Issue with Angel eyes

I installed AIB angel eyes a couple months ago and they look great. One thing I noticed while looking at my headlights' reflection off cars in front of me, is that the yellow bulbs (not sure what you call them? they are the yellow bulbs on the inner angel eye rings) seem to be turned on. Some times I randomly see it turned on on the right side...other sides on the left.

Wasn't sure if I was suppose to do something else in addition to the normal installation.

Sounds like your cornering lamps (that's why you see left/right side randomly). They also come on when the car is in reverse. They can be changed out to a bulb that matches the AiBs very easily.

Ahh yeah those ones!, I did noticed they're on when the car is in reverse!

Any idea why they turn on during normal driving? I'd really like them to be off when driving, and I guess turn on when in reverse..?

They should turn on during normal driving when you are turning or "cornering" hence their nomenclature. At night it's easy to see when they activate when you turn the steering wheel.
