Dear mate, you can check out the automotive lighting thread for the details about installation and facility for the DRL. How much did it cost you including shipping as I too would like to go in for the same for my City Ivtec.

thanks

Hi devilwearsprada, I am willing to install it myself, but major concern is to open up the Headlight lens by heating up. Just scared to do that myself, by mistake if i over heat the plastics and what if it get melted ?

Regarding the glue and 2 sided stickers, i think there wont be any need of those, unless if i am not using small clips & Screws provided along with the DRL tube to install it on the headlights, which will not be visible outside as well.

As i am in Cochin right now, just need to find out someone who can do the job here.

Default Re: The DRL Thread: Everything about daytime running lights

I recently bought Xenon White COB LED DRL Daytime Running Lights They are 100% Waterproof and give out 6000K light. Cost is Rs 615/-

The dimensions are 6.8 inches x 0.65 inches x 0.015 inches.

These DRLs are not flexible. The LEds are in a black colored aluminium casing. The casing can be installed using the provided 3M double sided tape.

These DRLs are super bright! I have yet to test them in day light but i am sure they are sufficiently bright for day time. I will post a video of that soon.

Meanwhile enjoy some pics of it. I have not fixed them permanently yet on my indica xeta glx. I am still collecting suggestions for the best possible position.

Check out the pictures and kindly suggest.

Hi guys,

I am looking for DRLs for my VW Polo 1.6 and want them to look as stock as possible. I came across something on Ebay.in which I believe would serve the purpose.

Here is the link

http://www.ebay.in/itm/LED-Daytime-R...item3cdbdd8930

Has anyone used the above product? I like the fact that they dim once the parking lights are switched on.

I also came across a video on You Tube on the functioning of a set of DRLs on the Polo 6R. Check this out -

Are these installed on the slats on the air dam of the bumper? Does the light vibrate when engine is running?

LED's take up low power but are you facing any drop in RPM when using the DRLs?

Location of the extra fuse added?

Yes these have been installed on the air dam

The lights do not vibrate while the engine is running, as its tightly secured by the mount brackets and side clips.

No issues noticed with RPM

Extra fuse added to the wiring itself and secured adjacent to the fuse box.
