In response to this and the others who've chimed in -
I want the DRLs because they are automatic, ALWAYS on. It's the law in Canada, and since I help Canadians import these vehicles from the USA into Canada, it would be nice if they had the DRLs, as it was a major hassle/expense to install them after the fact on the previous LEAF.
"Automatic headlights" only come on when the vehicle deems it dark enough to warrant them, if I'm not mistaken. And please don't tell me to "cover the sensors, etc.," as that would be illegal and another avenue for liability. Doing it properly and legally is the only way to handle this.
When some of the engineer types get this car and start fussing with DRLs, we can start sharing some ideas to solve this issue. We're literally talking about $10 in parts if they were factory installed, and just about every new car I've seen in recent memory has them, so...???
