Saw these :http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300880824772?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l264915CM 8 LED DAYTIME RUNNING DRL LIGHTS WITH AUTO OFF

New Universal 15CM 8 LED Daytime Running Lights. These fit into your

or headlight wire to automatically turn off when lights switched on
8 x LED's each side

40 Lumens brightness

Ultra Bright white colour approx 6000K

E4 RL00 Stamped for Road use and perfectly legal

I could take a photo, but they would be the same as the website! They come mounted on a neat metal bracket. I just took the screws out of the bracket and the nuts inside are NOT captive and fell out and rattled. Pulled the back off gently. Surprise, everything inside is silicone sealed so completely waterproof, neat and nicely done, even a cable tie to stop the leads being pulled through. For £12 these look very good value.Oh, and despite the advert, NO 3M fixing tape, so looks like a screw-on or buy some waterproof sticky-fixers.Jeff

Thanks, the image code option worked once then stopped.Sorry about image size, just learning photobucket and my Samsung S3 takes high qual images / size and saves straight to dropbox. Have found how to change the size now, so next pics will be smaller!Jeff

photos are great, still got 6 weeks to wait until my Juke is delivered, interested in hearing how easy they are to fit and how good they look. We've just had an offer accepted on a house and that needs a lot of work so may not get around to this for a few months!

i ve have had a set of those for some time now but never had them fitted because i am no good at that kind of thing but they never came with any wiring, just 2 wires coming out of the back about 6inch long

I might be misunderstanding this, but in order to be legal, is it not the case that the DRLs must come on with the ignition and switch off when the headlights are switched on??

They don't have to switch off, but they do need to at least dim - if we're being pedantic
Which mr police person probably would be.

Wording is in this lighting thread TTDegs2013-05-12 14:15:06

I'm sure there'll be a purge on car lighting soon from the traffic cops and I'll be one that's on the wrong side of the law as my drls are on with the side lights, and I've wired my led mirror covers into the side lights as well........naughty me.
I have a relay ready to go, but might look at dimming them if I decide to go legal, and maybe wire the led mirror into the interior light circuit

I should not worry Jukeov i doubt this is a problem at least you dont drive around with your fogs on in perfect conditionswhich is more of a problem than a set of DRL's on with side lights

I imagine from a safety point of view, a boy racer with fog lights on unnecessarily is not so distracting , and therefore, dangerous, as a driver using DRLs (which are designed to be bright in daylight) at night.
In truth, I imagine the real problem will hit when it is time for an MOT, since it seems plod are just not interested in minor issues, unless it's an excuse to pile on pressure when they pull you, or if they are looking for an excuse to pull you in the first place...
