LoL, I guess you are one of the spoiled brats now huh...

Well do NOT use the diagram in the archive it is wrong.

You will need all 10 wires or it won't complete the circut. Where he has the turn signals can be wired in togeather is incorrect also. I emailed S2 who emailed Tom and it should be fixed here shortly...PM/email me for more info.

Oh trust me I tried his method twice and it would NOT work.

When doing his method my beams were reversed; highs = lows and lows = high. My turn signals would come on at the same time when trying to use one of his 2 methods and the other way the signals would blink really fast. The only way I got everything to work was by running turn signal minor (it says MIN) to VW wire 4 which is the little marker lamp below the low beams. I then ran turn signal major (stamped MAJ) to VW wire 3. This allowed the circuit to complete and now my lows and highs are correct and the turn signals worked. Oddly enough I tried a couple things after that and it just messed things up. All in all I like the way it turned out because I am able to use all the bulbs.

Besides 5speedZX3 you don't to leave a bulb unwired...that would just be ghetto..

well now that im even more confused I think ill just sit outside and hook up random wires untill it all works. I read the how to but my reading level is about a 5 and the difficuly of it is a 6 so im screwed . lol.

I have to wait untill wifey goes to work to do the install because she doesnt know that i have them so nobody tell her! I also got euro grills but i need some fog lights to match up, anyone have any extra they dont want?
