How does every other automaker get them in (MB, BMW, Porsche, Audi, Lexus, Acura, Infiniti, Mazda) ??? Doesn't seem like a good explanation to me.
Looking at the official USDM specs for the STi here:
It shows that there are NO daytime running lights on the STI model. I suspect the HID lights have no DRL function at all, and this is the reason that they are not being used in Canadian models.
