Default Day Time running lights

Is there a way to turn them off and would it be legal?
I want these because I want to install 100/90watt headlight bulbs
is there a problem with heat?

I am pretty certain that you have to have DRLs. They run on
reduced voltage anyways, and heat wouldn't likely be an issue. I
run 55/100s and haven't had any problems with DRLs.

Any reason why you want 90W low beams? You would have to
change the aim to keep from blinding oncoming traffic because
your lows would be brighter than standard high beams!

You can get cheap H4s from Royal Distributing. Most snowmobiles
use H4 bulbs and they have a good variety for cheap.

Confirmed! DRL are mandatory in ALL provinces. The territories do not have such law. It was supposed t be retro-active meaning that ALL cars, including older ones would have had it. Try and enforce that kind of law in the west... yeah right.

Most OEM DRL systems run the high beam at half power. This means that your proposed DRL wattage will be 50 watts. Keep in mind that OEM relays and wire cannot accomodate the power demands you plan on making of them using the low & high beam settings. Other ppl have had problems, melting wire insulation, blown fuses & the like. Just be careful to not to catch your car on fire.

Good luck.
