My New Elantra Trophy 2014 - Light-guides and Touchscreen Brightness?

Hey there Elantra Forum!

I just picked up my new 2014 Elantra Trohy and I'm absolutely in love with it.

If I could ask a couple of quick questions of the community though...

I was under the impression that the thick white plastic strips that encircle the headlamps were DRL light-guides, however they don't illuminate and appear to be there just to make the car look angry. Is there any way to actually install some bulbs in this to allow it to function the way it appears it should? I don't want to replace the entire light cluster with something aftermarket; I saw a prototype video for the car and these did illuminate. Very strange that they seem to be inert.

Secondly, the touch-screen seems to not have any kind of backlight which makes it literally impossible to see during the day. Is this like that for everyone or has the backlight failed in mine?

Thank you and best regards,
