    DRLs should be turned off when side lights are on.

    See this post, this is what the previous owner did to my car.

    LED strip won't flicker if wired to the boot lights, I did mine about a month ago. I just pulled the light out and then disconnected if from the connections, when you do this you should see a hole I just stripped back enough cable to feed though the hole and twist, when you plug the light back in it makes the connection tight. Job done took me about 10 mins.

    Fit a pot to the circuit to turn the light level down and a kill switch to turn them off.

    cheers for the info guys, i had drl's on my 02TT and got pulled once but they were curious as to what they were. they even liked them but i want some merc style lights for my vec c and thought i would see if they would flicker. my TT had leds so didnt flicker but i dont want to fit them to find they strobe for a while after. which is the best way to wire drls in to stop the flicker, can they be done easily? jay
