    Swift DayLight Running Lights (DRL)

    I wish to buy DRLs for my swift. I was looking for a few which are available in chennai. There is one from Philips and others are Chinese stuff.

    Philips costs around 5k + install - This comes with a pair of DRLs with 8 LEDs per set. This comes with relay.

    Other Chinese stuff is around 600 rs - a pair of DRLs with 8 LEDs per set. This does not come with a relay.

    http://www.ebay.in/itm/CAR-DAY-LIGHT...ht_4531wt_1197

    I wish to connect the DRLs to the ignitation switch so that the DRLs are on when the engine is on. What I would like to know is the use of relay? and if I get the second one which costs 600 rs - will I be able to purchase a relay from outside and install them?

    any pointers will be really helpful.

    MutantX one general noob doubt. These drls. Are they of any use? Only bandha looks right. Do they actually serve the real purpose of drls?

    DRL's are of no-use in South India at least where it's sunny throughout the year . May be they might be of some use in North India during winters. But DRL's are quite useful in those cold countries in Europe.
    MutantX - Yes, I came across a good set up in an Indica today. Forgot to take the picture. I am looking for a good design and hopefully a good installer.

    Like what roadracer said, there is no use of DRLs in chennai / south india. DRLs are really useful in the north expecially when you travel early morning in the fog/smog. DRLs serve as a warning light for vehciles or pedastians who are comin in the opposite direction as the wavelength of their light travel far and deep as compared to conventional halogen lights.

    For me in Chennai DRLs are just for fun looks cool if installed right.
