As a standalone unit, no, they aren't DRLs. So they don't switch off automatically when the headlamp turns on - as a DRL should do. However I did buy an 'auto off controller relay' kit but I decided not to install it since they look so nice on at night time. Same situ. with the bottom LED bar in the lower grille. I'll be soon fitting fog lamps that will work as cornering lamps also because our country ma sha Allah is very dark in terms of lighting haha.
Yep, a lot of people did know about 'DRLs' but if you've taken note, in the past 2 yrs or so, especially in lhr and fsd, people have just gone crazy with them, more specifically with those ugly COB ones.
Thanks a lot, appreciate the love man (Y)
