    HELLA LEDayline 5 Daytime Running Lights

    Just bought these for the avant, anybody fitted DRLs to their B6 if so can you put some pics up for me, ive always used RING AURORAs in the past , but they seem to break after a year, hoping the Hellas will by OEM quality - Regards Gary

    Gotta say I'm really not a fan of DRLs . Some of them are waaaaaay too bright and I have seen some positioned so badly I couldn't see the front indicators.

    What front have you got on your car? And where are you going to fit them?

    How are you going to be able to fit a slim led unit into a honeycomb effect grille and make it look good?

    I have the Ring dual function (day brightness and night brightness) SMD LED DRL's and I fitted them in my fog light grilles, but I have an S4 front bumper and grilles so that's obviously different to yours, but you get the idea. I had to shave just a little bit off of my front bumper and a little bit off of the grilled to make them fit as I wanted them to look as factory fitted as possible. I'm pleased with the outcome though! One of mine did die as mentioned after about a year, but we'll see how the new ones last.

    They look good, I like them. But I don't think fitting them to a GmbH front will be anywhere near as forgiving!

    I will use a toolmaker to machine slots for DRLs , the company I work for has lots of let's say plenty of skill sets to machine virtually anything in any material almost

    on newer cars they dim the drl when the indicator is active, some even active the fog light on the side that is indicating
