    ok now ive just fitted angel eyes to my car! and i got a cheap alarm central locking,auto start . kit, now this wires up to the side lights ive been told, now it flashes the lights when the alarm goes off, now would this not be good for the ccfl angle rings??? and to wire up to the side lights which i now dont have? i have the angel rings as my side lights, would this also effect the inverter ive used to wire up the lights???so basically i would have to wire up to the converter. so it would be a control circuit,running on a control circuit..hmmm..1 hope this makes sense,and you can help on this??

    Not good ata all for the ccfls mate, either on or off. Electrical things don't really like being turned on and off, never mind really quickly lol

    You could get it to flash indicators like normal cars or maybe headlights if you really wanted to (kill your battery if some noob kept setting it off)

    so wiring up to the inicators, or the headlight will be ok?? not drain the battery? if the instructions say wire to the side lights, can it still be done another way? ie . indicators,

    Yeah sidelights don't draw much current so you could easily wire them to indicators instead. But remember if your going to wire it to the headlights make sure you use a relay or you might see your alarm go up in smoke or alternatively find the headlight relay on the car and use that but IIRC it requires the ignition to be on, but have a try anyway
