DRLs. And not sure, but ive seen a few though im not a big fan. You could always get regular fogs and hook them up through a switch directly from the car battery so you can have them on whenever you want. i would despise lights i couldnt turn off.

I am interested in the same thing. It seems like only select cars in the US get DRLs, which I don't understand.

LOL.. I have DRL and thought it was a major PITA to disable them for my HID install... I wish mine came from the factory without that blasted DRL module heh. IMO, dont worry about looking for a DRL module.. just turn on your lights if you need to, and be glad that you can turn them off when you want to

So, Are you saying DRL burns the low beams? I thought it usually burns the high beams at a lower voltage.

No, I wouldnt say it burns the low beams.. it just turns them on-off quickly to keep them dim, apparently the low beams can handle it. I just dont like DRLs, but some ppl do. Unfortunately - in answer to the original poster's question - I dont know where one could get the module, other than perhaps a Canadian junk yard.

Burns was the wrong word. I know many of the cars I see in the US that have DRLs run the High Beam lights at a lower voltage(or flicker them like you say)

I wish it would be that easy to ignore that, but my US car is not licensed in canada yet. personally I dont care for having DLR but the regulations state that I need them to safety the car.
