Welcome aboard! Always glad to see new members coming in.
I hadn't thought about the DRL thing, really. I do know, from watching reflections in the car in front of me, that the DRL stays on when the turn signal on that side is working. That's different from most cars.
You will have to go aftermarket for remote start on a '15, I think. '16 & later can do it from the phone app.
