and just passed NSW rego check.

Thanks guys for that info. Blingworks confirmed that the "Not CANbus ready" line actually means the lamps are fine for the 17 GT because the lighting system is apparently not part of the CANbus system.
Cheers
