Daylight running lights

As I don't like having the headlights on (position 3 on the stalk), I've fitted some LED DRLs which adhere to the outer rim of the headlights and are wired into an ignition controlled circuit. The hardest part was trying to find a way into the cabin on the fuse box side-not easy!
The kit came from Halfords-cost £48 + wire/fuse and tape in stock.
The only problem is the fact that the LEDs stay on at night when the headlights are on but I'm hoping this won't cause an MOTfailure in two year's time otherwise I'll have to fit a cut-off switch.

If you look at the DRLs fitted to the new cars they dim when the headlights are on and also on that side when you indicate as well in normal daylight conditions.
I wondered too if they dont dim or go off when the normal lights are on whether they will say anything at the MOT, I fear they might??
