angel eyes

hi all, i bought brand new xenon headlights and they have angel eyes already installed in them, all i need to do is just connect the angel eyes' wires to the car body harness, i didn't know where to connect them, there are two wires one is ground and the other for power so i just connected the ground to a car body metal for ground and the other wire to the low beam headlight harness, and they work fine but i know that is not the right way to do it because i should be able to turn the angel eyes without having to turn the headlight on, i have an 01 325ci conv. any help is really appreciated. thanks

Worked the same as you both in my E36 M3 and my two E39s.

Scary to think I've done the headlight install three times now.

angel eyes

ok when u say parking lights that means the turning signals without them blinking, and u do that by turning the headlight switch once, am i right? ok i tried to do that but the AE kept blinking every time i turn my signal on. any other suggestion, or may be the parking light is something else.

Yup. There should be three wires coming out of the turn signals. One of those three is the hot wire for the parking lights. If they're blinking with the turn signals, it sounds like he married his angel eyes to the wrong hot wire.

^^ What he said. Three wires: one for ground, one for turn signal, one for parking lights.

i know what you r saying about the three wires (one for parking light, one for turning signal and one for ground), but only two wires come out of the turning signal, however i noticed that of of those wires is colored in two different colors (blue and green) and the second wire is only colored with brown.

If you are tapping your parking lights, you will need to tap the rear parking lights because BMW did not wire the turn signals with 3 wires but rather 2 so if you tap the positive they will blink with your turn signals.
