When I had my VW Golf I had some minor hesitation problems, etc. The service manager asked what type of gas I was using - Shell. His response was to switch to anything else before trying any mechanical work on the beast. I switched and never had the problem again in 4+ years.

disable your DRL's. I'm not a perfect driver. I need every possible opportunity to see your car as early as possible. DRL's may not help you, but they help protect me from my imperfections.

Why do you want to disable your lights? They are designed as another defensive driving assist. The cost of replacing more bulbs is a lot cheaper than an accident.

DRLs will be useless next year anyway, because all cars will have em, and we'll just get used to it. Personally I hate em. I'm a smart enough driver that when I feel that I need my lights (which include tail lights) on I will flip the switch. I've seen too many people drive w/o their other lights on because their DRLs are providing enough light, not to mention if they are gonna do DRLs the rear markers should be illuminated also.

Didn't know that I was bringing up such a touchy subject. Sorry about that. In my line of work I drive without headlights in the "company car" sometimes even at night. It's kind of a habit to want to be able to control when my lights are, or are not, on.

bc3274, the reaction is just because we've beat the subject to death. Select "see all responses" near the top of this page and use your browser to search for "DRL". Also check the other Subaru Crew topics; it's in here somewhere. Wish I had a link handy for you.
