    you still need some sort of resistor to make them dim, even if you come off a manual switch inside the car

    a dimmer switch is just a variable resistor,

    so in the link i gave you, if you look at the wireing diagram all that will replace is the variable resistor

    Unless you wire you angel eyes to run all the time through it, and run it in to the dash some how and when you want to dim them turn them down. which in my mind would be a bit of a pain in the ass and you would soon not bother with turning it down all the time
