I was informed that in my state all new cars must be equiped with Daytime Running lights. Weather that is true or not i can not say. Just what I was told by several people. I notice I have the base model 2005 6i (all that was available when I whent down). I notice i DO NOT have daytime Running lights at all. it even shows in the manual that i have them. so can anyone tell me whats with that?. I have only seen 1 on the road with the daytime running lights on (You could tell it wasn't headlights) and it was crappily decked out so I have a feeling they did it themselves. but i've noticed i never seen any other 6's on the road with daylight running lights either. or is this a feature that can be shut off and turned on?

DRL's are standard on Canadian 6's. USA 6's do not have DRL's. I'm not sure what the deal is with your state though.

What you saw was probably the fog light mod. Where you can turn your fogs on without the headlights.

Thats what I have done, and I use it for dusk driving and incliment weather conditions.

You may have even just seen a car with just it&#39;s parking lights on, when the parking lights are on, it turns on the smaller bulb in the bright&#39;s housing.

Arent DRL required in canada? I know in the US its not required (but probably should be) and "Ford" cars almost never have them. Some other mfg commonly DO have them.. (my 98 chevy blazer and all versions after that have them for example)

Yes DRLs are required in canada. And for some reason seems like chevy (GM) is the only usa company making DRLs standard equipment.

That&#39;s the point of DRLs! It is a safety feature that increases the visibility of vehicles during the day.

How could safety be annoying. Don&#39;t you want other people to notice your vehicle more? So that they don&#39;t pull out of a driveway in front of you? So that they don&#39;t turn in front of you when they are making a left turn?
