    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
