I have been most interested in the way these DRL's were fitted. My accessories dealer did not really try to explain how the "Ring" Audi-type of lights could be tidily fitted. Your thread has been a great help. The compact rectangular block of LED's as DRL's cant't be found a simple home on the front of my Mk 6.5 Fiesta, but they looked great on a new big Skoda I saw today, in full daylight. Just what is needed here in the top-end of Scotland. I have fitted pricy PIAA led sidelights (H520's), to get seen easily without dragging down the battery power, which has been happening with the heavy use of the heated front screen demist element, so I don't want to run the headlights thro' the day. ( also top-price PIAA H303's )
Next move is 35 watt Bi-Xenon H4 HID conversion ;-- that will save power.
P.S., DRL's have to switch off automatically by relay, when the sidelights or main lights are switched on ;-- glare to oncoming drivers is the excuse, but some DRL units don't shine forwards, but are concealed, and shine upwards off reflectors to get beamed forwards. I have seen these advertised as metal bodied, with mineral glass lenses.
