My Ride: 2004 325i sport
Fog lights + Angel Eyes =.....???

Okay, so I went through the wonderful process of clipping on some Angel Eyes (CCFL) to my beloved 325i. The harnesses and rings are hooked into the lenses and are very stable– the wiring is where I'm having an issue. The kit I bought came with no relay, do I have 2 pairs of positive and negative terminals free floating in my engine bay. I want to splice all of the wires in a way so that i can attach//power them with the cable in my ECU that runs to my fog lights.

1. Would this be possible
2. What is the color for my fog light cable???

1. Still better to use a relay harness.
2. Tap the trigger to your actual foglights wires.
3. ????
4. Profit.

I would not install angel eyes at all without a relay, ESPECIALLY CCFL which are known to go on fire. Sell that crap and get LED angel eyes from one of the sponsors.
