Did you find somewhere online that said how to do it, or use the manual? If they're anything like the turn signals in my car (facelifted coupe), they're going to be a bitch. I'd rather take the entire headlight out to change the turn signals than trying it w/out taking the headlight out.

I bought mine off eBay too, will let anyone interested know how long they take to get here...

Looking forward to changing the yellow colour to white. I love the DRLs, they should be even better in white.

The DRL are powered by the H3 cornering lights, I believe?

No they are separate, DRLs are the same as "angel eyes". They are called "coronas" in the manual and set via the "Daytime/light (cant remember) Running Lights" settings in iDrive. They come on at full strength with the lights off or in the AUTO setting and half strength with low or high beams on. The cornering lights are separate, found a good diagram here:

Yeah, I know what the cornering lights are, but the manual is unclear as to which lights are functoning as DRLs. I'm not real fond of the really yellow dimmed DRLs. I prefer to manually turn the "halos" on when it is overcast or at dusk, but not dark. In the diagram, the caronas or halos are powered by the H8s, and the cornering light has a separate H3s (not shown), I believe. Thanks for the clarification.
