My old Carolla had Dim Dip instead of sides --but the mandatory use law was never passed so manufacturers dropped them. Oh yea & the 16 seater Transit school bus I used to drive allso had them. In 2012 I believe DRL's will be Law in all EU countries , so us Brits are just going to have to get used to it. However modern DRL run on 60% of HIGH Beam which is probably the most stupid system I have ever heard of. Whats the matter with Dip beam or ultra bright sides??? Can you Imagine some Spanish guy on the Costa Del Sol at midday on a bright summer Spanish day, driving around with DRL's on. We've managed all these years in Europe without them ( Apart from the Analy Retentive Swedes) so whats the big deal now---& I dont want to hear any Road Safety B/S... Blind people are not allowed to drive in the UK.I want PROOF Positive & not by some proffesor with a Micky Mouse Degree in Piano tuning or Pencil sharpening !!!!
