    Quick sanity check on this, have a Ducato 2012 / EU5 with the DRL option in the menu. Assume one would expect both headlights to have the H15 DRL bulbs fitted and illuminate with the option selected in the menu?
    Think I have mismatched lamps, one has the H15 bulb and DRLs are as expected, one does not.

    The base is a 2012 Ducato. There was one headlight bulb out and seemingly one DRL bulb out. However as per my initial post the lamps are physically different, the OS is a DRL headlamp, the NS a non-DRL headlamp. Assume they should be the same...

    To follow this up the lamps should clearly match. The part numbers for the headlights for a EU5 X250 ducato with DRLs are 1368642080 and 1368640080.

    Me too - but it passed three MoT's (by the same tester!) before it was spotted! Probably due to the "beam benders" I never normally bothered to remove but had at that time as they were getting tatty.
