Take it to the Dealership, they turned mine off for free :-) (they were supposed to charge me $80 but eventually did it for free)

sorry to hijack the thread... but I'm just curious... I personally WANT DRL in my cars... I think it helps visibility on the road (them seeing me) since it rains a lot where I am...

in your case, what is the driving reason for having DRL off... thanks for answering my curiousity...

Our model year did not come with that feature. The 04-05 was made for the drivers who have some sense of responsibility Sorry my other 6er friends but the 04-05 were made for the drivers who know the code of the road. We turn the lights on when weather and visibility is bad. JUST KIDDING GUYS so do not beat me up on this one, just defending the earlier models.
