I was driving in front of my wife in her mokka today and realised that whenever she indicated the drl switched off on that headlight???? Has anyone else noticed this or had this happen. I have changed the bulbs to the piaaa extreme white but they are working fine switching between the drl and sidelight option so just seems strange ?.

I thought it may be like that as the drl is right next to the indicator but having always been inside I've never noticed it.

I'm not 100% as I've not got mine yet. It just makes sense that it dims like a few other cars.

When I fitted the mirror indicator bulbs forhttp://www.mokkaownersclub.co.uk/forum/bulb-fitment_topic233.htmlI thought I had bu66ered the DRL, yes indicator cancels DRL on that side.
Also on Automatics DRLs dont light in 'park' when engine running.
