My new daylight running lights are now fitted to my car. They are very bright in the daylight and light up when the ignition is on. When I turn on the headlights they turn off for night driving and also incorporate fog lamps within the unit. These cost me around £200 and was charged for 3 hours labour, although they took longer to fit than expected according to the independent Jaguar specialist.
I am very pleased with these after market lights but expect some stick for not keeping my XK as factory standard from some of you on the forum.

Reggie, if that’s what you wanted and you’re happy with it then who cares what anyone else thinks. It’s your car not theirs and, although I prefer mine to be stock, the upgrade you’ve carried out does not detract from the original beauty of the car and is quite sensible.:mrgreen:

They look great, so as long as you like them!! :-D

I've been thinking about doing something similar on my 06XK, I've found some Fog DRL's online for £249.99, where did you get yours, and do they still have the directional lighting function when headlights are on?

Each to their own Reggie, each to their own and I for one like them and wouldn't have known any different had you not told me.

It's all well and good keeping things stock if it's an E Type, etc.

Mindst you, don't Aston Martin and others upgrade classic cars with modern running gear?

So, not only will you now be heard, you'll be seen as well :-D

They actually cost £249.99 from Adamesh. The daylight running lights turn off when the headlights are on but the great thing about these they also have fog lights in the same lamp unit. I will keep the original fog lamps should anyone wish to return the car back to factory when I eventually sell the car on.
