If you want the truely (factory looking) brightness, you need to pay over £50, anything less than that and its just going to be a little less bright (check my bus build thread for an example of the ones I had). I didnt mind them, I didnt expect them to be as strong output as headlights though.

yes I am beginning to realise I am going to either need to pay over the odds or, build something myself using individual side light lamps, which, I think may be possible ;)

Easy enough, just buy a DRL control relay from ebay about a tenner, you can then wire the positive and negative into the sidelight feeds, then they will come on as sidelight DRL's

I have used one set in the boot, superb light for the boot :) One set I am trying to return as they sold them as ALUMINIUM HOUSINGS when in fact they are cheap plastic and i am sure they are 24v versions. Another set is lying in the garage, welcome to them and another set binned, they were utterly useless!! The ones here are these:

utterly pointless really but welcome to them if you want?

Well here is 2 of the DRL's fitted into the boot, superb, these are the best of a bad bunch but due to them being rigid and having poor sticky tape they are relegated to the boot!!! These are actually glued on with silicon!

Also fitted the parking sensors, so mostly done now. One set of new DRL's still to come :)

I stand corrected. \£34, these come with a relay as well for turning them off when headlights are on. May miss that off unless they dazzle.

Worth every penny! Fit in perfectly as well. Into the lower front grill with a mm to spare :) Very happy. Beats the hell out of ebay!
