Do I need a software download for the DRL to function?<p>And yes I know the highbeams are less bright in the US-spec lights but I want them anyway. <p>If anyone is interested I'm selling my euro lights. <br>From time to time I have problems with the lights aiming way too low, I don't know if it's the headlights that are causing the problem or something else. I also get an error message that I can't really translate but it's something like this. "Light failiure contact volvo dealer" <p>Anyone with US-spec xenons for sale?? <br>

Re: changing from Euro-spec xenon to US-spec xenon (Michael from Sweden)

Oh, I am so tempted to do a swap right now. If only I could be without the car for a week or so. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Sorry mate, but good luck! I'm sure someone will be willing to swap with you! <p>As for the software, we need one to go from US to Euro and disable the DRL's, so I would think you would need an update to go the other way 'round.

I'm interested. Would you do an even swap?<p>[EDIT] On second thought, I can't go w/o the car for that long.<BR><BR>

I suspect your problem is related to a 4C sensor in regard to your headlights pointing down on occasion. That will also give the error message.<p>A good technician that understands 4C should be able to fix this, however it may be easier to just swap your headlights than it is to find such a person. Be advised however that if there is a 4C problem causing some of this, that changing the lights will not resolve it.

Sorry, I should have written from the beginning that my car is a D5 so I don't have 4C.
