Re: My DRL'S

Nice! I think they'd look better in with the fog vent, but then the light you'd get would be compromised. Nice nevertheless

Re: My DRL'S

They do not appear to be DRL compliant, must go off or dim when headlamps are on.

Are they correctly 'E' marked

So why call them DRLs then? They look more like styling lights.

Not getting fickly, just making sure OP knows they've not got DRLs, just styling lamps, don't want them being ripped off thinking they've the real mccoy when they haven't.

Re: My DRL'S

Ahh fair enough, but IMO they look enough like DRLs to call them that even if they only come on at night. So maybe they are NRLs

xlTomm I still dont get why you didn't stick them on the fog light trim. You say you cant but why not?

Are they legal then? I really hope not, fog lights are enough of a pain at night without these things popping up everywhere (not intended to be a rant at the op btw).

If not correctly 'E' marked, and if they are correctly 'E' marked as DRls they're not wired up to operate in conjunction with DRL regs so won't conform to construction of use / Lighting regs.

I would hazzard a guess that they arn't road legal probably fall under the same police mans opinion of under car neons

even the small position marker lights on a large trailer or caravan have to be (e) marked
