    Is it possible to get the aftermarket angel eyes that i have already fitted as my sidelights, to come on when i unlock the car?
    As in when my interior light comes on?

    Yes, my angels were wired into the footwell lights, see here: (ignore the flickering of the lights, this is because vid was taken on phone)

    The harness will have two trigger wires on it.
    One of these trigger wires will go through the bulkhead in to the cabin and be connected to the live wire on the footwell light.
    The second trigger wire can either go to an ignition on 12v wire for drl or it can go to the live of the parking light and only come on when you switch on your lights.
    I wired my angels up yesterday as drl using this harness and everything works great.
    And your car been a 320d like mine,you wont have the red/white with gold tracer wire that you see in the guides for the 12v power as drl but there is a red/white wire there to connect to.

    Just got my relay harness, no bloody destructions.

    I have figured out:

    The thick wire with fuse goes to jump start point under the bonnet

    Black wire to an earth

    Yellow wire to footwell light

    Have 2 sets of red and black for the rings themself

    But i also have a white wire? Could this be the one that goes to a switched live for DRL or to the sidelights?

    Also i want them as Drl but i have used the sidelight holes for the wires, but where do i connect the wire so as not to display bulb warning?

    As there is one trigger wire and obviously two sidelights?
