Headlights....

Why is it that all export models have the led daytime running headlights on all models, even on Laredos?

Re: Headlights....

Most likely requirements of the countries they're being exported to.

Re: Headlights....

All Export models also have the HID headlights.
They do it to reduce the amount of options and local compliance requirements.

Not all models.... SRT's don't have them from factory as we get dedicated DRL's in the bumper. Some of us LIKE the ribbon lights so much we have modded them to come on with our DRL's (thanks to CLSTech).
