You can see a turn signal just fine with the head lights on...

I am super satisfied with my Echomaster DRLs. They are very bright, work perfectly and look good.

Biggest problem with those is when grill options come out "hint hint" then you cant change

I dont have any interest in changing the grille, but maybe that is an issue for others.

So, is DRL something the dealer can tell your BCM to "turn on"?

yes, that's correct ... for all u.s. foci (non-fleet...fleet comes w/ them on already i hear). Be aware, tho, ALL your exterior lights will be on all the time....
annoying, imo...
