Just to be clear, NO OWNER has to put DRLs on their car, even if they drive in other European countries.
The DRL requirement applies to cars TYPE APPROVED after Feb 2011. That means new car designs being approved after Feb 2011. No current Alfas actually require DRLs, though the Giulia and 4C will have to have them when they get round to launching them (as Type Approval for those models is bound to occur after Feb 2011).
As another example, we've just taken delivery of a brand new Ford Kuga on a 61 plate, manufactured September 2011 (so after the Feb 2011 Type Approval deadline). However, this Kuga does not have, nor require DRLs, because the current Kuga model was Type Approved around 2008.
The MkII Kuga (Vertrek Concept), on the other hand, when it eventually comes out around 2013, will need DRLs because it's Type Approval will definitely occur after 2011.
Hence, on all of our Alfas at this point in time do not legally require DRLs. The only current reason to have them is stylistic.
