Xenon depo question (DRLS)
« on: December 27, 2016, 11:17:46 PM »
Hi all, i searched this topic a lot on the forum but couldnt find an exact answer..

if i buy the depo's off ebay for my mk5, and activate US DRL will i get the amber strip all the way across?

or will i need i need to buy genuine xenons to have that feature?

i just want the full amber sidelight US DRL feature, not fussed about whether genuine or depo headlights .

thank you in advance  :smiley:
