They're amazing on rainy days and night. But they're not that bright in the day time. The company who sold me the lights are sending me some 'inverter' and if that brightens the lights, then the answer to your question would be yes. But not yet. lol.

I've have got at DRL setup similiar to the VW golf and the jeeps, where my high beams are constantly on at low voltage when the ignition is switched on. When my blinding Hid's come on the DRL'S turn off. It's another Another alternative to having strips. Even had highway patrol say (that's a good idea) when recently pulled over at a RBT.


Have you got any pictures?

I was thinking of getting a white LED strip and mount it to the bottom side of the radiator cover so it illuminates the space behind the front grille, is that legal?

Hey there Metalstrix great thread by the way.

Do you have a daytime pic of your lights on DLR, I really like them but would like to see them in the daylight to see how bright they are.

Thanx
Duncs

I like this thread, good info and well presented.

But,

I think my evo will remain without DRLs - at least for a while.

edit

I wonder if DRLs repel roos and wombats etc?

Just on those particular headlights from Rainbow pen are very dim and are charging $800 for it. Whereas the seller in that link are the better quality ones. Yeah I'm thinking of getting those ones once I can afford it.
