    Re: OEM LED Driving Lights = $700 OUCH!!



    Just got the lights delivered but its missing the manual. Called the dealership that i bought it from and they said they will email me a pdf copy.
    Comparing it to AwfAxis's pictures i think i got all of the parts. Now to figure out the wiring and how to fit the components to the bumper. There is a big yellow sticker on both of the lights saying do not connect to a 12V source without a driver or it will destroy the light. Wondering if the driver they are mentioning is in the actual control module.

    I was planning on doing the install this evening but ran into another road block. The black bezels they sent me are both right hand side instead of right and left. So now im gonna have to wait till Wednesday or Thursday for that to get the right part delivered. I guess in the mean time i can try to test the lights to get the electrical out of the way.

    I actually bought the OEM from ebay - VPLSV0064. It was from a LR dealership off Florida. I wouldn't put anything other than OEM on my car anyways.

    oem functionality turns off the LED DRLs when the low beam headlights go on (which entails the headlight aesthetic LEDs to turn on as well). so at night it'll look like any other 2010+ RRS.

    i would've preferred to have the DRL LEDs to dim like they do on lexus, audis and other makes, but i don't care enough to tinker around with it. they're just accessory LEDs albeit factory supplied.

    hope this helps!

    Space isn't remote at all. It's only an hour's drive away if your car could go straight upwards.

    Thanks for your quick response. Im planning on wiring the leds without the drive connections and headlight connections to defeat the default setting of it turning off when the headlights are on. I believe AwfAxis wire his the same way.

    No worries at all. I think i lucked out on the price via ebay since the set was priced way lower than other ebay dealership sellers.

    Hoping to get this project done soon.

    You should get the parts off ebay and maybe have the dealer install it. My dealer quoted me 3hrs install actually so you might want to double check with other who got it installed also. Im planning on doing the job myself (crossing fingers).
    Here is the seller that i purchased it from
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Range-Rover-Sport-Day-Time-Running-Lights-Kit-New-/121099236305?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories &vxp=mtr&hash=item1c3213b3d1

    T
    here are also other sellers on ebay selling the same but the above seller has the cheapest price with 100% feedback.

    Thank you for the link, I will ask my dealer if they install it if I bring my own parts or I can ask them if they can match the price ..

    Geez, that dealer owes you one! The electrical is the long pole so get that out of the way and mounting them can be super quick. It'd probably take you until Wed to finish them anyway. I seem to be on the "partial" list when it comes to getting anything regardless of product. Always missing a manual. A part of some sort. It's very frustrating.
