Euro-spec indicators vs DOT indicators
With all this talk about euro lights had me thinking about the euro-spec
I have noticed that in european car magazines that the turn signals do
not light up with the headlights as they do in North America (DOT). I
think that in Europe, the turn signals are only used for signaling, but
here in North America, they have a combined function of signals and
I have euro-spec turn signals in both my Audi and Passat (I opted for
the clear ones), they are made by Hella. Both the indicators were
supplied with a single filament bulb (for signaling only). I wired the
Passat indicators to operate only as a signal. In the Audi, I replaced
the bulb and holder with a dual filament one and wired it for a signal
and running light.
Any opinions on this? Especially U.K. and Europe listers?
Just my thought of the day.
