I'm guessing its the DRL?

The worst part is I just dropped one of those skinny flathead screwdrivers into the engine bay (to the right of the headlight compartment). Would taking off the bumper even help me locate it?

This just killed my day...
Yeah, I just installed the Lux last night in my E90. Took over an hour. I know what you mean about the midget hands. How tight did you get the new bulbs to screw in? The ones I removed turned about 30 degrees but I could only get the Lux turn 10-15 degrees. I couldn't get any leverage on the bulb.
