But doc, that is how the OE Set up is (at least in most of the cars I have known/Driven)

The OE Fog lamps light up ONLY WHEN the headlight Switch is on "Parking" light position. They remain off irrespective of the Fog light switch's position if the Headlight Switch is on OFF Position.

So ideally, these Fog lights do come on even without the Headlights on.

Do the DRLs have a dimming function? They should automatically have their brightness reduced when parking lamps / headlamps are turned on.
Quoting my own response above. DRLs are on all the times while the Ignition is ON except when the headlight switch is turned to Parking position.

That means, DRLs go off whenever Parking lights are headlights are on. That function serves the purpose and logic of a DRL that it should be used strictly as a DRL (and during the day).

In other words, DRLs + Fog Lamps do not function together and nor do the DRLs light up if headlights (Low or High) are on too.

Thanks. But I am not aware of any ideal wiring setups. As Parag has mentioned, this is how it is in all my cars and is a manufacturer convention at least in Suzuki. Not sure if there are other conventions with other manufacturers.

Thanks for clarifying Parag.

If you would call it that way, then yes. I do use them in place of headlights inside the city since they do a great job in throwing light far, low and wide, and use headlights only in dark stretches or open roads since there is no point in having lights that will reflect off cars ahead of you.

Regarding the DRL thing, Parag had already posted the logic chart, and it is the same as what I have. They dont turn on in the night once the pilot lamps are on.

Sorry for the back to back posts, but had been wanting to post this from sometime, but due to a busy work schedule I couldnt upload. Here are some pictures showing the lumination offered. This will give a better idea than the pictures of my parking area

These are exposure locked pictures to give a fair comparison of the lights with and without the fog lights.

Fog light only

Low beam with and without FL

High beam with and without FL

Seeing the kind of output of the 16W LEDs, I find the 35W H8s on my SX4 to be pathetic. Hence planning to swap them with the same setup too.

Hi Audioholic,

Perfect thread and fog lamps with DRL i was looking for. Your thread goes live last year though at that time i was not the member of this group. So accept my heartfelt thanks now for taking the initiative and coming up with such a useful DIY. I too came across Osram DRL Fog lamps but spending that much doesn't makes sense for me.
Now i have almost zeroed on the same product though i asked the seller whether fog lights will be compatible with the New MS Baleno or not. He was not sure which i think due to the fact that Baleno is relatively a new product in Europe and needs to be launched in many other european countries. Still i shared few pics with him which i found on some forum which shows the fog lights are compatible and the same being sold by the seller. After that he reluctantly said that it would be compatible.
Still before i go forward could you please have a look and confirm me the same.

Firstly, from a long time, MS has adapted a uniform design for the fog lights right from the days of the Swift and SX4 till the Celerio and Ciaz and S-Cross. Only the brezza comes with a different kind of fog lights which are of poor design and quality. My bet is that the Baleno still comes with the uniform design as well and only the brezza is an exception.

Two things to be considered are the diameter of the assembly and the mounting option. Check how your cars fog light mounting is and then check the same with the seller. Usually its a 3 or 4 hole mount provided in the bumper where the fog light is screwed into position. If these are present then the product will fit your car. In case you are located somewhere in South Bangalore, I have a spare set of lights with me and you can come and try it in case you arent confident. I haven't seen the engine bay of the Baleno in person anytime so cannot give you an assurance of whether the product is compatible or not.

Thank you for your support.
I'm located in Indiranagar and will be travelling to whitefield due to some work which would not take much of my time. Can you please PM me your location and availability.
