That's exactly what I did, I follow keitherkert write up;

If you want the LED strip to be always on when the car is on, you will have to connect the LEDs to a fuse and either make your own kind of harness or split your cars wires. I just split the wires, but if you don't want to do that you could make a simple harness that ends the middle wire and takes in the new wire for the middle.

The LED connection is the middle wire for the blinkers
(big red-ish pink plug). I ran a wire from a fuse (F100 - 10A - Active Damping **only turns on with ignition) to both headlights. (I put a small hole into the fuse box for the wire)
Cut the middle wire on the blinkers, about a inch before the connector, and add the new wire. Tape off the old wire, add a cap to the new one and tape off.
plug in the headlights and you should be good to go.

I was hoping to make it simple and hook up the led to the projectors and split the wires, but the projectors voltage seems to fluctuate between 6 and 8v. The LEDs need 12v (which F100 fuse puts out) for them to work right. They have a constant 6v sent to them when the car is on, but they do not power on until it gets 12v.

The nice thing about having it this way is that I can keep my projectors off of DRL since the led strip will always be on.

Sorry, didn't take any pictures during setup.

I drove it for about 3 hours yesterday, the new wires were not hot and everything else seemed to operate normally.

I have a 2014 limited, I don't think the 2015 would be any different.

Re: * Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *

Which bulbs are you referring to? Do you have a link or pics ? They should fit right in if they fit in the stock headlamp

Here's another pic for you of a member who just installed them.

I will be using those bulbs not the HID's. I'd rather not deal with the headache.

What were the lugs that you used for your aftermarket wheels?
