My Ride: 2004 BMW 325ci
Just installed angel eyes on facelifted coupe

So I finally got around to throwing my headlights in the oven and installed the multi colored led angel eyes. Only im stumped on wiring. I know I need to power the kit through the accessories wire under the hood as its a 12v power source and thats what the kit needs. My relay has power and ground wires, infrared sensor for the remote it came with but no additional remote wire. I want the kit to come on when I unlock the car and turn off when I lock it. Can I splice the power wire and run an additional power line to the footwell lights? Or will that not work? I plan on finishing in the morning.

Congrats and good on you for tackling this! I need to get around to doing mine soon.. I've been putting it off, but I'm so nervous... ya know, the whole baking and what-not. I've got a set of Orion V4s that I need to install. Do you mind sharing the link/links to the instructions that you followed? What was the toughest part for you so far?

I'm subscribing, cuz I too would like to know the proper wiring instructions to accomplish what you're looking for. Congrats again!

Search for fastm in Google for the Orion install guide. As for your kit not coming with a remote trigger wire it's a yellow wire with a spade at the end just the like the tap wire for the 12v wire to the accessories wire. I will post more when I get home in 2 hours
