I thought the DRLs are simply the regular headlight bulbs run at lower voltage. (I never use them...)

If your headlamps are out, just replace them. If your DRLs just all of a sudden turned off, look at the settings in the iDrive menus.

Angel eyes 'could' be considered DRLs. Is that what is out?

H8 is the part #. Remove the inner cover on the back of the light and you can see everything, not hard to do at all.

Once the round cover on the back is removed, literally one twist of the bulb and it pulls right out. You'll notice two small white "clips" on either side of the wiring that you have to pull back with your finger once you pull the bulb out to remove it from the wiring.

Very simple...I installed new LUX H8 v3 bulbs this past weekend. Took me about 10 minutes, and I'm not mechanically inclined at all!!

blue dragon will become famous soon enough
One of mine burned out, local dealer wanted $52 (including 13% tax) for the H8 bulb. I almost fainted. I was just going to pay for it myself and change it, instead of making an app't for warranty
