Hi Guys,

Im considering buying some of the daytime running lights.

Which are the best ones to go for and where is the best place to put them on a MK7 Fiesta (pics of anybody who has done it)

Cheers

i like the car with the lights on. Is there no other way to connect them though as i wouldnt want them with my side light turned on, as i dont want to change the colour of the bulbs.

they are linked up to my sidelights, but i aint too sure about any other way... if you buy the expensive block ones that on the grill they link to the battery i think

ok then. iv just gone a bought a hynes manual and been looking through it until i got to the fuse box. It turns out there is a fuse for "daytime running lights" (iv got the mk6.5 btw)so there might be a way to do it through that. Also my dads an electrision so he said there is probably a way to hook it up to the ignition so you dont need any other lights on for it to work. so im going to order them tonight so hopfully they will arive near the end of the week.

I've just bought some too, and some red ones (just to be tricky!!) Is there any way they can be connected to the power [into] the starter motor? so when you start it, they come on? Or does anyone know of the roof ambient lights? as these are always on, as the other two only work with your lights!

Oh, and can I say, I'm a little scared of electricity!
