Angry Battery draw

Hello all, wondering if someone can help with my battery problem. I have a 96 318is and my battery keeps dying on me. When I disconnect the battery and use a voltmeter between the neg. post and the neg. cable it reads 10.9V. I pulled all the fuses and there was no change in the draw. Same when I pulled the relays. The only change i made is to have angel eyes and hids installed by a pro. If they are installed incorrectly would this cause that much of a draw? Thanks.

I think my first look would be with a fault in the DRL wiring of the new lights.
