After reviewing the various LED product upgrades available, I plan on waiting until Diode Dynamics has tested and prepared products for the 2019 Ascent. However, Diode Dynamics states on their website that their LEDs don’t support DRL functionality, which for a Subaru is a potential issue if you want to replace the high beam bulb. Anyone find a high beam LED replacement bulb that does support DRL operation? Thanks

The high beams do not serve as the DRLs. The DRL is a separate LED bulb.

I guess you’re right about this. I made an assumption that the DRLs were the high beam bulbs at reduced voltage like they are on my 2015 Forester and 2016 Crosstrek Limiteds, but it makes sense that the LED peripheral lights on the edge of of the headlight assembly on my Premium serve that function, which negates the basic question of this thread.

Doh! LOL. I totally looked over that. I have a Limited and was focused on the difference in high beams between Limited/Touring and Base/Premium trims. I completely overlooked the C-shaped DRLs on Subarus these days. Duh!
