Just found my old pigtail and checked the wiring.. middle wire is parking lights ( wire halos and your LEDs to this) and wire the turn signals to the right wire (turn signal wire) I don't have the same headlights, I had the Audi style so instead of the halos I had the led strip like the r8.. same wiring and stuff just different look.. hope I helped

i'll be installing these very soon. only problem is, i won't be able to wire the single LEDs at the top to the parking lights, because they aren't DOT approved. i thought of wiring them to a toggle switch, but that will be a later project.

these headlights are honestly ridiculous. the amount of light they emit compared to the stock headlights is crazy. the projector lense makes a huuuge difference. i want to get some before and after pics but my camera sucks. i'll still try though.

here they are. i love them. i have another question for whoever can help me.



there is 2 lights on the side (as shown here) and i don't know which one is for signals. the bottom bulb pulls out alot easier than the top. i was just wondering what the top one is for.

It probably really doesn't matter what you use the side bulbs for as long as their color is appropriate. For Mach headlights, the bottom bulb is the turn signal while the top is the parking lights, but since your fixtures are the same size, it wont matter which you run for what as long as you use an orange bulb for the signal.

BTW. Those headlights look great. It really livens up your front end nicely.
