Ultra-compact LED lighting gives your vehicle a distinctive appearance.
Maximum Light Output

Philips LED DayLight 8 enhances daytime driving for high visibility and maximum safety that delivers a 100% wider beam than the average DRL on the road. Cars equipped with LED DayLight 8 can be seen much more easily by pedestrians and other motorists. DRLs have been proven to contribute to a significant reduction in accident rates. Fully compliant with existing DOT and SAE regulations, the lights turn on automatically at the start of the engine and reduce by 50% when parking lights are on.

Premium Design

LED Daylights deliver the look of today's high-end, high performance vehicles. The LED DayLight 8 has a premium ultra-slim design, which gives the lighting a highly distinctive appearance, setting your vehicle apart from the crowd.

Easy Installation

The compact LED DayLight 8 is easy to install (approximately 2 hours). Their snap-in mounts and plug-and-play connectors ensure easy and quick installation. The LED DayLight 8 design and smart mounting kit makes it easy for non-professionals to install. Once mounted, the lights switch on automatically. Note: this product is not compatible with Electric/Hybrid vehicles.

Designed for Safety

Designed for Safety Light is the first and the only proactive element of the safety circle that helps prevent accidents. The extreme white and powerfully bright light of the LED DayLights are best perceived by pedestrians and oncoming traffic.

A study, published by the European Commission, has evaluated that daytime running lights have a yearly life-saving factor of 3 to 5 percent (or between 1,200 and 2,000 road fatalities per year).

And that's not all--a greater number of accidents occur during daytime than is commonly believed. About 40% of the total number of accidents occur during daytime.

Daylight light solutions provide better visibility of your car because of their unusual position, and because they diffuse light in all directions compared to low beam light that projects concentrated light onto the road.

Notice: Once installed, the vehicle must be turned on in order for the Philips DayTime Running Lights to operate.

These Philips LED DRLs are well built, bright, rugged, and the supplied harness and hardware are top notch. Heatsinking is excellent so the LEDs should remain bright for the life of the car. The LEDs on my units are also of matched tint with none appearing particularly warmer or cooler. Overall the tint is a cool white which goes well with HID headlights, but my halogen fogs look very yellow next to these. They are not as surprisingly bright as I was hoping for after reading the reviews here, but isn't that how it always is with high expectations. (EDIT: After 3 weeks in varying weather I can say they are satisfyingly bright. I find myself driving off at night forgetting to turn my headlights on since they do illuminate the road to a degree.)

Hookup is easy - 3 wires: battery +/-, and one lead to a parking light. The control module has two excellent waterproof plugs that connect to the lights. The lights have sufficiently long wires with matching plugs at the end. All wire is protected by a gloss black vinyl tubing. The lead to the parking light was not long enough for my installation (control module mounted on center of firewall to left front park light).

The lights function by sensing change in battery load and automatically turn on. When the module senses the battery is in a steady state the lights turn off after ~10 seconds. This works well enough, but has some quirks. My car has delayed-off dome lights. So when I open the door and trigger the dome lights, the module senses the current and the DRLs turn on (no key in ignition). Not quite 10 seconds later the DRLs turn off (meanwhile my dome lights are still on). Then when my dome lights turn off, the module senses another change and turns the DRLs on again for 10 seconds.

Just had these installed in my 2008 Infiniti G37. The lights look good and function more or less as advertised (come on bright, dim when other lights come on), but I also noticed the lights had a blinking duty cycle in dim mode when I stopped after 30 minutes of driving (see video). This is not documented, but is exactly as LAQ described. There must be a reason for this. My lights were professionally installed according to the directions.

Philips Automotive (248-553-9080) first advised the blinking was because the 3rd wire to enable dimming is connected to a circuit that has auto-on capability (my marker light, parking light or city light whatever you want to call it). Most modern vehicles have sensors to automatically turn on lights at night or in tunnels. Philip's advised this capability conflicts with the DRL's auto-dimming function; even during the daytime when the headlights don't come on! One or the other must be disabled. I removed this 3rd wire on the DRL leaving the DRL's permanently in their bright mode. UPDATE: Cutting the wire to the parking light had no effect - the lights still blinked. After further discussion with Philips, they commented the Daylight 8 LEDs are designed in Europe and when installed on many North American vehicles the (voltage?) tolerances are not the same. They sent me a new control module (Alternative Control box ACC/KL15 starter)with one additional wire to a fuse box. Once installed again, the lights performed as advertised. I downgraded my rating from 4 stars to 3 stars as this issue was not documented and I was given incorrect advice the first time. Philips is not only aware, they have an alternate module ready - this situation should be both documented and a warning to clients.

Based upon the glowing reviews for this product, I decided to make the investment in the LED DayLight 8 running lights for my new F-150 King Ranch. The product is well-made, lives up to all of the reviews, and the shipment was prompt and problem-free. Installation was relatively straight-forward, although the instructions for the wiring sequence were a little confusing and I hadn't anticipated the need to remove the entire headlight assembly to access the wire to the parking light. I was very pleased with the end result, until a few days later when someone on the street pointed out that the running lights were flashing on and off. It seems that after the vehicle runs about a minute, the running lights begin flashing...5 seconds on and 2 seconds off. It appears the control box may be overheating....which seems further supported by the fact that the flashing stops when the running lights are in "dim mode" when the headlights are on. Convinced a replacement control box would fix the problem, I called the Philips support number that is listed on the instructions and on the box the running lights came in. This phone number is for the household lighting division, which is totally unfamiliar with this product. They transferred me to the automotive division...which appears to only be able to help consumers identify which replacement light bulbs to buy for their vehicles. After several circular conversations it became evident that Philips was unable / unwilling to help me....to the point that it seemed they had never heard of this product. These results are very disappointing. The LED Daylight 8 running lights were a great addition to my truck and I am very frustrated that after spending over 2 hours to install them, I now have to uninstall them tonight so that UPS can pick them up tomorrow to return Amazon. Since I'm not willing to invest the time for another installation with potentially similar results, I didn't request a replacement set.
