Banner

The original Philips LED Daytime Lights has now been replaced by two new and improved models. Take a look at our full LED DRL daytime running lights range.

Philips have created their range of DRL daytime running light kits. These kits have been designed by Philips to fit most of today’s modern vehicles and are the original LED Daytime running light. The kits are easy to fit with its simple click into place mechanism. Philips now offer two kits - the Daylight 4 and Daylight 8.

It is now mandatory to have daylight running lights in the EU

From 2011, it has been compulsory for all vehicles produced within the EU to be fitted with Daytime running lights. Most of these lights use ordinary Halogen bulbs, so this look can be greatly improved by fitting an LED Daylight running kit as an aftermarket addition. This will mean extra visibility for the driver and give the vehicle more of a modern look.

Philips LED Daytime Running Light DRL kits features powerful LUXEON LEDs, the same quality as used on new vehicles. This ensures excellent performance with the proven technology of Philips, one of the world's leading automotive lighting manufacturers.

It is estimated by the EU that the installation of daylight running lights will save between 1,200 and 2,000 road fatalities each year across the continent.

We'd recommend choosing the Philips LED Daytime Running Light Kits if you're looking for:

  • A kit that will fit the majority of vehicles
  • High quality LUXEON LEDs, as used on new vehicles
  • Philips original equipment build quality.
