LOL. I know through iDrive you can turn off the inner DRL's, and once you turn the headlight knob to the third click from the left, only the angel eyes are displayed. Don't really know if that's what you meant or not, though.

But wouldn't the DRL's still be on, along with the AE's? I thought he just wanted the AE's to run.

Or maybe I'm just being temporarily slow and that's really what you said

As long as you turn the DRLs off in iDrive, then only the angel eyes and amber turn signals will be on in the front when you turn on parking lights. Although I just installed the wiring harness (mentioned above), which I think does more of what he's going for (turns on only angel eyes whenever the ignition is in the KEY-ON position).

I could be wrong here, but, if you don't have iDrive, I think you have to take your car to the dealership and have them turn your drl's off.

Yeah I figured, because that's what I did also (deactivated through Vehicle Settings in iDrive). Don't really see the need for the DRL's to be running ALL the time. Unless of course, they're LED AE's instead

Cool, thanks for clarifying. I have iDrive so I wasn't sure.

You can't do it from the iDrive on the 06-08 models. You can go with our Dæos DRL Harness to enable to function all the time.

on pre-LCI E90's the angel eyes came on with the yellow corners. Only LCI E9x's and E92's have just angel eye DRL's.

if your BMW is pre sept 05 build then you cannot turn off your DRL's.

What you do is manually switch ur lights to daytime. In the settings(stalk) turn the DRL off and only the angel eyes will run. But When u have the light switch on automatic they will be off.

Ok Everyone, I too have an E90 that is not equipped with iDrive. I have turned off the DTRL and when I manually switch on the lights they AE's do not go on. I do have Xenon but when the lights are on, the AE's are not

What am I missing here?

I have my angel eyes wired to my footwell light for welcome lighting.

And to the cigg lighter for DRL operation.

Youll need to wire diodes in between to prevent errors/voltage flowing the wrong way.
