I've got a 2010 Giulietta and was wondering if there is a software upgrade that dims the DRL on the side when you indicate a turn? Like Audis etc do?

The proximity of the two functions on the Audi would legally require a stronger indicator bulb if the drl did not fade when it flashed. I'm not aware the Giulietta has the same issue.

Thanks for the quick reply can you please explain that because I noticed even new land rovers do the same thing and their lamps are miles away from each other?

The functions need to be less than 100mm apart, indicator to position or drl lamp , or the next indicator bulb lumen level is required. It's only logical . Think of the mk5 Golf layout which was dodgy . But if its all led its easy to achieve .

I may be misunderstanding what you have said but I don't understand why the closer the functions are together makes it less desirable? Did you mean more than 100mm apart?

I did mean if there's another function within 100 mm it compromises the visibility of the indicator. The A5 indicator is just above the drl.

Thanks for the explanation. On another note this is the first car I've had with DRL's and I find people pull out in front of me more often than ever before. Do you think this could explain increased motorcycle accidents since they also have had DRL's for a number of years now? I do know how to switch off the DRL's in the cars menu but wondered why I have the option if its a new EU requirement?
