With the lights on I may as well have a neon sign stating someone is home! Do I have to go to the dealer to get the things turned off? - is the only solution? Any help or links or suggestions would be great - Thank you
Welcome to Bimmerfest.

Whoever purchased your X5 brand-new told the dealership they wanted the DRL's turned ON. You can go back to the dealer and let them know you want them programmed OFF. There is no switch for them.
I am fortunate to have unique press cars delivered weekly, but I own:

'16 BMW X5 xDrive35i M Sport 8AT
'15 Volkswagen Golf TDI 6MT
'86 Porsche 911 Turbo 4MT

Gone, but never forgotten... my E70 X5 35d, E90 335i, E46 330i, E36 328i, E70 X5 3.0si, E53 X5 3.0i.
