iJDMtoy DRL install on base CM with no factory fogs

Hello All!

I just wanted to submit this thread after a successful installation last Saturday. I wasn't able to find anyone that has installed these specific DRL's as they appear to be fairly new on the market. Hopefully this will help someone out, $160 for these vs $400 for OEM!

I was able to successfully use portions of this video for installing the factory DRL's:

This wiring guide to find the ACC cable in the cabin, its the Gray pin 12 not the purple pin 12: http://www.minicooperklub.cz/navody/...NI_LED_DRL.pdf

Purchased these from iJDMtoy: http://store.ijdmtoy.com/MINI-Cooper...s-p/70-797.htm

Since my car didn't have factory fogs, I needed to purchase 2 of the mounting brackets from my local dealership. Part number: 63129807305. You can also purchase them from ECS: https://www.ecstuning.com/Mini-2013-...16A/ES2136774/

All in all I am very happy with the result and cost savings vs the OEM version. My car didn't have fogs to begin with so I wasn't worried about that portion being functional (the fog portion still isn't functional). I was happily surprised with the build quality for the price.

Looks good and I'll really be impressed if you can figure out how to get the 'fog' portion of that light working too.
