Turning DRL off on 2011 328xi E90
 
Hi,

Do you guys know a place in the GTA area where you can get the DRLs deactivated. I know its the law but I'd like to compensate that with having the angel eyes running as DRL without the high/low beam running at the same time which is currently the case.

Let me know if anyone was successful in doing that.

Thanks

^^ Well I think he wants the same look as the other BMW's out there where the AEs are the DRLs and his other lights off.. I think older models have both on at the same time or something..

Hey just wanted to let you know I coded a 2007 E90 this past sunday.. like you he had his highbeams as DRLS and his Angel Eyes only come on when his headlights are on (lowbeams). I disabled his highbeams as DRLs and then enabled his Angel Eyes as DRLs like most of the other BMW models. Let me know if you are interested.. you can pm me with any questions.

Generally speaking (as i have imported the Black 750iL below), the Car will be set to CANADA meaning you will need to code it for USA then allowing you to code the lights on the key instead of hard coded no matter what key you have.

I coded mine on the key (which means when i get a new key, DRL are off, BMW know about it, no one will know as there be on when its checked by RIV in the next few days).
