Take this baby out of the housing and wire the sensor to your dome light, or any other light you choose, and 2 claps on 2 claps off.:clap:
Well what I would really like to see done (but I didnt want to limit the idea to this) is to have them come on with your Xenon bulbs so you are now running 4 headlights, but get them to angle down a bit so youre not blinding people. Id probably want to run it off a custom switch so you have the option to turn it off. Then you could get the same color of bulb to match the 6k Xenons and have a really clean look while driving at night.I'm down but what do you want to do with the lights? I don't really understand, do you mean changing the color of it or changing where they point, etc. etc.

That one would pull too much attention, IMO. Other drivers would flash you thinking your high beams were on (despite lack of glare*), and cops would pull you for high beams or for a "too many lights" violation (check your laws, it seems most states limit the quantity of forward-facing lights).
*Rant: People on forums (and sometimes on the road) seem to be far more concerned with the quantity or labeling of lights for judging glare than the actual glare they produce. Just try asking a non-vehicle-specific forum about making fog lights come on as DRLs or with parking/headlights on a vehicle with dim, unfocused, decorative-only fog lights...they'll bitch endlessly that you're going to blind other drivers. Yet, nobody seems to mind vehicles that come from the factory with their high beams as DRLs aimed directly at eye level and not dimmed much...
I totally understand where youre coming from, and if theres anyone who has been harassed with BS rules and regulations on their car its me. But this is why I want the seperate switch to turn them on with, it wouldnt be something I would run on all the time, maybe just at meet ups or shows or things like that, I just want the option.
Theres gotta be a way to vag com them on when you have your low beams or high beams on? If not you could always run a new circuit straight from the light, you'll need a wiring diagram for this, straight to a 12v accessory switch.
I, personally, would want it on a seperate switch, but I would want it done right. Should I fuse it with an inline fuse or something too? I dont want ANY ghetto shit on this car, I dealt with enough ghetto wiring on my MK1's!If you're going to run a new circuit anyway, there's no need for a wiring diagram. Tap any headlight wire and use it to operate a relay. If you want a switch, a single wire can go from the relay to the switch. Piece of cake.
Yeah, SOP for doing your own wiring for lights is to use a fuse. You may be able to use one of the empty fuse positions in the car's fusebox. While you're mucking around the fusebox, it may be possible to tap the headlight and inner light wires there instead of at the lights. It would be cleaner and less ghetto, and probably more weather-resistant. For that, a wiring diagram may save a few minutes, or a tone generator & probe set:
heres a good look at the cover, you need to pull it from the hinge on the side to get it to come out
