Need Alternative Help

Hi guys.


I'm pretty new to the forum here. Just joined up a little bit ago. I own a 2004 Alpine White E46 325i. (Will create a seperate section for intro and pics later)
I'm having a bit of a issue concerning the DRLs on the E46. I searched and searched, and all i could find is the same answer. Anyways, i need to turn off the DRLs without visiting the dealer. IS there any other way to change the setting on the DRLs (maybe splicing a wire, or installing a seperate switch, or maybe converting them into fog lights via factory foglight swtich?)

Reason for asking this. Im installing a set of LED Angel Eyes, and i dont want the look of the AE to be ruined by the DRLs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks guys

Where are you located in VA? Your DRL can be coded off. There are several people in the DMV that can do it for you.

Post this question in the regional forum. There should be fellow fanatics from around your area, that might be willing to do it for a fraction of the price the dealer is charging you.
