The New Drls Found On All New Audis (2012/3 -) - Can They Be Found Elsewhere?

Recommended Posts

Hi there -

I have a Zetec S which I've fitted with a strip of white LED DRLs under the headlamp units. The strip of lights show individual lights as seen in the DRLs of the first gen. Audi R8. I've noticed out on the road that all new Audi models have a new form of DRLs in a continuous light 'bar'. Rather than seeing individual lights, it is one strip of light. In my opinion, these look much crisper and cleaner than the ones I have installed. You can also find these 'bar DRLs' (as I call them), in various configurations, on some Mercedes and Volvos too.

Firstly (if anyone knows what the hell I'm on about), does anyone know what they're called??

Secondly, can they be bought and installed as with my previous set?

All help is welcome - I am completely stumped by this one...

They're not called 'Neon LED' strips are they? If they are, any idea of where I could get my hands on some suitable stuff...?

This sort of thing, only in white obviously.

Thanks again.

It's known as a Homogeneous LED Light Strip. LED is the source, sorry I don't know enough intimate technical detail to be able to explain further. I would say DP is on the right track with his comment.
