Daytime running lights...

Can anyone tell me how to keep the tail lights off when running the daytime running lights? Would like to keep only the angel eyes on.

I can turn on the daytime running lights with the Idrive but I want only the angel eyes on without the tail lights.

Honestly, I don't know. My tails are off by default, it's not something I configured.

I have my headlights set to auto, and DRL on in iDrive

Thanks, maybe I'll try that and see what happens.

With my 2011 35d...the taillights were on, when I had my DRLs programmed ON, via iDrive. I liked it though, because at least my '11 had LCI taillamps (but NO LED corona rings).

I'm not aware of a way to do that. The Center Cluster in the taillight IS on when DRL's are activated. It seems to be common for all newer BMW models
