I am a fan of daytime running lights (DRL) and am dismayed that the US version of the V does not have a component that will enable this feature (the Canadian version of the V does have DRL). Obviously one could just turn on the headlamps but that would reduce the life of the halogen lamps and also reduce the fuel economy due to power demand. Are these measurable costs? I understand that the V5 has LED headlamps .. it may be that LEDs would solve both of these issues due to very long life and low power draw. I wonder if the 2013 models will incorporate (either or both) LED and DRL.
