How do I get just the headlight "ring" to illuminate? Is this function available on US models?
Thanks.........................

Good question. Per the manual they only turn on while in motion. I been meaning to ask someone to drive it to see if they do. While just parked I couldn't get them to be bright. Anyone confirm?

Not sure about the LED ring since I don't have the safety or luxury package. You can fool the system to see the daytime running lights by coming to a stop and leave the parking brake off while the engine is running. My wife stayed in the car with her hand hovering over the parking brake while I checked mine.

The rings illuminate with the headlights in the low beam position or the parking light position. The DRLs are on the inner portion of the headlights closest to the grill. (For cars with the led headlight option)
Would be nice if you could wire the rings as DRLs

Maybe it's the luxury package, but the rings are DRLs and there does not appear to be a separate DRL on the inner portion. There's no bulb in there, anyway.

On my US spec Abarth with the luxury collection this is how the DRLs light up. Not sure if the set up is different in other regions.

Parking light position lights up rings only and with the headlights on, rings and low beams light up together

How do I get my car to light up like the white abarth? I currently drive my car with auto on the light switch.

If you want the ring light up without the headlamps in the premium collection lusso lamps, choos the second to last light setting with the twin lamp logo. Auto only shows when driving in the right conditions and full on lights all.
