Spyder Headlights

This has probably been asked before and I apologize if I am rehashing an old thread. I'm not well versed in mods. I'm wondering if these spyder headlights with the included DRL are truly plug and play. Such as, is anything required for the DRL to simply be on while driving the vehicle. I usually have my headlights in the auto position. I have a 2012 TI HATCH.

Your link is broken, but if they are these headlights:



Then, no. They just work as parking lights. They basically replace that top corner bulb on the OEM headlight. They are not even bright enough to be seen during the day, I don't know why they call them DRL's.

Spyder also makes these:

Which is a replica of the ST3 lights. I'm not sure how bright that "DRL" strip is either. I know some people on here have them though, maybe they could chime in.

I had the replica ST3 lights on my SE. The aren't as bright as chrysler's or Mercedes DRLs. The show brightest at night or an overcast day. The cornering lights have an LED bulb that's bright though. Have a picture of them in my for sale thread.

Asking the same question as the OP asked for these spec-d tuning headlights, does the DRL automatically? I have been thinking of getting them, does anybody have them?

I just ordered these. Based on the demo of the headlights at the end of the video I'm assuming the led eyebrow strip should function the same as the parking lights on the OEM headlights.

They are in Canada, after the 13C05 recall.
