city lights are just a 5watt bulb that goes in your high beam ... and thats what the grey wire is for... very simple!

If you have ellipsoids, run the parking light power wire from the corner light to the peanut bulb in the highbeam. That's what I did anyway.

I just ordered Projector lights that have city lights....can I just order a different bulb that's a different color to install into the city light spot? How expensive/hard to get are these bulbs? Thx guys.

About 3 bucks at my local parts store... pull bulb out.. insert new bulb... apply power...

If I would trust Emir to do it.. I think you can do it just fine...

and I was thinkign about maybe jsut switchign back to the yellow/whiteish ones thta might better match my car.

You know what would be real baller status for this forum? If everyone who could do city lights did them in amber or something and it would be like the "bimmerwerkz" thing to do. And we could all have the amber city lights in our sig or somethign along those lines to represent a more solidified community.
