    Those of you with LED DRL's...

    Just want to check on something... I've noticed that the LED's get a lot dimmer when I'm using indicators on my car. So if I'm indicating left, the left LED's will get dimmer by a noticeable amount! The ones on the right stay as bright as normal. Is mine alone at doing this or is it normal?

    Cheers,
    Coss

    It's normal, it's a safety feature to make the indicator more visible when in use....

    They are meant to do that so the indicator can be seen better - my non LED DRLs do the same.
