Daytime Running Lights

I've just imported a 1993 E36 into Finland. Daytime Running Lights are required by law. Not difficult to do with a couple of relays and a splice or two. BUT - is the car already wired for this anyway does anyone know?

No. Daytime running lights weren't available on the early models.

If you have ellipsoid headlights, I'm pretty sure there is a socket for the bulb built into the high beam reflector. At least that's how aftermarket Depo's are made. But you may have to run wire from the headlight socket.
