GROUP BUY - Daytime Running Lights (DRL's) from Rostra

I've been searching for drl's for my 07 RRS and this led me to the original equipment manufacturer of many Land Rover parts - Rostra (www.rostra.com).

Their universal drl, the 260-1002-UNI:

the actual drl is of course the spitting image of the originals. The only thing you won't get (unless Jeff can get hold of them) is the mounts for the autobiography bumpers.
The link is here:
http://www.rostra.com/universal-daytime-ru...rostra.php

I rang Jeff @ the company and he's taken the price down to $254 for a minimum of 10 orders up to 15, and if we can get over 15 then the price gets down to $225. The £sterling is nice and strong now so this works out to be between £151 and £133, excluding shipping charges from their warehouse in the States. This is way cheaper than the Land Rover stamped parts at around £495, plus you still get their 3-year warranty.

As this is the early stages, I have to ask him what exactly is included in the box in terms of brackets, but what do you guys & girls think? Who would be interested...the more the better of course ! Recently bought a 2007 RRS HSE TDV6 for a Pimp-My-Ride-Project.

how they will look will depend upon the bumper you have:

they do look similar(ish) to the philips drl 4. i was just thinking that maybe us forum guys want the real deal, without spending £500 (or more with installation) on the originals.

the led's on the headlamp unit are called angel eyes. i'm a little unsure about if these are land rovers own version of a drl, i suspect so. maybe someone can help us out here. for example I know Peachy has the drl's and the angel eyes headlights...maybe he or someone else knows Question Recently bought a 2007 RRS HSE TDV6 for a Pimp-My-Ride-Project.

I also can Michael, but I'm looking for the authentic range rover drl look. I see many cars on the road, like the nissan in the pic, with cheap aftermarket drl's and they look just that...cheap Whistle in fact i think the one pictured on the nissan looks tacky, but that's just me!

of course we can all buy quality, we can all buy cheap, i just think that with a nice car like the range rover sport the owner would want a quality solution (warranty, build quality, aesthetics). Recently bought a 2007 RRS HSE TDV6 for a Pimp-My-Ride-Project.

i admit defeat and of course have knocked this on the head! it appears as though price is a major factor with drl's, which I can understand, esp. as there are many alternative options on ebay for around £50.
it would have probably helped if i had installed a pair myself. I asked them to send me a set free of delivery charges. that's when they stopped responding.
search continues... Recently bought a 2007 RRS HSE TDV6 for a Pimp-My-Ride-Project.
