DJ Auto wiring Help!

I ordered my dj auto headlights from DDM tuning. My car is an early 2000 (prefacelift) 540i with stock HID/Xenon.
55watt ballasts
6000k bulbs
60 LED angel eyes

Basically, everything works almost perfectly and there are a few things i want to do.

1. I had 3 wires from my stock turn signals. Parking, Ground, an Blink. I put the Power to the trigger for the AEs and the Blink to the housing. Sometimes, Im not sure when, the turn signal bulbs will stay on (not at full brightness, even dimmer than the parking lights) and i really like that look. But i have no way to control it and most of the time, its only one side. How to i get this effect on both sides everytime i turn the parking lights/AEs on? Could i splice the Parking lights to the blinker wire and have sometype of diode to avoid feedback for a blown bulb(if i even need it)?

2. If i ran a positive power wire to the door sill lights, and then bypassed the AE harness so it will fade, what kind of diode do i need to put in the line to avoid my door sill lights coming on whenever i turn the parking lights/AEs on?

3. Where to mount new ballasts? i dont see anywhere obvious.
^^Link to the "official" Install thread. More like officially lame.
Also not really the lights fault, but the 55 watt ballasts wil shock the living s*** out of you. ALWAYS TURN YOUR HEADLIGHTS OFF, BEFORE MESSING WITH THEM!!
