Ok, so I've been looking into getting a euro switch, and I'm getting confused at all the different terms for the bulbs in the headlights. Here's what I think it is:

Low and high beams (obviously)
DRLs below and towards the outside
Turn signals below and towards the inside
City lights by the low beams
Corner lights

I have a couple questions ('15 S):
When do the city lights come on? I've never seen them light up
Do I actually have corner lights since it's just an S?
Why do people actually want to disable the DRLs? Or maybe more specifically, why do they need to be disabled for the euro switch.
For the "parking light" position, which bulbs will be lit?

Hope I can help. And I really hope this is what the front of your car looks like or I've wasted my time :)



You've got the Low/High beam, DRL and Turn signal.

Corner lights are in the orange bit on the side.

City lights are a small bulb offset in the high beam housing.

When parking lights are on, your city lights, corner lights and rear running lights will be on.



This is what would be on with parking lights on. The white light is the city light, and you can easily see the corner light glowing as well

I have a couple questions ('15 S):
When do the city lights come on? I've never seen them light up
Anytime your lights are on
Do I actually have corner lights since it's just an S?
As far as I know you should have corner lights
Why do people actually want to disable the DRLs? Or maybe more specifically, why do they need to be disabled for the euro switch.
Some people dislike the look of them. It's not necessary to disable them when using a euro switch
