They are CCFL angels. I recommend Predator Chromiums. PM Propr'One, I think he sells them. As for them turning on without the lights, I have the same setup. The angels are powered by a relay that's triggered by the accessory lead (whenever your car is on, they are on, even without the headlights being on). To get rid of the Daytime Running Lights (DRL's), you have to get your car programmed to disable this feature. I had this programming done at Cross Avenue Auto for $50 this past spring.

Actually, just saw this post in the classifieds.

Good luck!

Also, I believe the DRL disable programming was only doable on 2001+ cars.

We sell 2 types of Angel Eyes: The Titanium and the Raptor. The main difference is the size of the ring. They both come with a lifetime warranty.

They can definitely be noticed in broad daylight.



Both kits come with the complete wiring harness with relay and fuse protection so that you can hook them up to your accessories and they turn on whenever the car is on (even if the lights are off).

Let me know if you have any questions,

Karim.

Here is a pic of mine;

Chris from e46toronto.ca did the install for me. My car was made in mid of 2001 so the only option I had for disabling the dlr was just unhooking the bulbs
