Interesting Angel Light Question

I just had new angel lights installed, but I think there is something wrong with it.

If I remember correctly OEM angel lights stay on when I turn off the engine and get out of the car.

After I got the new angel lights installed that function is gone, but the angel eyes does turn on when I open the door again.

Is this normal?

Mine stay on and then fade out like the OEM ones do.

Check your setting on idrive. See if you can change them around. GL

I could be wrong, but OEM angel eyes don't always come on automatically. It depends on outdoor lighting for one (ie only comes on when dark) and two, i think the light switch has to be on auto.

The Angel Brights, FYI if you are looking for something super bright during the day they may not be for you. But I have had no problems with them
