I knew it wasn't going to work (and yes, I tried disabling traffic, to no effect). Was hoping someone had figured it out.
I can't think of much that should be different, we played with the ambient light sensor (could get the headlights to come on but not the night mode). Seems really silly especially, at least for me, tying it into the headlights would be just fine.
My guess is that either the CIC firmware does not have the support itself or that an additional ECU (like the instrument cluster-Kombi) has a variable that also need to be coded to make the automatic Day/Night functional in the 3-Series CIC.
I looked into this some time ago and I could not find anything even remotely related in any ECU to make it work, however that was like 3 CIC updates ago.
