they are a programable option on the ecu so you will need to go to a dealer unless you happen to have a car-puter at your house to program them off. the DRLs are where the fake high beams are. you can prob just unplug them or remove the bulbs.

^ he won't be able to disable them with the dealer. as they don't have the option to do that in canada because DRLs are required by law (just like how we can't do the corner delete here). you'll have to find an indy shop that can do that for you in order to keep your highs. otherwise do as digital says and unplug them and live with the headlight warnings
