No, once you cut the thin yellow wire, connect the side that comes from the relay to a switched 12V source... the other wire can just stay there (just tape it up).
I just noticed you have a 1994 E36, this method will not work for you. As I mentioned in my OP, this is for late model (96 and newer) models only.
The older models don't use a relay, the DRL's are hardwired in the fusebox and it's a PITA to do (I've done it once).
