1. Are you talking about the daytime running lights? No offense but how can you be a member here for 7 years and not come across this?

2. The turn signals operate at about 3v (if I remember correctly) while they are not blinking. When blinking, they are full 12v and this will obviously translate to the angel eyes. Since I always drive with headlights on, I connected my angel eyes to them.

I connected my angel eyes to the accessory wire, so the moment the key's in the ignition they turn on. I intend to wire to footlamps though, but gotta figure out how to do it on RHD car

if you want your AE's to be on from the moment you put your key in the ignition, you should wire it to the accessory wire in the wire box under the hood of your car (according to this guide http://www.fastm.com/m3/angeleyes_orionv2.html).

As for DRLs, yeah you could probably just code it yourself.

Don't get it coded at the dealership. Buy PA Soft for less than the dealer coding cost and be able to do a bunch of other things. As far as the indicators, that may require some advanced coding.
