When I had an E46 M3 I had to go to the dealer to turn off the DRL. I guess you want the opposite and have them turned on? The dealer will charge 1 hour labor to do it.

You can also check out some shops in your area, perhaps they have the equipment to program it.

There's also a coding thread, not sure if it works for an e46 but you can check it out anyway:

Good thing the E9x cars give you full control over the DRL.

Coding the LCM module is the solution. Look for a local with coding expertise. It should take no more that 10min to do. I thought that DRL's were the law in Canada. Did you buy a US spec car?

Just an FYI, I know the thread is a bit dated...but we do DRL modifications/CDN or US spec coding for the E46 platform for a small fee. Call or email us for any inquiry.
