Front Blinkers w/headlights: can I turn them off?

I just went from a 2003 330i to a 2001 330i. I have noticed that on my 2001 the front side marker lights stay on with the headlights. I just installed some Angel Eyes that I got from Khoalty that look fantastic. However, when the headlights are on, the side markers take away from the sleekness of the Eyes.

Is there a way for me to prevent the side markers from coming on with my headlights?? Thanks in advance guys.

Yes you must code your LCM to euro spec.

lol thanks for responding, but I guess that was a much more loaded answer than I was hoping for, especially for someone who has no idea what that entails or where to start.

Would I be able to take it to a shop to do it? would it be cost-effective to try it myself? Thanks for responding

From your question & response, I don't believe you're prepared to do the "coding" yourself. An independent shop will be able to help you, or someone local to you who has the program, proper cable, and laptop can change your settings.

it depends on the LCM, your its probably an older version. it can be done with coding via NCS expert as suggested above..
