This is very true...

Also I'm not worried about my non white halo lights as I am going to return my lease in a few months and pick up a a new X5 which comes with the new halo white lights

To those of you running "White" H8-style angel eyes bulbs, which have a bluish envelope (for example:, do your angel eyes have any trace of blue in the daytime with the lights off?

Halos as DRLs

I have an 08 E65, but the Halos do not functions as DRLs.
If I want the Halos on I have to switch to manual lights and first click on the dial.

Is there a way to leave my lights set to auto and still have the Halos come on as DRLs?
