Cool Where are the Daytime Running Lights?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I just bought a 2004 X5 4.4 with Sport Package. Beautiful vehicle, tons of fun to drive,a rocket on rails. However, for the life of me, I can not get the daytime running lights to operate. I assumed that DRLs were standard equipment on the 2004 X5. The vehicle has Xenon headlamps and controls for dusk sensor/auto-on headlamps, but I can not find any evidence that the DRLs are indeed operating or even a feature on the vehicle.

Any help would be appreciated.

You have to go to the dealer to get them to program the DRL's to be on along with some other cool features. They would be the inner lights in the headlight housing. Before BMW blessed some of their vehicles with idrive, some of the cool functions had to be programmed at the dealership, and this is one of them.
