    Daylight Running Lighting

    Thinking about getting a set of Headlights with the Daylight Running lighting for my S3

    Does anyone know if it is difficult to install, i know you can just straight replace the headlights but to wire-up so that the DRL's can run whenever the engine is on?

    also does anyone have any pics (ideally silver S3) with DRL's on so i can see what it looks like

    Cheers


    Dave

    Be fiddly mate. You'd have to split the headlights, install the drl's then id say splice them into the sidelights, easy job just fiddly.

    No it is an 8l just curious what it would look like, have found some custom headlights that come with DRL's as standard but not sure if its worth the expense
