2 angel eyes questions - DRL [ again :( ]

Looking at the LCM

http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/attac...5&d=1109182973


Essentially- this is what I want- yes 2nd grade- I know.



It currently in position 1, next is 2, next is 3 .. 4 etc etc.

In position 1 is currently AUTOMATIC meaning when the night time comes on, xeonon come on.

2 means DRL are on.

3- this is where I want my angel eyes to be on ONLY- which wire to I tap into? Is it posible to have the DRLs turned off here? /fogs

4 - xenons only / fogs


Also, how do I remove the DRL BULB itself? I don't know which way to turn it- dont' wanna force it and end up breaking it. Also searched and everything-

You will need to wire it to the parking lights for that operation. Unfortunately, the only easy way is either to wire them to the rear parking lights or ECU parking light wire as the front turn signals do not have a separate parking light wire to tap without having them blink with the turn signals.

As far as removing the center bulb, it's an H7 which takes a bit of force. There are two tabs around the base of the plastic bulb holder that you can hold on to and twist to the left (leftie loosey) and pop it out.

I'm probably just going to just remove the bulb and drive around without them. Instead of going to the dealer and being charged $40+..
