DRL is not a legal requirement from where I am, so I searched for ways to enable AE DRL and did it successfully by just changing one item in the NFRM module:
TAGFAHRLICHT_ECE_1 --> aktiv
This alone accomplished what I wanted. Bright handsome angel eye DRL.
One thing I noticed is that the AE is brighter when in DRL mode vs. when the headlights are on. Found this thread but it doesn't seem the guy is willing to share the codes to change brightness:
Does anyone know the codes to maintain full brightness for the AEs w/ or w/out DRL, headlight, etc?
