I know this is the biggest issue for the last post, I just want to know what do you use to cover the sensor or how did you guys put the relays or did you buy drl relay on eBay?

Purchase a kit from XenonDepot.com

Very good quality and everything we need in included.

Contact Steve in the XenonDepot section.

Don't put cheap ebay stuff on your ~30000 to 40000$ vehicle, that's my advice

as stated in previous posts, the relays don't fix or override the DRL unfortunately, but it is a safer bet to protect your stock wiring. the only ways to manage the HIDs on our vehicles are:

1. cover the light sensor so that your all of your exterior lights come on as if it were night
2. hold the knob in the OFF position while starting the car, then release (auto lights will remain off and so far i haven't noticed any issues with this method)
3. Install a capacitor on the relay (per the instructions posted in the Halogen Upgrades thread in the Tech Section, or purchase the CANBUS fix from xenondepot which plugs into the relay, or buy the v-hids relay that has built in caps; doing any of these will allow the DRL to function as it normally would (your HIDs will be on, full power, whenever the DRLs are on)
4. ship your cluster to GTPrix (if and when he wants us to do this, not sure on cost) to actually hack it and either remove or move the DRL altogether

either way you go, you'll want a relay for the added safety for your wiring. quite a few of us have the DDM Tuning kits with no complaints thus far, but i've heard the xenondepot kits are good too. like supermat said, i would stay away from ebay kits, personally.

I wouldn't want to remove the sensor myself but one thing I did wonder about in addition to the above-mentioned options was possibly rigging something on the stalk to hold it in the off position but I haven't come across any easy solutions for that.

How about something as simple as black electrical tape ?

I tried this, but the round shape of it makes the tape look bad. I presently have a Coke Zero cap top and it works perfect.

Currently I just hold the switch in the off position when starting the car to keep the HIDs from igniting at all instead of covering the sensor. then I just turn them on manually when needed.
