How do I turn Daytime driving lights off without going back to the dealership? I just put some Halo rings on and Daytime driving lights are annoying.

one option:

dealer can reprogram within 10 minutes.

other option: dig up an article in this forum about particular tricks of e46 codes and stuff, it may be there.

There is no Tip or trick, you must take it to the dealer and have it done there. Unless you can find an independent shop with the equipment to do it.

$50? Your dealership is overchargign you. Ive seen people quoted for like $30-35. It's your only option, sorry.


I dont know e46's in and out, but are the high beam bulbs and the DRL seperate? Hopefully just remove the bulb. Unliekly though seeing as hwo im sure youve alreayd looked into this.

The DDL is just high beam at lower wattage. There is nothing inside the hole on top of the housing. Others say it's just for European specs.

It should definitely cost $30 beacuse I just had my DDL deactivated and thats the price they gave me for 30 minutes of programming labor. However, I got lucky because they dropped the charges due to confusion and new guys working at the dealership.

Yeah i guess I was thinking about aftermarket lights for e36's.

Well really dont pay more than $35

Your stealership probably charges you $115/hr. I geuss that is where they get $50 to do it. Kinda crappy aint it?
