There have been other FF owners that had the dealer turn it on, but when they wanted it back off... not so successful..

when i purchased my car i initially had the dealer turn on the factory DRLs.. no problems... but... when i found out all my exterior lights were on and the HLs were on full and not 80% reduced as in other makes, i asked the dealer to turn off the factory DRLs.. took 10 minutes w/ no problems at all...

Have you had others with problems turning them off? What were the problems they experienced?

I had read on here someplace where the dealer couldn't figure out how to turn them off

My car was a rental car. Had DRL's on all the time. I work at a dealer and had mine turned off.

Most Audi's use the LED angel eyes for DRLs now no?

Man I love the Euro headlights. No fugly orange turnsignal, just clear lens with amber bulbs. WHY FORD couldn't you do the same on all of them IDIOTS!.


The new lower Grill lights come with a new grill or just the lights? If it is the entire grill is it painted gloss black? Most of the LED Daytime running lights I've seen on ebay that utilize replacement of the entire triangle grill come only in flat black. My Ti. has black glossy grills that I'd like to match.

if a dealer could not do something as simple as servicing a vehicle they sell i'd go elsewhere for my maintenance.

Hi Dysan911,

You can always make this a suggestion for future Focus models. Submit it to the "Your Ideas" tab of http://social.ford.com. Ideas can be voted on and are reviewed daily.
