I have HIDs and don't want to have them on all the time. Any simple fix in VCDS or elsewhere to disable them? Off road use only.

There are just too many to list....
Yep, take the fuse box cover off and reach in and remove the DRL relay. I forget the number on it, but you can feel it click when you release the parking brake. I took mine out and handed it to the salesman before we left the dealer lot. Told him he could keep that part. :)
