DRL Delete?

So, would it be smart to delete daytime running lights? I'm not stupid, I know how to turn my lights on when I need to. Or should I just make it so my running lights are just my markers. I am doing this because I'm going to install HID's soon - within the next month or two.

depends on your laws locally i guess. here, there is no requirement to drive with any lights at all on during the daytime

It say go for the DRL to marker idea. I don't have DRLs I'm guessing because It's a 89 but I like to turn my parking lights and fog lights on anyways. I think it looks aggressive, so that's why I say that.

Yeah it's Canadian law to have DRL's. Only when they are imported though. No one checks for them now, as far as I know.

I want to change them over to the indicators if anything, or just turn them off in general. As I said earlier I know when to turn them on lol.

There is a DIY on how to do this on a local BMW club. I will try to copy and paste it onto here. It's a very detailed DIY but sort of hard to understand if you don't understand wiring diagrams.
