focusonthefocus19 Any one know what kind of LED strips he used on the upper corner of the housings in the video? I'm about to order me a complete retrofit kit including the ballast, relay harness, mini H1 5.0, XBLED angel eyes, and the audi LED strip. I'm either going to through away my DDM HID kit I already have in my car, or sell them. Their installed, but not running.

I got these

in the projector housing im going to put the Morimoto bulbs... then theres still a bulb in the second side thats h1 as well for the high beam.. thats just a normal bulb trying to figure out how to get everything to work. my head is spinning lol

They also have the turnsignal in the housing. I'm planning to get a Switchback White/amber bulbs for them :)

BIMMERKID21 as for the link you gave me. it did help me understand how some things need to be wired but that leaves out how i'm going to get both my HID kit in the low beams to retain all functionality of my high beam Halogens as well that are in the unit.

BIMMERKID21 as far as i can tell. you got cords coming off the HID bulb that get plugged into the wiring harness for the HID which then goes to the balast.. and then you plug frthe car plug into a cord on the balast if i am seeing this right

BIMMERKID21 I know about the resistors.. got that... but check this out.. i'm going to delete the turn signals in the grille anyways. because i got a Euro Grill that I'm putting in. by deleting the signals in the grill... that makes my install work for the Euro grill that much easier

Now for wiring in your headlights. From the picture, it looks like the plugs are already prewired to work for your car. Have you tried simply plugging them into the existing headlight plug on your car and seeing if they work?

To wire in your signals, simply wire them directly to the grill turn signals. You will need the resisters, however, if you use LED bulbs for the turn signals.

BIMMERKID21 but that doesnt help with the low beams being wired through a balast.. since I'm ripping out the low beams and putting in a HID kit.

which means i'd have to rewire everything anyways.

distroy3d You just plug the stock Focus harness into the plug on your headlights and then the headlights separate the wires into the high-beam and low-beam wires.
