Anyone know if there is an OEM PNP module for Daytime Running Lights used for those markets that require them that can be installed for USA models?

Never heard of such a module. My CLK32k had DRL's wired up when I bought it. Appeared to be a simple tap into the running lights to a switched 12volt power source and a SPDT relay.

Curious how they do it from the factory for those markets that require it. There must be a kit or something. I know you can go aftermarket but I would like to stay OEM if possible.

You might want to ping some Canadian MB owners, especially ones that have imported cars from Japan. As part of the Canadian conformity, DRL's need to be added before the car can be registered.

I do "manual DRL" by using the fog lights, with the city lights wired to the fogs:

looks great, one would need a set of Euro's to do the city lights. So you just turn the fogs on and they light up?

Ever tried a set of leds in the fogs?

Correct... if you want the main headlights to "glow", you need Euro lights with the city light bulb. You can get 5-6 watt halogens that fit in the standard 4-watt city light socket. Think I have the 5-watters in there now.

Nope. I use the stock 55w H1 bulb in the bumper fogs.
