Depo p46 w/AE Installation question

So I have a pair of Depo projector46's sitting here, with HID and the angel eyes installed by the manufacturer / reseller and I'm a bit confused. The installation instructions do not explain what I'm supposed to connect the angel eyes to.

There are three sockets (the high, the low and the angel eyes) coming from the back of the housing. Its fairly obvious what the high and low (or low ballast in this case) connect to.

Has anyone done this install that can shed a little light on the subject (no pun intended). This is an M3 fwiw.

i have not done this but usually the angle eyes will connect to the "park light" connection. thats usually the light that comes on when you switch to the first step of your headlight switch.

The feed is a socket, not a bare wire, so I assume it connects to something directly.

Is there a way to connect the Halos to turn on ONLY with I turn on my parking lights? I don't want to have them 'ALWAYS ON' when the car is on.

Smile Installation

Hey Im new to the forums however I have a question regarding the p46 headlights offered by depo. What happens if I do not "tap" the wire to have the AEs always on? and instead just plug n play the lights? would the angel eyes only work when the headlights are actually turned on? or would the halos not work at all? thanks!
