    Apparently not for US cars...

    Go up north to canada and it is, I believe...

    EDIT:
    The question is: how hard it is to make ours DRL?

    Can someone with DRL take a pic of the light switch please.
    Also, do y'all with DRL have a light sensor in your dash?

    DRL's are mandatory in Canada, but I don't think the U.S. Mirages have them. (Based on the cars I've seen in the U.S. video revews -- no lights on.)

    Asking this for insurance , get a discount for the DRL . Called agent and had the MIRAGE quoted . It's a little over $30 less than the '08 Yaris sedan with full coverage .

    You can probably add an aftermarket DRL kit.

    They're just a dim headlight setting. Sometimes a separate bulb.

    You can see it around the 10 minute mark in this video - the car is idling and the DRL's are on while the reviewer walks around talking.

    Without the park lights (tailights and amber lights)

    Honestly, I though the middle amber lights were DRLs.

    Yup. That's it. Sounds like you were hoping for something more exciting.
