- My model of MX-5 is: 2008 Sport PRHT NC1
- I’m based near: Surrey
- I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: DRL oprions
The front side lights on the NC are as bright as a dead glow worm.
I don’t like to drive on dipped head lights all the time.
So I drive with no lights on the majority of the (day)time just like everyone used to in the days before Daytime Running Lights.
But, now that most cars have DRLs it seems that those pulling out are not looking as well as they need to. I had three people pull out in front of me today.
1 - Old boy exiting a country lane onto an A road, probable sh@t himself when I over took him a milli second later.
2- Spotty yoof in a blacked out pimped up golf, who just plain did not see me in a small town.
3- An Audi estate leaving a country pub car park, but he drives an Audi so that is OK.
My NC is galaxy grey, and in the patchy sunlight/overcast conditions today, may be hard to see if you are not looking properly, especially amongst the trees and leafy lanes of the South East.
So I am thinking about adding DRLs. MX5PARTS do a set for abot £30 , “Cruise-Lite Ice LED Daytime Lights”, similar seem to be available on amazon for similar money.
Has anyone fitted these? Any “Gotchas”?
Any legal concerns?
Any fitting advice?
