1st Gen Projectors --> What to Do with DRL

Alright, like the poll says, should I wire up the DRL to the First Gen Headlights?
The DRL is the Low voltage High Beam lights and I found out that one of the brown wires is associated with the DRL, so I'd just have to splice in a relay to the brown wire to wire in my Halo's and LED's to that, or just splice it into my Turn signals. So, what do you guys think?

so i was messing around with that headlight harness today, that brown wire you say is the DRL wire is incorrect. It is one of the wires for the turn signals. The DRL signal comes from beyond that harness probably all the way back into the ECU/PCM of the car

It should also have power if the turn signal is on.

It's an 07, there are three wires that run to the stock headlight bulbs... the high beam wire, the low beam wire, the ground... but on the harness itself I have the high beam, low beam, parking light, turn signal, ground, and an extra brown wire (which only has power if the fuse is in)

Not to sound rude, but if you read my last post, I have the same as you with an Extra Brown wire... so Six, and as far as I can tell on my harnesses, that sixth wire ties into the high beam side of the head light harness on the lights...
