DRLs (Daytime Running Lights)


Hi Guys,

I finally found a product which can be called a true DRL (Daytime Running Lights) and there are perfect bright LEDs for the front of the car.

They are 28cm LED strips that lok like this and can be easily stuck on any car:

Nice Jalal very nice.
I was going to ask why didn't you stick them under the headlights then I seen the night shot and understood. Either that or you're going for the HSV look.
Can you notice the strips without them on id the day light or did you stick them over the black plastic?

We'll have to call you MR LED now.

Re: DRLs (Daytime Running Lights)


Thanks Tony,

Considering I already have LEDs at the top in the headlights, locating the DRLs at the bottom seemed like the most logical place and the lower black section of the bumper masks the black LED strips quite nicely, so they don't stand out that much at all.

The wire is being fed behind the wheel arch and up into the engine bay.

Hi Scot,

Got them imported from a UK seller on eBay (maxautos2010). They cost about $30 bucks (including shipping) and they arrived to me within 4 days!

For simplicity, I extended the wiring to reach the parkers socket in the engine bay and spliced the wiring there, but I am thinking of having them run on ignition, so they can be lit by themselves all the time.

I just ordered 1 more set for my Merc emoticon

I see them on all sorts of cars lit up all the time (day and night) and I reckon as long as they are white (not blue), we'll be fine. I didn't find anything about LED strips on the ADR.

Re:


Hey Jalal,

Do you need any special wiring i.e ballast, relay etc or can the just piggy back straight off the parker lights?

Re:


Cool, sound like an easy cheap mod that will make the car stand out just that bit more.

My only concern of course would be how will they hold up doing river crossings and hitting water at a reasonable pace.

How are they attached, just double sided tape or are they screwed or zip tied on?

Have ordered a set anyway.
