Daytime Running Light

I bought my car here in Canada, it's 14 Gran Coupe 650xi

however for some reason i dont have DRL,

all the bulbs and lights are fine and should be mandatory in Canada, however it's off during the day, no option in the iDrive either.

anyone experienced this before?
thank you

Surely can't be right? DRL is standard?

They should definitely be working. They are required equipment I believe, but regardless they are standard equipment. Do you have the LED headlights?

there is a thread running on another BMW forum about drl's not working and maybe the headlight module failed rather than faulty lights themselves. Have you ran a diagnostics to see if any fault codes are shown.
