It is not a "dealer code" and there is no "US mode", it is activated/deactivated through ZCS coding via the LCM on the GT1/DIS tester. I have done this many times.

the problem is that it's technically illegal to get them disabled. so many places won't do it.
pm sent.

just so you guys know, when you unplug your drl you don't lose your highbeams, but rather the ability to flash people because the flashing feature uses the drl bulbs. the only annoying thing about doing it is the little red 'bulb out's will show up on the dash

Its a bad decision to unplug your DRL, when you get them disabled for 50 bucks and still be able to use the flash and not have a bulb out warning.
