Obviously not - it's an "AWDee" - with silly lights, and driven by idiots who think they own the road....
 
Whereas BMW are driven by sensible people, who KNOW they own the road Wink 
 
(even if newer models may have copied the silly running lights) Dead

I believe not mate, it's been the same way with motorbikes for years now, despite the fact it still isn't a legal requirement to use lights on a bike here, during the day.
 
I was pulled in Denmark on a nice bright sunny day for not having my lights on, the officer couldn't believe we still had a choice, they haven't for a few years now.

I drive with my sidelights on regardless becasue it make me more obvious to be seen by other road users who may not be paying attention.  Having the lights on makes you that bit more noticeable.

Diagnosis - I don't feel loved and need to draw attention to myself

Maybe this is why the Danes did it!
Or who ever imposed this silly rule on a bright sunny day (where car lights on or off won't make any difference to noticing a car! All they do is "help" the motorbike that may be in the front of the car NOT to be clearly identifiable)

Poser! LOL
Seriously, if they are "side-lights" - or to give them their correct name "Parking Lights" then that is a complete waste of time because generally you can see the car before the poxy 40w bulbs.
 
If they are Angel-eyes or LED then I repeat ....... Poser! Wink

I suggest that if you drive around with you angle eyes on during the day, don't admit to that, one poor chap who did admit to doing that on here and got the wee wee taken out of him.
