    LOLOL I think he meant angel lights.

    Why do you want it to come on with the ignition? It's not that difficult to turn the headlamp switch once to the left.

    Mine are like that but mine came with a relay with 2 trigger wires, one goes to ignition live and the other to the footwell lights so the "angles" come on with the interior light, and hence on unlocking the car with the remote.

    Its nice having them like this as they effectively become DRLs that way, plus I have a switch to turn them off if I so wish.

    Another alternative would be to simply remove the sidelights and use the Angels as sidelights.

    You could run a 12v supply from an auxillery supply I.e radio powersupply (yellow cable maybe) that would mean they will come on with the key...

    The only downside to doing it like that is if you ever sit in the car and want to listen to the stereo then the angels will come on as well.
    Thats why I also have a switch to turn them off if I want. In my case the switch is in the ignition trigger wire to the relay that works them and not for the power, so even if I turn them off they still work with the interior courtesy lights.
