Yeah I think I wrote about that. It's pure physics. The 4-5k light is percieved just as daylight by our eyes, which means unless the light source is considerably brighter, you do not see them in the daylight as you would see yellowish lights with even less luminance.
Anyway, it's a matter of personal choice of course. The LED's are absolutely beautiful at dusk/dawn, on rainy days, in the shade. But they're barely visible in sunlight on a bright day. So one has to choose what's best for his car.
