If i get mtec angel eyes, what else? Pre lci

I have an 08 pre lci sedan... with the xenon adaptive headive headlights.

i plan on geting mtec angel eyes and am wondering what else I should do...

I have my drl's. on but should prob turn them off right? Should I get new fog or headlight bulbs so they match or leave them go?

I want my angel eyes to be on when I turn my parking lights on... would like the drl on without not turning any lights on, but then drl goes off and angels on I turn on the parking lights if possible?

Dos DRL Harness might be what your looking for.

you should code your DRL off completely.

I actually want to do want to completely turn off my DRL's...

when i have my lights "off", i want my DRLs to be on. Normal/standard DRL function...

however, when i turn my "parking lights on", that is when i want my DRL's off and just the AE's on... right? having the DRLs and Angels on at the same time takes a lot away from the AE's correct?

What about when I have my headlights on? do the MTECs "dim" like the OE AE's eyes do to be "not as bright, but still on"

I do NOT want to replace my DRLs with the AE's so I do not think that harness is for me... i want to be able to turn my AE's on and off with the parking lights.

I'm confused, it seems to me that you have a xenon adaptive headlights and a seperate DRL and AE's? Did I get it right? Or are you using your parking lights as a DRL?

i do have the xenon adaptive headlights...all my headlights do is turn with my steering wheel.

i do NOT have seperate DRL's, just whatever DRLs come in those headlights.

my DRLs are ON all the time - with my lights in the "off" position, my DRLs are on... when i turn my parking lights on, both the DRL's AND AE's are on.

You can turn off the DRL without code by using the carputer...

i realize that...

but, i want my DRL's to still be on when my lights are "off" ... but when turning my parking lights "on" have the DRL's go off.

... this is what will look best, atleast i think ... as far as looks with new AE's, having the DRLs OFF will look better... right?

when i turn my parking lights ON, i want all the normal parking lights to come ON except the DRLs < which is what happens now.

maybe it is too much trouble to mess with the DRLs? and i should just turn them off? ... i want them on as a safety feature though...
