So go to BimmerCode and see (check the options list).

You shouldn't do it actually: it's a nice, useful feature that makes your signal more visible.

I know you're right ! But i wanted to see how it does look...
I think it's only possible in expert mode there's nothing about that option in normal mode

Well, I am not sure I should tell you this, but you can use the parking/side lights. Just don't make them bright like DRLs at night!

https://bimmercode.app/cars/f20/ (in the app: "Front Electronic Module"), "Angel Eyes", "Angel Eyes brightness parking lights".

My sidelights don't dim when the turn signal is on. I didn't bother to check the setting, but they are quite dimmer than the DRLs. Say, they are dim already. Why would they dim? Perhaps, you shouldn't touch the "expert" mode with a long pole.

My problem is the front DRLS that dim while am doing my turn signals it's not cool at all, i know that BMW did this so that the turn signals are more visible to other drivers... i wanted to desactivate that feature so there will be no dimming at all what so ever

It looks like its only possible with LED headlights. To disable that you need to have FLE module.

Hello again Guys,

So i managed to find a coding to stop my DRLS dimming with turn signals on, for those who don't like this feature do this:
go to expert mode in FEM in bimmercode then look for :

MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_V_L_PWM_LEVEL_2 (for the left side)
Set the value at 64 wich is 100%
The default valure is 0C (12%)
Then you do the same thing for:
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_V_R_PWM_LEVEL_2 (for the right side)

By the way Tagfahrlicht is day time running lights in german 😁
