That would be effective, but I got lazy in the installation.  I wired the relay so that it was 
triggered by turning on my parking lights while the ignition is on.  That way I can turn on just 
the running lights and use the Hellas as DRL's during the day.

Makes me feel a little bit better since ~20 miles of my commute is through twisting wooded 
corridors. (fun commute BTW!) And they don't drain the electrical system nearly as bad as the 
stock headlights, even with relays installed on the stocks!
