LCM settings? Turn off lights when key off? daytime running lights?

So i notice if i forget to turn of my headlights and turn the key off the parking lights stay lit up. Now i know this is a deep cycle bat, however it bothers me. lol.

Is there anything I can do with PA SOFT to make the LCM turn off all lights when key off? This way I can just leave the light sw on all the time essentially creating a ghetto daytime running lights?

From the link below:

BMW was kind of late to the party with something so simple like automatic headlights. the 7 series didn't even get them until 2002. so, since I do not have a rain sensor, and will not be adding one soon, I was worried as to what will happen when the new "automatic" light switch doesn't see a light or rain sensor on my car.

The answer.. it defaults to on/off with ignition.. aka automatic headlights! This can be done to any E46 with or without xenons too.. just order the non-xenon version of the automatic switch.
