Yet Another Angel Eye Question

I just searched and couldnt find a straight answer. I have a set of p46's on the way and i want only my angel eyes to run as my daytime running lights. How can i accomplish this? I obviously want them on when i have my new xenons on too lol.


Btw sorry to bother you guys with repeat questions but im getting my car fixed from my accident the 26th and I want everything to be perfect when i get it back.

Sorry again but i did another search for this and all i came up with is fog light ballast mounting. Im wondering where you guys mounted your ballasrs for your hid headlights not fog lights. Pictures would be appreciated.

Thanks

angel eyes are always on from the moment you turn your car on.
Pass side - mount ballast on the washer fluid container.
Driver side - mount ballast on the metal part where the strut bar would go.
Or you can wedge it in between something to make it hold still. there are pillars +airbox there that holds it pretty tight (what i currently have done). I have heard the metal getting hot might effect the ballast.

When you wire them with our wiring harness, they will fade on when you unlock the car and stay on whenever the car is on just like your DRLs. They will also be on when your headlights are on and fade off when you lock the car. If you want the option to turn them off, you can follow our kill switch diy under installation resources on our website.

so my DRL are still going to be regular lights but the angel eyes will be on too? In that case since im getting HID's i might just take the halogen bulbs out, or get those xenix bulbs.

Just get your DRLs disabled, they tend to drown out the angel eyes.

Ok that sounds like a good plan.
