Mein Auto: 328i
2010 328i Sed.. confused

Ok, I'm super confused of what I have.. I'm a noob with BMW.
Recently just got a 328i Sedan 2010. It has these rings in the front I'm assuming AE? But the headlights are halogens, not HIDs. I asked the dealer to turn off my DRL (reading that it would make my AE only be the ones on, rather than the center lights.) They turned off my DRL, but it turned it off completely, I'd have to switch it to the 3rd switch for my AEs to be on, but that makes me do it manually, and my corner lights are on as well.

Question is: Can I make my AE be the only ones on? If so, how?

Nope. On your car the AEs/Coronas are only on with the the parking lights or headlights. They not able to be used as DRLs. btw - you can turn the DRLs on/off yourself, read the manual.
