i got those headlights. i'll be installing them in the next couple days.

now i need everyone's opinion on this; there is the halo rings and the little led bulbs on the top. what should i wire the halo rings to? also, should i wire the leds on the too? i'm not sure what the law is on them here.

Wire them to the grille parking lights. If they have the orange bulb then wire those to the turn signal lights on the grille

there are 2 bulbs on the side, i'm guessing those are supposed to be turn signals.

Which ever ones amber should be turn signals. Splice them to the turn signal wire on the grille lights. Then, splice the halo and one the other side light and splice them together to the grille parking lights. That would be the best bet for ya

okay, do the parking lights blink, or are there 2 separate wires going into the grille lights? i guess i didn't really look at it.

they look pretty clean to me. but i haven't used them yet, so we'll see. they came with diodes soldered on so the halo rings won't burn out. also, if i were to install HIDs in them, they are a different bulb size than the stock headlights. i was told they would be H11 bulbs.

positive wire from the strip to accessory prong in the switch.
negative wire from the strip to ground.
ground on switch to ground.
power from switch to a fuse under the dash, i went with the horn, but it wasn't the greatest idea.

three separate wires, one ground, one for parking lights, and one for just blinkers
