Well that was easy...

So I took the car in for its first service, asked them to disable DRL's and they did.

Really was anticipating push back or the claim they didn't know how to, couldn't, etc.

Guess it never hurts to just ask.

That was really nice of them. I heard the bulbs burn out fast and you just don't want to drive around with one on at all times.

I had that done when I picked the car up. They didn't hassle me at all. I'm glad you had no problems either OP!

A lot of people find it ugly. Same reason clear side markers are so popular.

Just thought it would be easier to have a tech hit a few buttons and retain high beams

I'm one of those people.

And - In my opinion only motorcycles should run headlights during the day.

As far as the safety thing is concerned, I'm not interested in that debate but you all carry on! =)

IMO, I like the amber drl with blackout headlight. I even think about getting the multicolor one. Looks great.

All DRL's do is help stupid American drivers think that they have their lights on, specifically when it is raining when in fact those are the only lights on... They fail to notice that their tail lights are NOT on thus making the road a little unsafer for other drivers (Include AUTO headlights here too). Another example of how lazy our drivers are which comes second after using indicators/blinkers.

Headlights should come on if the wipers are on... THIS would be a useful way to try and help visibility instead of DRLs.
