Angel eyes as the daylights

Hi all,
Is there a way to use the angel eyes as the daylights? I am running umnitza's angel eyes bulbs. We are required to drive with the daylights on here and the angel eyes come on only with the xenon low beams which happens when it is dark. I don't like the yellowish look of the daylights and wish I had the angel eyes on instead.
Thanks

There is an extensive write up from another board on this.
I have done a write up on it as well. My AEs are on with the car
Also, a good indy or even a smart dealer can disable the factory DRLs with an Autologic box.

Your two options:

1 Re-wire you DRL into your AEs
2 Use a OBDII device to reprogram the lights

Option 2 sounds like fairly easy to do. Thanks a lot to all!
