Thumbs up

need help!! i bought an angel eye head light kit a while back but never got it installed. The kit never came with any install instructions. Anyone know where can I get instructions for installing a plug and play kit? There are like two big connector things for the angel eyes but don't know how to connect them. Need the instructions for installing them on a 1993 US 325is. Thanks

The Daemon is me ... or actually my 325 :wink

I just read your post... I have wired my angel eyes myself and I can send you detailed instructions, however I will have to leave for obout an hour but I'll do it when I get back later.

In the meantime, let me make sure it's the same setup. You should have a round plastic plug that goes on the light housing. This plug should have four (numbered) holes for wires. Are the halo rings seperate or are they built in already? Are all the cables inside the lights connected? Do you have the 8 metal pins that will go inside the round plastic connector?

I bought them from www.tirerack.com
These are the Mille Miglia MM11-2 Sport with Kumho Ecsta MX rubbers (225/40-18)

I put on a set a few weeks ago so i might be able to help you out. I bought a set of ZKW euro spec ellipsoids with the angel eyes preinstalled. Included was a plug and play adaptor like the one below (got the pics from ebay, not mine). The harness has a pin connector on four leads at one end. I will give you that wiring code in a minute. Meow, the other ends merely plug into your headlight assembly (they will only fit one way. The left over grey wire must be spliced in with the parking light lead (if you want them to come on with the parking lights) That's about it.

i guess the instructions will do some help. how ever the lights have two round plastic connectors. there are 3 pins in each connector. the angel eyes are already built inside with the light.

my connectors almost look like that. i have the two round plastic things but that's it and they have 3 pins inside each connector. I already got the headlights in but need help on how to wire up the angel eyes. can i just cut off the connectors and wire the wires into the parking light wire? i think the wire is grey right?

The grey lead that is left over (should be dangling by itself) should be tied in with the parking light (using like one of those t-tap connector ---there is a red one in the pic--i think it is the violet wire, when you take off the tape covering the parking light leads if there isnt a violet one, let me know what colors there are, and i'll tell you which one it is). The two round plastic things should just plug into your car. If the rest doesn't look like the pics i posted earlier, i'm not sure how to help you out.
