    Managed a few months ago to get it working with the repair wire etc. Everything works fine but when I select DRL the main lights come on and im able to select dip/main.

    Any idea how I can keep the DRL to just the LED's?

    Do you have auto lights? That sounds like the problem I had when my car was coded for coming home/leaving home.

    If you don't have auto lights I believe the headlights come on with the DRL's (and as such I got the coding removed straight away!)

    Nope, dont have auto lights. Im sure I read somewhere that facelifts had slightly different region coding or something?

    Quite possibly cause you have hacked the ch/lh mode it now thinks the drl position is related to auto lights thus they all come on, your best bet is to have the auto lights system fitted & thus this should resolve this as the drl's would have a seperate switch, ch/lh relies on auto lights anyway to work properly, I can install auto system, pm if interested.
