    Default Daytime running lights (DRL) - which ones suit best?

    Hi people

    I'm talking about facelift model.

    I'm probably not the first one who faces this question. Have anyone of you tried to fit these LED's in the plastic cover gap next to fog lights? This is where I'm hoping to fit, but dimensions of this gap are pretty awkward and different to those lights available on eBay. Have you got any particular idea of which ones would suit best in that spot? I was thinking of few options for now:

    That depends on the markings...

    RL -Runninglights (have to be turned off when normal light is on)
    A - Marking lights

    If the DRL have both they only need to Dim down

    You can actually get some to put where the foglights is (so they are round), so they look OEM fitted..

    (i have just order some round to mine, to put next to my foglights)

    you want DRL's on a vec just get them a activated by tech2. Sure it can be done with sidelights, headlights or front foglights.
