Coded Angel Eye brightness to 100%

Just coded the Angel Eye brightness from 8% to 100%

When the main beam is off the Angel eyes are a lot brighter and I suppose look a lot whiter as well.

Also when the main beam is on the Angel eyes do not dim but stay at 100%

Have driven a couple of hundred miles at night and no one has flashed.

Personally I think it looks a lot better but be interested to hear what other people think who have done this.

I can't add pictures at the moment as not sure how to stop the photo just showing glare

I thought DRLs went off with dipped beam not main. There is no point in avoiding dazzle with DRLs if you have your main beam on.

Might you get an MOT failure if your DRLs don't turn off when they are supposed to? I guess you can always code before and after the test if you need to.

Maybe my definition of beam types is misleading

Angel eyes should dim on driving lights which now they don't, I call 'driving lights' main beam and high beam is the one where the blue light comes on.

MOT not for 2 years so yes would code back in a few mins
