DRLs are required in Canada, correct? If so, I assume this means you don't have the option to turn off the DRLs via the BC? If you don't, then coding changes are needed to get rid of them as far as I know.

You can turn your drl's on or off through the setup options on the dash or through idrive...at least here in the US.

The DEPOs do not do that. Only with the parking lights will you have them "On" with your "city lights". To get them on with nothing else would require either extra wiring or some reprogramming. I am sure AW128 (Dave) would know a little more as there was a thread circulating about it, but not sure what became of it.

I believe on the E90 forum for the 3 series they have "almost" found a way to make use of it via code instead of resistors and wiring. So you may be in luck, but would require a little programming. So that would be your only choice since you hate wires as do I!

Can surf around the thread to find more info... http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...postcount=1559

What you want is to use the Depo AEs as the DRLs, if I'm not mistaken? This is supposedly possible via coding changes. I haven't attempted the coding change on my car, but I'll have a look through the coding to see if the proper lines exist.

that's right, use AE as DRL

I am seriously thinking buying new leds for the angel eyes.
I am not so sure how to insert those leds with the headlight is already installed on the car.
My hand dont fit them inside to fit bulbs into those holes...
any tips?

These pictures are real close to what you'll see in the real world. I played with the flash and f-stops of my camera until it captured what my eyes see. The color in my pics is very accurate. At night, they look very intense. During the day - not bad at all, especially considering the price and the fact that I didn't have to open up the housing. Plug and play, and they throw no codes.

One thing I noticed is the LEDs are a bit longer than the stock bulbs, so the end is pressed right up against the backside of the angel eyes.. I really had to push them into the housing to get enough friction to hold them in place. It's really easy to pull the plug back out of the housing.

There's 8 bulbs per headlight, and they're all on a christmas tree light string. Pull them out of the housing, change the bulb, plug them back in.

If changing christmas tree bulbs is confusing, best to pay someone.

Invest the time to take the headlights out!! I changed all the LEDs while the headlights were still installed, however, I had to use forceps and a dental mirror... it was just an ass pain.

When you buy new LED bulbs, do NOT get the bulbs that forward fire... get the ones that someone linked in this thread that do side fire... otherwise, you'll get that crappy blob effect.

Brother just got the Bavarian Exclusive DEPO projector headlights with the LS3 rings (220 LEDs) for his 2006 325. One picture is in direct sunlight and its ridiculously bright. The pics don't show up well on iPhone at night because they are too bright haha. But from start to finish of putting them on.

They should be coming out with a DEPO set with the LS1 rings soon...

Eye candy -->
