I understand that now all cars have to have DRLs, what does a brand new Note have as the DRLs. I means which light comes on? I have not seen any new Notes on the road so was wondering if anyone here has one with Nissan DRLs.
Umm??? I think it applies to "new models".. so the Note being designed in... 2007?? they dont get DRL's. A few have fitted after-market DRLs... but tbh DRLs look a bit lame, especially on a hot summers day with the sun blasting out. Afterall... DRLs are soooo yesterday... think back to Volvos of yesterday
Someone with a modicum of sense realised that Dipped headlights are too bright for built up areas, and Proper British Cars were fitted with that equally daft dim-dip system that put the headlights on dimly when just the side lights were put on, so the cars could be seen more easily. (This is the box fitted to Classic Range Rovers that fails and makes the headlights stay on all the time. I expect all of them are unplugged by now)
This sort of Brave Tommy Common Sense so enraged the Eurocrats* that we were threatened with invasion if we didn't repeal that piece of legislation.
So now everyone drives around in built up areas with 300W of retrofitted HID blinding oncoming traffic.
*The same people responsible for the oh so sensible Rear blinding lights fitted now that come on with a hint of mist in November, and stay on until August, and the high level irritation light that makes the driver behind us auto cars look all pink and lovely. (apart from the crinkly screwed up eyes that is
lol, many years ago my dad had an Austin Princess, the wedge shaped one with hydrolastic? suspension which needed pumping up every couple of weeks, it was an Automatic, the lights were the least of its problems.....
that car single handedly ended any chance of him buying a british car ever again. they sure dont build them like they used to......
Funnily enough, I'd forgotten about the Montego I used to have (brilliant car, fast, economical, comfortable, big inside, but spoilt by rust and poor build quality) until I got the note.
The Note just doesn't feel as well built and finished as the old Corsa (and that was built in Germany by EastEuropean labour.....) I wonder if it will still be as good as the Corsa was when it is 10 years old.
