All cars now come with Daytime Running Lights (DRL). These allow your car to be seen from the front, and at a distance. Nothing makes a car more modern then DRLs. Unfortunately since they are recent, you may have a car that has none DRL. But don’t worry, there are many ways and 3rd party vendors to help you update your car to DRL.

Perfect example is the Porsche 911. From 2009 the Porsche 911 received DRLs. But the previous version (2005-2008) did not.
