Studies across Europe have shown that your vehicle is up to 15% less likely to be involved in a vehicle to vehicle accident during daylight if daytime running lights are used. It will also benefit other road users such as pedestrians and cyclists who will see the vehicle earlier. True Daytime Running Lights must switch on with the vehicle ignition and switch off or reduce in intensity when the vehicle sidelights are switched on. They are more efficient than using dipped headlights in terms of fuel and maintenance costs as LEDs consume less power.

I expected them to be a little 'plastiky' and for the price, they possibly should be, but quite the opposite.
The DRLs have a glass lens, the bodies are heavy resin (almost steel to the touch) the wire at the rear of the unit is completely silicone sealed and waterproof and the brackets are very solid.
There are 2 allen bolts to hold & adjust them and the cables are plenty long enough. The cables also have a good plastic sleeving to protect them and the Auto switching unit has a metal black anodized casing. Stunning quality !
I had some fiddling about with the fitment, but that was due to my car and not the DRLs. Just lack of space and me making sure the whole fitment was spot on.
They are superb in the daylight. I have them connected to the main beam (simple one wire connection) and as soon as you switch the lights on, the DRLs switch off. Simple.
In conclusion, I can only thoroughly recommend the Ring Aurora DRL. The quality is simply stunning and the performance is top notch !
Interestingly I bought the lights as the original pair, bought 4 years, or maybe longer, ago are still looking pristine and working perfectly. They are off a slightly different design, presumably from a better Chinese factory.
Thought I would have a search around for what was available.
Bottom line, for what I want, the Ring BRL 0397 DRL's appear to be the best (retro fit) available for the price.
AutoGear including pp was unbelievable, £20-£26 less than some other retailers. I placed my order (Amazon) on Monday 4th and they arrived this morning 6th at 11:00am. Packaging first class which also included a 12v (8 AA's) battery test pack. Needless to say the LED's work, build quality really really good although I have yet to test the switching unit.
Will fit as per instructions (engine on lights on - any other outside light on DRL's off).
I will use instead of the supplied perfectly adequate self tappers, galvanised nuts and bolts.
The front end of my vehicle is a 2.8 Fiat Ducato and is slightly curved.
Something to consider, ensuring lights point straightforward at final fit.
Another great shopping experience at Amazon - and top marks to AutoGear.
Thank you to all.
You can't change the lighting configuration..... they have to be connected directly to the battery. The lighting control module "spots" the battery voltage dropping as the starter is engauged, & increasing as the alternator kicks in, switching them on. The only off function (apart from automatically 5 seconds after the engine is turned off) is to connect the third wire to another light source. I've connected it to the dipped beam, so they still work in conjuction with the side lights. I think they would be too bright & distracting after dark with dipped beams. The are DRLs after all !! They show up on a bright sunny day, & look good too. Fitted in 20 minutes within the lower grill. Note - they are higher than most DRLs due to their reflector design so make sure they will fit.
#### UPDATE :: After a year of service.... I've now added a remote LED dimmer unit to thses (£9.99 from Discountlightinguk) & so can control the brighness of these at dawn / dusk when they tend to dazzle people. Works fine... but... on a very dim setting, the auto detect on/off function may not detect that the ignition has gone off & the lights stay on permanently. I just experimented until the setting was right (not too dim) for the auto off function to work..... & of course its my own custom set up so can't blame the lights or dimmer unit.
