I don't believe this is the case. See this AA page:

Daytime running lights : Daytime Running Lights - The AA
Where it clearly says :-

By 2006 drivers in 12 countries had to drive with their headlights on all year round including Sweden since 1977, Iceland, Latvia, Macedonia and Norway since around 1980, Denmark since 1990 and Romania, Slovenia and parts of Portugal since 1998.

Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic required daytime use of headlights in the winter only while Hungary and Italy required daytime running lights outside built up areas.

Thank you all for your opinions, I greatly appreciate them. For those who asked, I bought the DRL kit off ebay ( ) I added a module (bought it locally) that dims the DRLs 50% once the low-beam is on.

I will try to rotate the drl's 90 degrees. Didn't think of it at first, but it might look better. I looked at the DRL's today, and not sure if they'll fit rotated... but I'll give it a try anyway.

Any update?

Did you flip them around 90 degrees?

How do they look?

did you install the grill yourself? how hard was it? what do you need to do it? how many screws is it fixed with...

mine need to be changed, i found some on the internet for 70 euros and i want to install it myself, but if its a headache than i'll pay the "robbers"

thanks in advance....

I liked the original grille... It's shiny!

I don't know which grille I actually prefer... so I would have left the one you had...

The DRLs look okay too.. but it was a genius idea to turn them round so they stand up rather than lie down.

If you can't rotate them..... (and this is just my idea and remember I liked the grille you first fitted) why not get another pair and fit those in the top of the slot, so that you have almost a "C" shape in each corner...
