I did this awhile ago so my memory is a big foggy, I believe you need to find the American VIN, and then search the American VIN into the Infiniti parts database and find the BCM # that is associated with that car. The BCM number should be 284B1 XXXXX <--- (this part is specific to the car I believe)
To reprogram the BCM you need to find the DRL Disable menu in Consult, and when you select disable it will ask you for a BCM ID, this is where you need to enter the last 5 digits of the American BCM Part #
The reason I suggested to find an American car with the same specs as your car was to ensure that no other BCM functionality would be lost, wouldn't want your car to start doing weird things.
Unfortunately I am not able to toggle the DRLs on or off, I believe I would have to have my friend reprogram my BCM back to my stock Canadian part # to get my DRLs back.
The rationale behind this whole process is to trick Consult into thinking your car is American, my friend tried disabling the DRLs through consult with my stock Canadian BCM part # and it wouldn't go through, likely because Consult wont allow a Canadian car to leave the lot without DRLs by law.
