Installing these angel eyes in the headlight trim and bezels was not the same for both the xenon and high beam openings. The angel eye for the xenon opening had to be mounted to the front of the bezel and the mounting tabs had to be cut off so it would sit flush. The high beam angel eye needed to be mounted inside the trim ring since it is smaller than the chrome bezel. I cut part of the high-beam trim ring so that the angel eye mounted flush without any gaps. I mounted the power distribution box inside the headlight enclosure so that it would not get wet. I then drilled a hole through an an existing cavity near the corner light and pulled the power wires through it where they could be connected to the wiring harness. I sealed the hole that I pulled the wires through with RTV silicone. I finished the wiring per the Umnitza instructions and used the trigger wire that attaches to the X3s accessory power so that the angel eyes are lit whenever the cars is turned on.
