It's beyond me why many of the States I've visited don't require day time running lights. The lack of day time running lights is VERY obvious to us Canucks when we travelling south of the border.
I thought that's the point of daytime running lights - to run during the day. That's different than headlights that turn on when its dark out. If BMW engineered the headlights to come too early and shut off too late, then maybe they should have taken it a step further and allowed you to turn off that feature through iDrive.

I think it's kind of silly to have headlights turn on in bright daylight - almost embarrassing. Talk about over engineering something. BMW should come up with a software patch. Just think about all the wasted energy going into powering the headlights that shouldn't be on in the first place.
