Helligkeit_drl %

In V3 Cheat Sheet you have, I have tested HELLIGKEIT_DRL.

The value is in % from 0-99. Factory is 64 and I have put 99. This has now increased my Angel Eye brightness during the DAY only. It still dims for night time. (Which is good, at 99% it looks like I have halogen headlights).

It is quite an impressive increase in brightness. Potentially a good mod for people who put LED's into their Angel Eyes.

Since these Werte values are entered in hexadecimal in E-Sys, 64 (hex) is 100%. Entering 99 (hex) is setting the value to 153%. I guess that's ok, but it may be overloading things.

Ahhh. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I will meter the plugs to see what this is delivering.

I would not increase it that high as the bulbs will not be able to handle it IMO for long term..

+1.

You're asking for trouble, you'll most likely blow your bulb damaging your headlamp assembly, replacing it will cost $1000+ so go back to stock.
