This is true. I discovered them when installing the Philips DRL kit. They look (unsurprisingly) like this: http://www.ets.borgwarner.com/pages-...-shutters.html

Nope. Auto mode only turns on the headlights when it's dark.

Posted via FF Mobile Ah, yea I went and did a google search right after posting and found the differences. I believe the ST has the led lights in the housing of its headlights, and I think europe was supposed to get them, unless things have changed.

Great write-up, and the DRLs look really good, too.

I'll be doing mine soon and assuming it goes smoothly I'll be glad to help. It might be a few weeks before I have the free time though.

...and it better be Dale's Pale Ale. A fine creation from lovely Colorado!
