DRL Question

OK I have a stupid question.

I've noticed that turning ON my DRL option on the iDrive, makes my angle eyes illuminate brighter. Is this case for everyone else?

Now the question is, I thought by turning on the DRL option would also turn on the inner two lights but on my car it does not. It only makes the angel eyes brighter.

Do you guys know what I mean?


How do I turn on the two inner light (what I though were DRL) on my car?

angel eyes are the DRLs... I've been told they are brighter when they are on without the headlights, and when you turn the headlights on they dim a little bit. But to me they seem to be the same brightness.

I never messed with my H3, but I guess it's for cornering. Only turns on for hard turns under a certain speed. and I think when you're in reverse. I've never seen mine light up since I'm always on the inside when turning the wheel.

I thought the inner lights were the "flash-to-pass" lights that only turn on when you pull the headlight stalk towards you.
