Learn something new every day!

Didn’t know our cars have ‘rear’ daytime running lamps!

Interesting, but not sure whether I like or not…

After MY2012 they stopped doing this on most BMW's. It's easily changeable with coding.

Yea for 2012 and after BMW disabled them, I love them - so I enabled them via coding. It's a signature look, you can see its a bimmer a mile away...

It's so funny how different we all are. I really like BMWS Corona Rings Daytime Running Lights, but did not like the rear "tubes" on during the day. My 2010 7 Series had the rear DRL. I was so happy on my '12 AH7, that the rear DRLs were off. I think when they are off during the day, the brake lights are more quickly noticed, as the rear goes from No red and dark, to instant bright, red LED brake lamps. Just my opinion and look preference!
