When I originally fitted the Daylight Running Lights (DRL - Total cost $3) it was always a proof of concept and a bit of fun. They looked good but I had never had them fully road tested.
On the way to Stoneleigh I drove behind a friend Andy to see if his exhaust was
smoking (no) and he confirmed that while he could see they were on, but
they didn't stand out all that well. So time for an upgrade.
now replaced them with Hi-intensity LED strips that are dramatically
brighter and were actually advertised as proper Daylight Running Lights
and not just LED strips.
Slightly more expensive (£3/pair ) but they work extremely well. Just need to follow someone else now to see how they hold up.
I actually have 2 more I could put on the lower wishbone, but I think I will then start to look like Blackpool Tower.
(BTW. ignore the drips on the cardboard, that was while I was fitting the extra hose to the power steering.)
