Hi I've seen the drl lights preee has on his mk2.5 focus ,there great but i can't afford 100 quid plus my Mrs would stab me Lol, so has anyone got any off ebay ? Are they any good ,I know I need ones that are E marked , They look ok and I've seen a few pairs that are slim so I could fit them just above the fog lights.

Have something to contribute?

I have not seen any slim line ones that would fit above the fog light. Alot of the ones on Ebay don't actually say if they are Emarked or not.
Second thing to look out for is the direction they are angled at , if you found a slim line one to fit , they would not be pointing forward and would spray the light out towards the sides.This would be ok if you had them go off with side lights and not use them at night.

You are wise to get some with a controller unit that regulates the power to them.

I've just received a set of DRL's with integrated LED indicators... I've powered them up, and the white light is overridden by the indicator (audi style) section when activated... I'm hoping to fit them this coming thurday if the weather holds out... I'll report back here with piccies etc if the fitting turns out ok... The lights were CHEAP so i'm not expecting that much from them really, but we'll see...

I'll put you out of your misery then Colin! B)

Now to start off with... I've fitted these lights below the bumper, but above the atermarket splitter (the bumper is an ST item) The lights fill the space between splitter and bumper pretty well, and despite the lights "cheapness", they seem pretty fliipin alright! B)

Oh, and they are E-marked too ;)

I've kept the wiring in simple... The "white" light is straight in to the sidelights circuit...The orange (indicator) section, directly in to the relevent indicator circuits.

There are no fancy interfaces, the lights themselves contain all the relevent circuitry... The indicators, (when activated) overides the DRL on that particular light as the indicators flash.

( I did a small video of the lights in action, but i deleted it before i uploaded it to photobucket,as the video wasn't an accurate portrayal of how the lights actually worked... The integrated indicators are LED, whereas the factory indicators are still filament bulbs, so the LED's operate slightly "quicker" than the factory indicators. In real life the timing can only just be made out, in the vid, it was a mile out! I'll do a short updated vid when i've installed some LED indicator bulbs in the Factory headlights so everything is in sync)

I'll let the piccies do the talking now....

Sidelights on (so DRL's on also)

Posted Image

Sidelights still on, but with indicator flashing,so the DRL indicator "takes over" the white light....

Posted Image

The DRL indicator still works with the sidelights off also (in other words, the white DRL's don't HAVE to be lit for the indicator section to operate)

Quite nifty i think,and quite eyecatching (without being "in your face") B)

they look brilliant, although I would have tried to incorporate them into the ST fog grill, would make it more 'factory like' ^_^

Under £20.00 and clearly a good addition, very good find, and thanks for sharing the link, I am strangely tempted by them, just a shame about the funds!

UK Legal Requirements :

Height above the ground must be 250mm and a maximum of 1500mm

source:

http://www.halfords....ment/242326.pdf

Just an observation [don't shoot the messenger] yours don't appear to conform to the legal requirement.

When I was looking into fitting something similar I found height wise I was OK. But fell foul of the requirement that they needed to be a minimum of 400mm apart. So in the end, not wanting to risk invalidating my insurance cover I decided to not bother.

Have something to contribute?
