Wiring lci angel eyes to come on when locking and unlocking

Hi everyone I've just done the lci headlight conversion and added horizons 20w gold led bulbs (pics to follow when I get chance to give the car a clean)
I know in other models people have ran wires to the footwell lights so the Angels come on when you lock or unlock the car. I've found a couple of diys on the e46 forum has anyone already done this ? Do you think it will work on the e90 loosely following the e46 diy

Thanks

Surely its just a coding thing, not a wiring task?

Im sure thats the extended light package mine has this also.

Not 100% sure but i think for them to run as DRL's and to have them come on/off with lock/unlock theres a module you need.

Pm user makkan as he knows this stuff inside out

for angel eyes to come on when you unlock you will need FRM2 - footwell module 2

you guys who have this feature your car is probs built after March 2007 which they made standard on E9X

Any car before 2007 had FRM1 dont have welcome light feature

have heard of this hardwire stuff but really???

just get FRM2 and get it coded tbh
