wiring angel eyes

Hello

I got some cheap angel eyes off ebay. They dont come with any instructions or wiring diagrams. They are just the 4 rings and their wires. Heres a pic:



How would I go about wiring these? They dont have any type of adapter so I assume they run off of 12v. used: Im no mechanic so everything I do on my car Im doing for the first time.

i'm pretty sure they shoould have an adapter! i got mine, they look like these, they have 2 black boxes (adapters).
umm otherwise, what i did with my friend for e39 - we took the headlights apart, took out the glass lens (cover), and apoxied the ring. Then drillied a hole so that the wires can go through, and 1 wire went to power, 1 to ground

Thanks for the link. I looked it over a couple times so now I know how to install them in the head lights. I did email the guy that I bought them off and he said that they dont have the little inverters or boxs because they run directly off of 12v dc. Now my only concern is wiring them. Is there any way I can wire them to the fuse box and then run a switch from there to the inside of the car or do I have to run them directly to the battery and connect a switch? Sorry for all the questions but this is my first time doing this

When you take off the plastic behind the headlight, you will see a connector plug where the wiring from the parking lights hooks into. The one that comes to that harness from the switch is a female connector (has holes). The one with the brown wire is ground, one is blinker, one is parking light. Turn your lights on when you disconnect that plug and with a voltmeter (or by just hooking up a bulb), see which is parking lights. Then you can just stick the wires in those holes (ground in brown and other into whichever is parking light), and put the male end of it back on (might require a bit of pushing, but it will go over it). This is what I did when I had angel eyes.

Btw, if you don't wanna chop apart your headlight lenses, search BavAuto.com for ligth covers. From close up it looks terrible - I must tell you that, but if you don't wanna risk breaking the lenses, it's the way to go.

Since I didnt get a response, I looked for another way to wire the lights. Would it be ok if I ran the wire directly to the battery and put a switch to turn it off and on? Ill post some pics of what I have done so far.
