So you rely on your DRL's at night I guess.

I love threads like this... Pages of useless comments and information with only 1 reply which holds the answer the OP was originally asking for

So getting back to the original posting...

I was gonna ask this exact same question. lol. I'm going to be ordering some depo's or dj autos from ddm soon and was hoping it was possible to disable the DRL's and have just the AE's on. Good to know Rocco is able to do it as well.

DRL's are the first thing that I disable on all my cars... just looks stupid. and DRL's ain't going to save you from the drivers here thats for sure.

That said, I'm not sure but I believe your DRL's can be disabled via OBD programming. If so I should be able to do that for you, I have the software and cables to do module coding.

Look at cops when they drive by. They dont have DRL's either.

Its for others to see the car not for the driver to see where they're going. Plus cities are fairly well lit, hence why retards tend to forget to turn their lights on.

Ya E46 and E39 can, you can use autologic or GT1 to do it.

Not all E46's; some 1999 build dates can't be turned off.
