Default Where to wire these angel eyes

I got sick of leaky, damp, yellowed on the inside, scratched-up headlights, so I bought a new pair. What an upgrade! I can't wait to see the road at night!



Installation was pretty easy. Just had to transplant the wiring harnesses off the old ones, figure out why my high beams were dead (bent a pin in the connector), then figure out why my radio was dimming instead of my turn signals working (connector was upside down).

Now for the tricky part: how to wire up these angel eyes and LED'*. I'd like them to act as DRL'*, but I don't have a clue how to wire that in. Is this even possible?

I know the DRL'* just run the low-beams at about 80% power, so I'm expecting to do some cutting and splicing… somewhere.

the easiest thing to do in that case is use the low beam to control a relay, they would be on when the low beams are on but the relays normally dont care if its 80%
