So do I run a wire from the interior light to the power to the angel eyes but with a diode in that wire? like

Interior light ---------- DIODE -------------Angel Eye Power

No need for anything else? Where does one aquire this Diode? Halfrauds?

Im not sure on the method of wiring it up myself, and no halfords wont sell you a diode :) you need to try Maplins or Radio spares or somewhere. No doubt someone will point you in the right direction :)

Ok guys just a quick update I did this nice little mod today all it cost was 29p for a diode from maplins lol. Found it very easy and quick, cud do a guide if anyone wants it's I took some pics. Only problem is the angels arnt as bright when used with the interior lights. Would a live straight from the battery to the side light solve this?
