My Ride: 2006 325ci
Aftermarket Angel Eye Wiring

Ok, My 2006 325ci I bought this month has aftermarket headlights with built in "Angel Eye Rings". Iím putting in a HID kit and noticed the AE are wired directly to an external plug. My question is how do I wire these since the car is not hardwired for AE? I see some AEs have an external exciter to work, are others just straight to 12V connections. The closest source is the cornering lights but this would make the AEs flash with the turn signals, any thoughts?? - John

Well my AE's are wire to the corners, and I kinda like the flashing. and if you try to just go straightout with a 12v, you would need to get another switch, which would make your car look raggedy.
