So to be clear, no other light is on when the DRL's are running. Just the hi beams. Also note that when putting the vehicle on PARK, it will turn off the DRL's.
DO NOT allow the dealer to activate your XENON or LOW beams as DRL's. Firstly you will (obviously) constantly have them illuminated and they will burn out or dim faster over time. Second the beam is obviously set to be used for night time driving and as such is pointed down and away from drivers to illumnite the roadway. DRL's are there to catch the attention of any on-coming vehicle which is why they typically (although not always) use reduced intensity HI-beams.
