no i think he means that he'd like his running lights on when the headlights are on (like our cars come stock) ... in europe those ugly amber corners aern't on in conjunction with the headlights but only when signaling and to answer your question yes ... by an USA Spec LCM from your local bmw dealer or one offline, will run roughly between $200-$500 USD. hope this helps!

regards,
tyler

i see. yea that's the best way to do it. if i'd try to do it, i'll probably run a positive wire (16 guage to be safe) connecting from the parking lights in the back and running it all the way to the front on both sides, then use an 1157 socket/bulb, that way you'd have 3 wires for the turn signal, the parking @ 6v (to keep it lit up all the time when the headlights are on) and the turn signal 12v and ground wires. it's cheaper than getting an lcm, but very time consuming.
