  1. Thanks a lot, your explanation sounds quite clear to me. I'll now have to think about invest more (time, tests,...) or rollback. I definitely don't understand how DRL will enhance my own safety. I think it's just a brand new way to help people getting less attentive to all other road dangers than others drivers. But well, as it will be mandatory to use DRL (or an equivalent system) in a near future, I rather use a bulb that use 0.125W than a 5W one. Anyway, I join your opinion regarding tail lights: I do think LED conversion is useless there.
  2. Hi, I upgraded mu 3500°K Philips W5W blue vision parking light bulbs to SuperBrightLed WLED-WHP9-T LED bulbs. The new bulbs use 9 SMD LED and consume 0.125W to produce a 8500°K ultra white light. As I feared, there's now an error displayed on the on-board computer. Let's try to translate it from French: 'Please check parking light left/right bulb'. I read that I could add a resistor to consume 5W so that the on-board computer stops complaining. But: 1/ I'm pretty sure I'll do something wrong and get the resistor to overheat... 2/ France will impose the use of DRL on all new car on 2011, already licensed car will have to be operated with parking lights always on. So I'm not sure using resistors will help. I'd rather do some kind of programming magic (PIWIS?) to remove the warnings and enable parking lights an automated way (don't want to use the switch each time I use my car). What would you guys recommend? Going with resistors and manual parking light switching or give a try to some computer programming? How to? Thanks a lot.
