    Default DRLs REFITTED.

    Refitted my daytime running lights today in the fog grilles, and put inline fuse in the cig tray to turn off when lights are on, look far better IMO.

    It looks like you've done a good job and if you like them then that's the main thing. I think the thing that's putting me off is that they look obviously aftermarket. If there was a way of making them look more integrated and more of a factory fit then I think they'd be good.

    They're always gonna look aftermarket on the vec I think mate wherever you put them, never used the fogs on my previous sri so preferred to put drls in place.

    I think you're right. I did see somewhere some headlight units with them built in and the facelift ones of them looked good, I don't think they suit the preface no matter where you put them. But as long as people are happy with their own cars then it's nice ot have so much variety amongst the cars on ehre and always interesting to see people doing new things.

    Look very good, there are still a lot of cars that have completely separate DRL's, look at the Fiat 500,
