Ok, my bad - I just powered back up as I wanted to be sure - and 2404 is the DRL control (sorry), with 2400 & 2400A being the front left daytime light control (these are on the same wire, so not independent). 240 being the DRL command from the BSI.

Here's the page I think you wanted, but looks like it's inside the BSI:

I'll have a look about for it at some point, im guessing it's going to be hidden above the BSI somewhere rather than integral as it shows it has a 5 way black connector.

Had a quick look to see where I bought mine* - definitely not your supplier, they have lasted quite a while and there is a lot of night driving involved.

*My eBay has turned to Greek. :(
Recently my phone changed to Ukrainian.
And the wife's facebook changed to Spanish.
Must be brexit-related.

You'd have to be driving 2½ hours every day with dipped beams on for 2 months to equate to 150 hours.

I've just checked their data sheet for the Nightbreaker Laser series and there seems to be 2 measurments they use 'B3' and 'TC'.

For the Nightbreaker Laser, the B3 life is 150 Hours.
The TC value is 300 hours.
Some drivers would like to know exactly how many kilometers or months their headlamps will last. But figures like that are impossible to calculate. Lamp life can only be stated in hours of operation, just like a car engine, which is said to have a life of around 6,000 hours.

Who wants long service life, should use a long-life lamp, such as the Ultra Life of Osram.

For lamps, the manufacturers give two numbers: B3 and Tc. B3 indicates the minimum number of hours 97 percent of the lamps (i.e. virtually all) last. After this time elapses, the frequency of failure starts to increase. By the time the Tc value is reached, 63 percent of the lamps likely have failed. Sorry if it sounds so complicated, but it isn’t that simple for all lamps of one type to last x-many hours and then to suddenly and collectively give up the ghost (although premium products do have very similar service lives due to their close tolerances).

Osram puts its cards on the table. The company lists the values for B3 and Tc. For a standard H7 lamp, the B3 value is 330 hours. To compare, a dual filament lamp from the 1960s gave off much less light and failed after around 50 hours. A modern high-performance lamp, such as the Night Breaker Plus, emanates full light for at least 150 hours. For the bluish Cool Blue, the B3 value is 100 hours. If that seems too low for you, you can choose a long-life lamp. These lamp types in the H7 version will give you over 1,000 hours of bright enjoyment (albeit not so bright as the types mentioned before).

Incidentally, these numbers apply for a test voltage of 13.2 volts. Watch this space for information on how a car’s operating voltage affects lamp life.

All this is fantastic info, exact info rather than the "typical" wiring diagrams from the famous and well called haynes "book of lies". Really well done french car forum, you need medals as they are well deserved.
