Seems like the BMW green/blue should connect to the Acewell red to give power when the key is ON, independent of the headlight switch.
Also, seems like you should have a BMW red (always "hot") connected to the Acewell BROWN, for power at all times whether ignition key is on or off, to keep the Acewell clock working.
