Driving Lights

Driving lights not coming on - how are they switched on? - should they be on same circuit as dipped main beam or is there a hidden switch? - owners manual v. vague, as are dealers I’ve contacted.Cheers Simon

SimonOnly work on main beam, when they come on automatically, or when you “flash” the headlights. They are not set to point downwards like the front fog lights/driving lights now found on most cars, but they are auxilliary to main beam.Hope you weren’t wanting to drive round with just sidelights & driving lights on - not only illegal (unless used when visibility is poor/restricted due to fog etc), but bloody annoying for other road users either facing, or being followed by, the offending vehicle.

Pesky,Toooo right. Tend in the main to be 3 series BMW approx 4-5 yrs old c/w DTM exhaust, Big Bass sound and optional small blue fairy lights on the bonnet for some strange reason. These drivers always have sidelights AND front fogs on at the same time - think it’s cool for some reason. I think it’s Bloo*y annoying.NOW WHEN I WAS 18, had a Mini with big arches, even bigger, louder exhaust and a pair of Cibie super Oscar driving lights which would melt the surround if you turned them on whilst stationary.Sounds like the kettle calling the pot black, but you sent me all nostalgic!

Yep know what you mean guys! - just that they are not working at all, even with main beam on! - wanted to pose with the Nova, Clio brigade - may even paint them in that lurid blue…
