Daytime Running Lights

have always had them on since new as i like the wicked eye look and they do look better than any other DRLs on the road (AUDI have some ridiculous ones of late)

i felt like a change and went to disable them and shock horror, where i definitely remember them being selectable as an option under ... settings> lights> daytime lights on/off ... the option is no longer there!!!

i hate it when they do that

software version is MV-002.009.047 and TV-002.009.047

question : do you guys have a later version S/W with DRL optional ? or is it an Aussie market thing where we get nannycuckolded into everything we never wanted (for our own good of course)

Hey Papa, just checked 'lights sub-menus' on mine, and no DRLs on/off option available. She's a Quadrifoglio with no updates since delivery in June 2017: Australian spec.

Depends where you are, they may have made them mandatory because of your regain, and sadly they cannot go back to the old software level, although you’d be best to ask the dealer about this, it should be listed in the “fixes” section of the tsb for the software.
