Not So Bright - LED "Signature Lighting"
In our MKC's we have what Lincoln calls Signature Lighting which is a curvy LED light adjacent to the HID headlights...not to be confused with the LED Daytime Running Lights in the bottom bumper. The LED DRL's are very bright (as LED's should be), but I have always felt that the LED Signature Lighting wasn't very bright at all, and during the daytime it's effect easily gets washed out - especially when it's a sunny day. At night when it is the only light turned on as you approach the car as part of the Welcome Mat experience, the Signature Lighting looks nice and bright - but that's because it's dark outside.
I just saw my first new MKX and the front lighting set-up is almost identical to the MKC except their Signature Lighting (same curvy design) is much brighter (like LED's should be) then my MKC and is VERY noticeable. Now I'm starting to wonder if there is something wrong with my Signature Lighting? I'd appreciate some feedback on your signature lighting brightness & how you think it looks during the day, especially when the brightness is compared to the DRL's.
