Hi, is there a way to turn off the front DRL's but obviously keep the indicators?

I have the front DRL'S on/off option in my infotainment screen, coded.
But as soon as I put the side lights on they come on again but obviously dimmer, they could be coded out as well.

I keep mine on by the way 👌

Front DRL'S on all the time is the law so it could get complicated if you're involved in an accident, especially with your insurance company 🤔

You looking for stealth mode? I've recently taken up cycling, and fitted a mirror on the end of the handlebar so i can see what's coming up behind me. Those with DRL are great, you can see the lights before the shape, but those without are very difficult to spot. Please do me and others like me a favour and learn to embrace DRL's, it's all about other road users.

Why stop there? Get rid of all of the lights if you don't think you need them.

Why would you obviously keep the indicators when you could use your arms?
