Once I confirm that the Wi-Fi works do you mind if I send you a message to get a rundown of how exactly to get rid of the DRL's?
Thanks for your help!

You download Foccus, run it, read the current config, make your changes (3 in total for HID's) which are just drop down menus. Then write the changes and clear the DTC's. Voila!

I've done it on a few cars, and changed different settings on mine many times without a single issue. If there is an error while writing, just start the write over again.

The best thing to do is use Foccus to change the headlight settings. I can't remember exactly what needs to be changed, but I did it on my car and it works flawlessly.
