    For DRLs they use the side lights.

    err no, I think you'll find the drl's are separate from side lights in the xenons, when I changed my side light and drl's to one single led unit I was left with an empty hole in the headlamp housing, well that's what I remember but I may be wrong.

    For B7s with xenon headlamps – the halogen headlight housing does not have a DRL bulb (the high beams are located in the halogen housings where the DRL goes in the xenon housings). If you want to do a similar mod for your B7 equipped with halogen headlights, you’ll want to replace the city lights instead of the DRL bulbs – they’re the smaller bulb located in the upper corner of the inner housing of the headlight

    My xenons came with 3 bulbs. HID / sidelight lamp and drl lamp.
