Angel eyes - Needed Help To Kazakhstan!!!

Hey everybody
I am from Kazakhstan (real). I got the 2001 325i manufactured in Germany but for the United States (yellow sides).
And i want to put angel eyes on it
The only problem is i don't know how to do it right.
My electrician told me that it is impossible to put them on American e46 (different wiring).
Could you please tell me how to put on the eyes right (wiring and all that stuff) in details!!!

Thank you in advance everybody!

The install will be almost the same for your car but the wiring will be slightly different given your non-US spec vehicle. You need to tap the accessory wire that gets 12v of power from the ignition when the key is turned to position 2. There should be a wire in the engine bay that does this although it will have a different color than US based cars.

you just install like you would with euro-spec cars. if you search dde diy, you'll find a good one. or go on jlevi's site, click install resources, and then look for the diy there.
