"nope they're not DRL's, they are on their own switch. Didn't think of connecting them to the ignition switched live wire when we connected them up."

"Those light below the bumper line that are on - are they DRLs? if so, how are they wired, do they go off with the headlights going on or are they just wired to come on with the ignition."

phaeton update

Posted on November 19, 2015 at 22:53 12 Comments

We measured the caster angle earlier in the year and noticed each side were not even the same and i cant remember what the actual measurement figure was but it could definitely be improved. Last weekends little project was to make some spare wishbones we had adjustable.…

Any suggestions or good pictures for rear end styling?
