I have been spending a lot of time on the road recently, yes I have done in 6 weeks just short of 7000 km's. :shock:

Something that I noticed and have been always for it is to have your lights on all the time when driving. However that leads to the lights reflector yellowing a bit prematurely, thus i have taken a liking since the launch of the LED lights that vehicles have been fitted with recently.

It does help to see a bit clearer the vehicle approaching and in my view it does aid to safer driving.

The question now is what is the view on these lights to the other members. I am contemplating to fit it to my vehicles front and back to aid vehicle safety. However it has to have a amber light function as well when driving in heavy rain its a lot more visible.


Anyone have any legal issues that needs to be kept in mind when looking into this?

I always drive with my headlights for the same reasons. Never had issues in about 10 years, :thumbup:

Good to see you back on the forum.

DRL's are a euro standard, all vehicles released now have to include them for visibility.

Don't think you would have an issue with the legal aspect, there are guidelines to mountung them though, they have to be within 30cm of the corner of the vehicle and cannot be higher than a meter IIRC.

Most spares places sell them now 8-)

Johan, the best part is that those LED running light take 90% less power than your headlights.. therefore more juice goes from the alternator into your batteries when you are on tour... Any means of making yourself more visible to other road users is a bonus in my books...

I will be looking for some LED driving lights too shortly...

I think that is a bit overkill Steve.. :twisted: :twisted: melting the oncoming driver's retinas is not really good sportsmanship.. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Pieter should maybe investigate DRL's and put them in his shop..

Oom Thys, I have a challenge with the quality of lights from Autostyle, 9/10 times they don't last as long as one would expect, or they leak. As a matter of fact a friend came past my house last night with a Opel bakkie, new headlights, these had an intergrated bank strip of day light running lights installed, out of about 12 LED's, 4 were already unserviceable. Head lights were installed last month. :shock2:

I have been looking at importing such lights for a while now.

Problem is I can buy the crap the spare shops sell at (my price) about R180 a set, or I can import very good quality which will cost me about R400 a set.
Selling a proper light at more than double the price is not easy if people think the going rate is the cheap set. That is why I do not have them yet because I do not want to sell a product that will only last a month and the good one I think is too expensive.

Daai is die probleem nê. Maar hoe se daai gesegde... goedkoop koop is duur koop.

Miskien moet jy altwee weergawes inbring en dan in hulle beskrywings 'n live expectancy gee... dan kan die mense self besluit ;-)

R400 is not bad for a higher quality product, personally would never look at any light or light fitting from Autostyle, don't know where they get THAT cheap LED's from :shock2:

I buy from them only known brands, i.e. Osram, Sony, Starsound etc.

Pieter bring in a few sets, I will buy a set and then test them. Even at the bigger price.. I am sure there are other guys that will also test them. Your price for high quality stuff will still be better than in the shops.. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Ek het ook die pad geloop van sigbaarheid : ons werk baie op die hoofpaaie en om sigbaar te wees is belangrik. Ongelukkig se die reels van Hoofpaaie jy MOET 'n amber lig he, met hoever dit sigbaar moet wees in daglig en met bla bla bla nog baie ander reels. En hy moet roteer. Eers het ons moeilikheid gehad toe ons strobes opsit, maar gelukkig is dit gou opgelos. Nou sit ons saam met die amber strobes wit Chinese plestiek R 40 nommertjies op. Wat natuurlik baie meer sigbaar en baie verder sigbaar is. Nannies. Ons het dit toe ook op die spuitmasjiene begin gebruik ( wat in die strate werk en strate spuit ) As die goed nie hou nie, is dit uiters R 80 uit jou sak, die wat ons nou op het hou al 14 maande sonder probleem.

Die ander sy van die saak is seker dat dit onsinnig is om 'n stel " running lights " wat R 80 kos op 'n voetuig vas te plak wat R 300,000 + kos. Maar dan, en dis die geluk met die Chinese goed : jy het altyd nuwe goed op jou voetuig. :razz: :razz:

I replaced the park light globes on my car with a replacement LED bulb with 13 LED's, not quite the same but almost the same effect on mine as the park light bulb is in the same headlamp unit as the mains, cost was under R100 and no extra wiring needed - quick and easy. The lights are surprisingly bright.

Before and after. Not as bright as the genuine daytime running lights but they will have to do until I get around to installing the genuine item.

Pieter laat weet as jy wel van daai beter LED's inbring ....


Ek sit self n paar duisend kilos n maand op die Etios .... soos Thys seg - enige iets wat mens meer sigbaar maak.


Tans ry ek 85% van die tyd met die ligte aan. Sal net makliker wees as ek die LEDs so bedraad dat dit outomaties aan kom saam met die ignition.

Pieter het jy al weer gekyk na opsies vir daytime running lamps (LED) ?

Met die RAV het ek gou lief geraak vir die LED running lamps.


Sodra die voertuig begin beweeg gaan die LED's aan - BRIGHT !! Daai ligte is skerp genoeg in parkeer areas dat jy nie die hoof ligte hoef aan te sit nie.

Sodra jy die voertuig se ligte aan sit, dan "dim" die LED's ....


om in die helder son van nut te wees moet daai LED's so skerp wees, maar in die donker is dit steurend, dus die dim funksie.

Pieter sal jy so iets kan kry ? Begin al meer belang stel in so iets vir die Etios ....

Ek moet eintlik weer begin kyk daarna.
Ons het so baie goed gehad om in te voer dat ek eers met daai gestop het.
Ek het in die Aygo gesit en die Ai=ygo, Yaris en etios vat dieselfde.
Snaaks genoeg ook RAV en selfs Prado 150 vat dieselfde as bogenoemde.

Sal kyk wanneer ek weer begin invoer dan sal ek so stel of twee kry, maar kan nie nou tyd belowe nie.

Klink interressant ...

plug and play, of moet mens die bedrading insny ?


PS - die 2016 RAV het nou langer LED's as die vorige reeks.

Plug en play , jy connect net + en - op battery en die res prop in. As ek reg onthou moet jy iewers een draad by jou parkeerlig inlas sodat hy weet wanneer ligte aanskakel sodat hy die DRL kan dim.
