Australian Mo with DRL's

Thought I would show all those members who are yet to invest in the DRL option my new MO with them fitted.
They are not available over here I had to import them, thats how much I like them.
I also replaced my parkers with LED's to get the white look all round.
Great forum!

Nice work! Looks great

I guess you split the wiring loom for the DRL's since its a LHD loom ?

Would be good if someone figured out how to drop the DRL brightness/intensity to half & keep them on when the headlights are in operation

LED's match nicely....what did you use ? Do you have a night shot ?

Yea I agree they need to go to half brightness at night when you turn the lights on, as they are you couldn't have them on at night, they are way too bright.

I had to extend the wiring to fit theses on our RHD Mo, I had an auto electrician do it, Nissan didn't want to take the risk, too lazy.

The LEDs are off eBay, I got a pair with 26 LEDs on them, they go all down the 4 sides, really intense.

Baloo,

Do you recall how many wires the DRL's had...2 or 3.

I've read on GTR forums that their DRL's (same for all markets) are set up for dimming at night (3 wires) but the US harness (possibly) is only setup for on & off (with Headlights on).

I want my Mo DRL's on at night but dimming .....before I splash some cash on them!

I can't recall, I know they can't be dimmed. I did some research and I'm pretty sure you could buy a module to connect to make them dimmable. A few years back I bought a set of Audi A6 LEDs for another car, they came with the module to dim them but I sold them when I sold the car. Anything is possible, look on ebay and search for A6 LEDs, see what comes up and do more research.
Good luck, let me know how you go.

Thanks Baloo. The link gave me an indication on what to order. I finally placed an order through dealExtreme online.

I can see the passenger side is easy to swap the bulbs, but the driver side looks more complicated. Did you have to access the bulb from the wheel arch?

I got a 110lumens 16 x LEDs (1W) and a 120lumens 20 x LEDs (1.3).

Will see how it goes.

You can access both bulbs from the top, fairly simple, looks tight but you can squeeze your hand in.
Good luck let us know how you go.

Thanks Baloo. The install was easy and the end result was the entire headlight having a more consistent colour output.

I got two different LEDs from DealExtreme. The one that closely matched the HIDs was a 6500K 110Lumens.

T10 1W 6500K 110-Lumen 16-3020 SMD LED White Light Car Lamps (DC 12~14V / Pair) - Free Shipping - DealExtreme

Install should take about 15 minutes on average.
