Jaguar first with DRL dimming indicators

Graeme Roberts of has reminded me of something I missed in my test of the Jaguar XF 2.2 diesel, and indeed in all 2012 MY Jaguar XFs

The 'J blade' LED Daytime Running Lights incorporated into the headlight lenses dim when the indicators are being used.

Can't say if this is a 'first'. But it certainly overcomes criticism that DRLs can mask turn indicators and cause crashes that would not otherwise have happened.
