are Machs basically the same design? so the top ones should be wired to the parking lights or the headlights?

Here's the Mach setup. Pardon the many pictures but it save trying to explain.

The basic look



Parking lights as the little top bulbs.



Turn signals as the larger lower bulbs.



Low beams with only the center (looks like yours are the same).



High beams as both the inside and center.

ookay, i see. so i'll wire the top lights and halos to parking lights, and bottom lights to the signals.

the only major difference i see between our headlights is when i have my brights on, it's only the inside bulbs. not both of them.

You'll need to do this to get both inner lights to work at the same time: http://ofoc.ca/hid/step05.html. I don't know how it is for your lights but for the Machs, the inner bulbs aren't that bright alone, but when combined with the middle lights (which have there own bright setting if that makes since), they are way brighter. Just think of the middle light as the bulbs you just took out of your car which have the bright and low beams in one bulb, the projectors are the same way with the inside lights as aids.

I edited the above post a little more so hopefully it makes more sense.

Thanks, my bumper is this (obviously painted but this is the only close up picture I have of it). It's two orange LED strips on either side wired in to replace the side indicators.



And I actually don't know for sure whether I have HID's or not. It's what ever came with the lights; they do have a very nice blue/white tint to them that I really like.

That's what I figure but it doesn't really matter what they are. At least until one burns out.

What do yours have? Are they just normal bulbs?
