DEPO headlight wirring

ok,

Just replaced my DEPO smileys that I got from bavauto with DEPO angel eyes I got off ebay...

I thought this would be a simple swap, since the wiring work already has been done, but I'm wrong...

Apparently the angel eye are different, included with this set of headlights was a harness for it, but I'm totally confused on how to go about installing it...

I also didn't receive any of the plugs to use for the headlights, they are different than the OEM ones... Thankfully, I had a set from my smileys so I was set there... but I still want to use my smiley's in another car... So where do I go about getting these? should I be talking to my ebay seller, I have a feeling he's just gonna tell me I got what was in the box and thats it...

Anyhow, I would like to wire up the angel eye rings as my daytime running lights, should I tap in to the side marker lights (when you pull the headlight switch 1 notch) would they need a larger fuse,.. is the wirring adequate that I can simply do that? or should I be thinking of another method to wire these up...

anyhow, I'll post some pics later... just scratching my head at work thinking about this and want to see what everyone else thinks or if anyone else has had experiences installing these...

thanks

ok,

My cousin came over and we got it all figured out... actually had to cut the one connector and splice into the side marker lights to activate the relay, the rest of the harness worked...

Still confused why I didn't get those plugs for the headlights... That's required,... if I haven't already had a set of DEPO headlights previously, I would of been in pickle...
