Dual LED SPOD

Does anyone know how to wire up the Double LED SPOD to come on when the headlights come on?

I was kinda disappointed to find out you have to manually turn on the lights manually and they don't work off the key.

I don't have the double-lit switches, but I sent my sPOD switch power wire through a relay I added that's triggered by key power.
This way, my accessories are electrically "dead" when the key is not on (no battery drain, no danger from curious kids playing).
You could do that for your LED power, or tap into the gauge wiring (orange/grey if I remember right) so they dim with your gauges.

EDIT 2: Double-check what wire you're looking for before you hack up your junk!
I know the wire is orange/grey on 2010 models - I used it to light my vacuum and air gauges.

Orange / grey is for the 2012 as well. I just did mine a couple weeks ago.
