Xtec Upgrade For Drl

I can imagine that making the car look a lot more tatty in my opinion, depending what colour your car is I guess. From what I can see if looks like it will be noticeable whilst stationary parked and your ignition off or parked whilst away from the vehicle. But it would be down to personal preference at the end of the day; are they even road legal?

There horrendous, make an awful attempt at upgrading the drl. I learnt the hard way. In my opinion there too tight to go in the bulb hole and require trimming to fit the bulb and after all that fiddling the light output is rubbish. Not worth the money or time.

I'd be careful before you go buying them at £195 a side, there not a straight swap from what I know. Require different loom plugs and programming I think ? due to the led set having dimming led as the sidelights and not 501 bulbs like ours, but how correct it is I couldn't tell you.

Looked into it myself but ended up putting it back due to hearing it wasn't a straight swap.

Yeah I agree with Nathan, I looked into doing this and almost ordered the parts but after speaking to 2 different ford dealerships they were not even sure they could swap them. As said it needs re- programming and they wanted a minimum of £100 to do so to try doing it. Plus the LED strips fail a lot (there have been reports on here) so you could end up burning a lot of cash doing this. Someone on here swapped his ZS units with the LED units from his ST and it didn't work at all.

The drls on my new 63 plate gave up after 2 months getting it fixed under warranty now after finding time to take it back to garage.

Hi all, I have a 64 plate Zetec S. Has anyone found out how straight forward it is to change the standard DRL's to LED's. Do you just need the wiring loom plug and its plug and play or is it more complex than that? The standard DRL's look rubbish compared to the LED's. All Ford have told me is that the LED DRL's usually come factory fitted and would cost something £400 to potentially change to the LED DRL's because of re-programming and wiring?! not paying that!
