Not to much info was shared as it seems no one here has done that upgrade (understandable). Well the car is back and looks amazing and the headlights are in. Everything works except ..... No DRLs and instead a light out warning for them. Headlights and turn signals all work beautifully (so I am legal for now and could take the car home). However I need to get the LEDs as DRLs. I have access to a friend with VAG. However we can not find out what to change. Is there anyone who by chance knows what to change. Or we are looking for someone with the LED DRLs and VAG that can go in and look at your coding and share with us what it is so we can give that a go. Thanks much in advance!
