Good afternoon all,

Just had these delivered today...


Not official Nissan supplied but will be getting them checked out before I have them fitted.  Luckily my Dad is an electrician by trade so he'll be checking them out to make sure all ok and then we can look to fit them tomorrow.

Thought give them a try as was under £70 to get them and they'll fit perfectly at the front.  I'll update tomorrow when hopefully got them fitted.

Thanks, Richard...

Had a try fitting these myself, however getting into the bumper area was a nightmare and I only managed to remove half of what was needed to get to where I needed to...  Needless to say, its now gone to my local garage this morning and having them fit in by the same place that fitted my side steps...

So come this afternoon at least they'll be on, I've asked him to do the option where instead of the DRL switching off when side/main come on they dim instead (depends on how wired in ill to off or dimmed)...

Hopefully I'll get some pictures up later...

Thanks, Richard...

All fitted without any issues today, just been out to take some photos of how they are...

I went with the option of having them dim when the side/main come on rather than just turn off..

First picture without side/main lights on...


Second picture with side lights on...


As you can see from the picture of the front lawn, the LED's are brighter when on their own...

Well impressed as they fit into the same space as the 'official' DRL and I've been able to get them and fitted for a third of the cost for just the official Nissan DRL set...

Hi,

I got them fitted at a local garage to me in Chorley (in Lancashire)...  However I got them ordered off aliexpress.com and though a bit concerned as imported, wasn't stung for any import tax and so far passed two MOT's (MOT's down at Nissan Dealership) without any concerns...

Thanks...

Price wise, how much do you think is reasonable to pay to get these fitted?
