If the wires are cut then it will be a problem. DRL's are direct fitment that requires no cutting of the wires. Just make sure that they do it properly.

Sounds fair, but in such case how do they link it to ignition or the parking light switch?

Both will work. I was given the option to connect it to the ignition for opted for the parking light switch. Moreover, the installer will know all latest kits are plug n play devices and the stock wires need not be cut.

Got the Telefunken DRLs installed on my Zen today. Went for wipers and boy were these tempting.

Well, money spent on the car is always justified, isn't it..

Got these for 3600 with fitting. Have connected them to the parking lights.

Planning for a DRL on the Manza, problem is there is an OEM fog lamp (not that i mind). I was planning on the L-shaped design to complement the front looks somewhat, so need a vote on which of the drls will look good as per the mock up photo below.

Any ideas about the current offline market price? I was quoted about 3.5k for some unknown brand, thatís daylight robbery.

You are using the DRL for the exactly opposite purpose they are meant for. DRL should automatically switch off the moment headlamps are turned on.

Correct Anshuman. I didn't want them on all the time, so decided to connect them to my parking lights. These lights if connected as per diagram, will dim when the parking lights are switched on and not switch off.

Anyone knows a shop where the prices might be decent.

Recently got the DRL's fitted on my Honda City type 2.
Got them from S&S.

I have got them connected to a switch from which they can be switched ON/OFF whenever I want instead of connecting it to the ignition and it getting switched off whenever the headlights are switched on.

Does anybody know whether the DRLs void the warranty on the car? I am thinking of getting them fitted (LED4).
Is there any cutting of wires required?

I did not understand this? If what you have are original Philips DRL then you don't need a switch and no wiring to ignition and all.

The philips DRL's are connected directly to the battery with no other connection. The DRL's work on vibration sensors since DRL's are meant to be always on.

When you start the car the DRL's switch on due to the engine vibrations and will turn off when the car is parked and ignition is off.

That's why they will never void any warranty since the connection is directly to battery with no OEM wire splicing or cutting.

Yes they are 100% Genuine stuff.
There is no Splicing and cutting of wires involved in my install.The mechanic installed them by connecting them to the battery and then providing me a switch to switch it on and off whenever I want.
But the car will have to be switched on first to switch on these drl's.They cant be switched on when the car is off.
Is there anything important I should get checked surely?Plus my car is 9.5 years old.Warranty is long gone.

Warranty part I was replying to carfreak77. :-)

My question was that you don't need a switch at all since they are vibration based. Maybe in your case he did not use the vibration circuit at all and used the switch instead?
