Yeah I know but I was asking if they would come on ALL the time with this mod? Will the dash somehow know it is the DRL's and not come on?

Mine is an 08 Titanium, which I assume is the MK2.5 but the dash lights definitely come on with the ignition, I mostly have the lights set to auto, the dash lights appear to auto-dim, in other words the darker it is the brighter they are.

Really interested in the DRL mod with the relay, has anyone else had any luck with this?

Has anyone tried the Ring Automotive DRL solutions you can pick up online or at Halfords? Not sure if they do anything that will look halfway decent on a Focus?

My car has xenon lights, which wire do I need to do this mod?

In the write up by Pidu it says "For cars with xenon lights use standard wire, abt 0,75 square mm"

Would something like this do? http://uk.rs-online....-cable/7210598/

European Union Directive 2008/89/EC requires all passenger cars and small delivery vans first type approved on or after 7 February 2011 in the EU to come equipped with daytime running lights. [12][13][14] The mandate will extend to trucks and buses in August 2012. [15] Functional piggybacking, such as operating the headlamps or front turn signals or fog lamps as DRLs, is not permitted; [16] the EU Directive requires functionally specific daytime running lamps compliant with ECE Regulation 87 and mounted to the vehicle in accord with ECE Regulation 48. [17] DRLs compliant with R87 emit white light of between 400 and 1200 candela.
