yEEpEE! my specialty (wiring)! here is my suggestion, for TRUE daytime running lights this means that the lights are ALWAYS on while the key is turned, right? well on most all car stereos, starting from late 80s and up, there is a wire that leaves power to the unit for keeping radio stations and last played tracks stored until the unit is resumed. In most cases this 'Always Hot' wire is RED, but in bmws they use different colors, i'm not exactly sure which wire this is, but it should still be either yellow with a stripe or red or some color that stands out from the others along with the power and ground wire.
here is basically what you need to do to wire them this way:
1.) loosen stereo unit and pull it out of the dash far enough to see the wires.
2.) find the wire i mentioned above.
3.) splice into it and join in the hotwire to the angeleyes.
4.) use electrical tape and cover all uncovered wire.
5.) put stereo unit back into place and tighten screws.
6.) enjoy your new setup which will turn the on everytime you turn the key to the 1st or 2nd position and on.
...i did this with a tv screen i have hooked up to my modified ps2.
*NOTE you must connect the ground wire either to a ground wire with the stereo or a bolt under the hood that touches the frame, very easy.
hope this helps everyone, any questions about this method please im me!
