I'm looking at two options.
Lyra Dual function Clicky to them
Philips DRL LED Daylight 8 which run bright when no lights are on, but as soon as the lights are on they dim down. Clicky to them

Cause ... Yes ... I live in Philips Country ... Good quality ... (but maybe I am under the influence of commercial fine-tuning) ...
Ànd ... I would go for the DRL 4... these are bright enough... I actually thought they were tóó bright when I ignited them for the first time...
Ànd ... I think the Dutch Law does not agree with the dimmable ones in the night.. as extra lights...
Ãnd ... Still you have to put your lights on in: foggy daytime / during twilight / in an aria that is darker.. for instances in a forest / you still have NO backlights ... if you drive slow and someone catches up with you ... / during a busy traffic rush-hour ...
So I use them when it is bright and a high LUX in the atmosphere ...
You saw my pics on the other thread...

Toyota (Germany) has "official" lights! NewDLR.jpg 60.94K 32 downloads
Yes LA-LA, that is true... but they are offered without mounting...
And it's very hard work to get something square shaped, on a rounded surface, behind the plastic front, in front of the plastic wheelcovering, into a "cut out" place...
The lights cost:
Tagfahrlicht für Toyota iQ, Verso-S, Auris und RAV4
Hochwertiges Design und zusätzliche Sicherheit zum Nachrüsten
Die Tagfahrlicht-Sets enthalten jeweils zwei LED-Tagfahrleuchten mit Einbaurahmen, Steuergerät und Verkabelung.
Die Preise für iQ und Verso-S liegen bei 279,00 €, für den Auris bei 299,00 € und für den RAV4 bei 329,00 €
So this is without the mounting on the car!!!!
The U K legal req state, DRL should be fitted so their outer edges are no more than 400mm from theouter edge of th vehicle, height above the ground must be a minimum of 250mm and a maximum of 1500mm ,ECE reg 48 ,& mounted symmetrically in pairs & the same hight from the road & same distance from the sides of the vehicle,the lamps must be positioned to ensure the light emitted does not dazzle other road users.

That must have been lost in translated at the Mercedes design department.
I am actually becoming pleased that many drivers now have DRL's in Scotland,
because this last weekend in poor visability, its the only lights many plonkers appear to display.
Does not help that there are none displayed to the rear though once they have passed you after a bit of tailgating.
I wonder the more i see with only DRL's lit, if many of them just think their dipped beams will switch on automatically (like their wipers) when it rains or gets foggy, or if their autolights are just not working.

So do I take it that with the smaller units you dont need to replace anything with load resistors?
I was of the understanding that when the sidelights and or main lights come on then the DRL's have to go off. My circuitry is such that this happens. So because the dimming of the DRL's in your video link take the place of sidelights ,then the sidelights are no longer required and the load resistors fitted instead of the bulbs is just to keep the CAN BUS happy on certain cars.
