Angel Eyes

I plan to replace my stock halogen tomorrow with the Depo V2 I ordered. Looks to be a straight forward install.

Only thing I'm having issues with is finding out precise instructions on coding them as daytime running lights, and coding out the amber running lights to only be used with the blinkers.

I have ProTool.....so has anyone used this for that function? I've seen plenty of people refer to doing it, but never specifics.

I assume it will be somewhere in the FRM coding module.

Thanks for sharing if you've done this before using ProTool. I know it and Carly both do it, but I ended up with ProTool because it has so many more features.

So I installed them this weekend. In Pro-tool I was able to have them come on as DRL with the switch set to "Park" and not have the corners light up. And I also figured out how to turn the corners off when the headlights are on.

I just still haven't figured out a way to leave the switch in auto and have them come on as DRL. If I enable it in the program, it turns the halogen running lights on.

Actually look pretty good. I will see about getting a picture with them on. Since I installed them, I have been through a pretty bad rainstorm, then washed the car. I was a little scared of hearing about condensation forming inside some of the older versions, but these have stayed crystal clear!

Install wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Actually one of the easier bumpers I have ever had to remove.

I find you in another thread haha I plan to do this as well (we might as well follow each other's progress ) as I bought my car with halogens instead of angel eyes (it was perfect in every other aspect save for that and the transmission.. AT, I plan to do the MT conversion at some point in my cars life (she's young)

However, I have avoided the Depo route as I have heard things about them (mostly negative).. because of this I am planning to save and do an OEM conversion. I never got to see anyone with Depo's so I never made my own judgement on these..

Did you get around to taking some pictures? It would be useful to see beam pattern/output.

No pics yet....but I have all next week off. Plan on doing my header install along with my new cat-back exhaust. I will try to get pics then.

But the V2 models of these seem to be pretty reliable unlike the first version. I got them from Fish-Cakes on the auction site. I waited until they were having one of those 10% off coupons, and bought them.

But so far...no issues with anything. No condensation, and I can see just fine at night. I also plan to look more into the coding issue to have them on as DRL's with the light switch in automatic. Right now I still have to turn the switch to the parking light setting to have them on without the other bulb burning.

I'm using Pro-Tool, and I had read somewhere that they referred to them as "Standing Lights". But next week I will have more time to look into it.
