2016 Juke SL Canadian version
So we lost the "gator" lights for the Nike swoosh, but I was willing to accept that for the addition of a form of DRL's. First thing to note is that I'm not referring to the headlights that are always on. I'm referring to what may be considered to be those super bright accent lights many newer vehicles have since about 2010 ish. On the Juke they are up top in the same housing as the front turn signals, as pictured below. However, they have never been bright enough to be seen during the day! They are quite dim and can only be seen at night. So far this seems to negate the alleged safety feature of DRL's and reduce them to mere "accent" lights for appearance.

Just wondering if this is so, or if anyone has them brighter. And yes I have considered that they may not be as bright as so not to diminish the turn flasher, but it is my opinion that the turn flasher is bright enough to not be affected by a brighter DRL.

Thanks in advance for your input.

On my 2015 those "gator" lights only come on when I turn on the low beam headlights. The "gator" lights don't turn on when the DRL are on unless they somehow work differently on your Juke.
Thanks for your reply. I understand what your saying and that's how they worked on my 2014 model as well. However, as of 2016 the gators were replaced with the Nike swoosh style which has white lights on the inside of the yellow turn signal. Those white lights are the ones I'm referring to as being too dim to be anything other than accent lights. I'll try to find better pictures. Thanks for your input!

Here you can see there are no more gators. The orange now only comes on, flashing, when the turn signal is engaged. Otherwise you can mostly only see them from the side as there is a permanent "side light" there. As you can see, the white top lights are not bright enough to notice during the daytime/daylight like most other vehicles (see below). Was just wondering if anyone found a work-around for this.
