    Engine : 2.2 dti


    Default drls

    i know a lot of people dont like drls, but for those who do, can anyone help.
    i have a preface and i want to put them next to the fogs in the recess. i gather from a bit of research i need 10cm ish units.
    looking on ebay is difficult as you cant see how bright they actually are. so what have people got, pics would be useful and any links. id love the phillips 4led ones but not for £60

    Hi, just wondering if you knew that you can probably have your programmed so that your foglamps become DRL's until you swtch on the main lamps, or use your foglamps actually as foglamps using the switch, otherwise they operate in a dimmed down manner as soon as you start your engine.
    As said, just a thought, having done this on my preface Gsi.
    Cheers

    Not sure if you mean programming foglamps ? If you do, then I'm sorry but as far as I know, it isn't an option on the facelift to use foglamps like that, only dipped beam or sidelights from what I recall.

    Cheers

    No. Only the half-can models can have the fogs programmed as DRL's

    You mean in this recess where the Ali is?



    Think its up to 13/14cm wide. There's loads of 1cm x 10cm+ on eBay if prepared to wait from china, to be fair 4 or 6 LEDs the brightness is gonna be similar as LEDs, I wouldn't worry about that, just get ones that fit, and far enough back that the may look "standard"...

    Its not an idea as such, but how the car came from the factory, just the same as how you can turn off DRL on Audi's at the dealer. The system is built in, and as Woody said, the fogs come on but dimmer with the engine, if you were to turn on your sidelights or headlights the DRL's deactivate and the fogs return to the stock factory setting and power output.

    A good set of bulbs also help with the colour. Think VW DRL's but not yellow. This is mine with DRL activated and Mtec bulbs fitted. Granted, the pics do make the light look ice white than in life but there not yellow but white.

    Note there are no sidelights on
