No idea, but that's how it works..

I'm not sure that can be coded on the e90. I was looking through the coding thread, and they were able to turn off the amber side markers, unless you hit your turn signal. That way you can turn on your parking lights and have only the Halos on.

If you want your Halos to be DRLs, you will need to wire tap them straight to the cigarette lighter 12v wire. That way when the ignition is on, the halos will light up. If you want the Halos to fade in and fade out when the car is unlocked/locked, wire tap to one of the foot well lights. That's how I did it on my X5, shouldn't be any different.

Unlock = blinkers blink, halos on
Auto during day = halos on only
Auto during night = headlights on, halos on, corners off

BTM, my setup is like yours. High Beam DRLs during the day, then everything on at night. You can't turn off your DRLs in the in the BC menu btw.

I'm in for the unlock/lock chirp. Hope it can be done with the autologic.

SWITCH on ON -> headlamps and halos are on regardless of day or night
SWITCH on PARKING -> halos on, cluster lights on, healamps off regardless of day and time

In all cases (except when switch is off) my corners are always on. I can't stand it. All I want is to turn off my corners permanently and have them come on only when blinkers are used.
Exactly how my '08 E92 was

Probably, depending on how much money I will end up spending on other stuff. The list is actually pretty big for next spring/summer:

* Intercooler
* Quaife LSD
* Upgrade to GIAC Stage 2
* VERY tempted by Dinan Intake at this point.
* Probably some wheels from ccwheel.com and new tires.

I would just propose an outright trade...depending on the condition of your wheels I might end up paying u lol since I scratched my right front...also minor curb rash on my left rear...

Yeah I read it was part of the alarm coding section. Our cars are equipped with the chirp, it's just not activated.

This may not be a bad idea (trading wheels). We both end up with a squared setup. I'll probably go for th 8.5 inch in the front.

BTW, my 162s are not in perfect condition either. I do have some scrapes here (a gift from the previous owner)

Chirp, as in when the car locks? Mine does that, but only on subsequent presses of the lock button to tell me: "Its locked you moron, quit pressing the damn button."

Will do, but this will have to wait till I get new wheels for the summer.

Just wanted to update this thread, VS will be doing a full coding session on my car today and they will get everything 100 percent squared away for an upcoming coding session for all that is interested.

Here is the list of what they will work on today:
- Euro amber/corner delete
- M3 digital Speedometer
- Roll Windows Up & Down with remote key fob and comfort access (if applicable)
- Fold Mirrors In & Out with remote key fob and comfort access (if applicable & if you have power folding mirrors)
- Unlock doors when car is turned off... No more double pull on handle needed!
- Remove I-Drive "Accept" screen when you turn on car (only on older i-drive units)
- Alarm chrip when the door is locked it will make a noise confirming that the door is locked

Let me know if you want me to add anything

are you asking if it something that can be coded? I think you will most likely have to go aftermarket on that one
