This is courtesy of 30yrVeteran on the 6 board. I offer this as a simple alternative to solutions already posted.

The 5 blade relay operates as follows:

1. When the headlights are off but ignition is on it provides power to the AE's from the constant 12v source that you are tapping into, Driving Lights activated.
2. When the headlights are on it switches the power over to the BMW factory AE power (to avoid error code)
If I wire up this relay to the AE's, do I need to worry about any error codes?

The relay/harness will not cause any errors. If you can find someone local who can code them for you as DRL's, you'll find that solution far more preferable.

But the relay setup does work fine without error codes.

I though you could not code a 2006 for DRL's
And if you can code it for DRL, is it permanent?

You can if the month build had an LM2 module. My experience shows its not a particular month. It seems to be inconsistent

You have to have someone read it. That's really the only way to tell. It's located under the driver footwell, on the left side. Looking at it won't help you unless you can determine the part number. And I'm not sure that would be conclusive evidence unfortunately

Just to be clear. 06 models ( based on month build) can be programmed as long as it has the newer light module ( for the ae's as DRL's). Just reiterating, although many believe the LM2 was cut in on 07 models only, I have seen, and programmed, them on mid-late month manufacture dates of 06 modules as well

Just going to require someone who can read it for you to know for sure
