Gustav, Great pictures, a few of them were my background awhile back.

I believe the easiest way to do it, is to put electrical tape over one of the double filament contacts on the side-marker bulbs. One of the contacts is going to be for the turn signal, and the other is going to be for the parking lights, which is the one you want. Best of luck
First off, sorry Gustav but I am about to add a little clutter to this thread, because I could not reply to "Tho///a5's" PM due to the fact that I am a little weakling in posts here.
Okay Tho///a5 I'll try and explain a little better, with the help of a picture. Note: The picture is not of the actual bulb for your car, but is similar, and will just be used to help with the explanation.
Alright, so you see the two contact pins on the very bottom of the bulb? Well all you have to do is figure out which contact is for the parking lights and which one is for the turn signals, and cover up the parking lights one with electrical tape. You will do this by trial and error.
1. Pull out your corner light bulbs
2. Cover up one of the contacts with electrical tape.
3. Plug the light back into its holder and turn the parking lights on.
If it doesn't light up, then you got lucky on the first try haha. Then your all set, just reinstall the bulb into the headlights holder, and repeat for the other side. However, if your not so lucky and it still lights up that means you covered up the turn signal contact. Just swap the tape to cover up the parking light contact and recheck that now it does not turn on when you switch on your parking lights. Then your all set!
Hope this helps.
Sorry again Gustav. Just trying to help.

"I look at it like this. Owning an M5 is kind of like dating a slamming hot big-t...ed blonde, who is a pain in the *****, drains your cash, but screws like there's no tomorrow. Owning a Honda Civic or the like, is akin to dating a girl who is fat, ugly, smells a bit where she shouldn't, is a cheap date and doesn't screw at all (you don't mind). So yeah, I'll take the blonde." (Courtsey of Jetpilot718)
