Cool, many thanks for the help, got the volt meter and checked the currents, brown is indeed negative.

Onto another question, where to safely mount the HID Ballasts?

Inside the front bumper on the sides?

Eitherside of the lower black grill, around the back, inbetween the "\" and "/" parts of the bumper?



Atomic80, where did you mount the ballasts in your kit? :confused:

Thanks
Tin

Re: Quick (stupid) Q : Which is Positive/negative? (hid foglight install)

Isn't it only possible to plug the connectors one way and not the other? At least that was the case when I plugged mine in.

I have mine mounted using heavy-duty double sided tape on the insides of the bumpers. It's been there for the last 4 years without any problems. Have you checked to see if your "check foglight lights" message has come on yet? Some people get this message but I don't.

Did you get your kit from Umnitza? Are they still giving the group buy price.

thanks atomic, was thinking there too, but was alittle concerned with the water tubing for the headlight washers,if they leaked, the ballasts would get possibly get wet, but if you've had them in that location for 4yrs, should be safe enough, i'd have thought..

pic to illustrate :



The kit I got wasn't from Umitza, it was from Bimmian.com and is the 6000k series, 2 day international delivery, paypal payment, excellent service, just no fitting instructions :biggrin:, but is pretty straight forward, plugs only go in one way.

No Check fog lights errors, other than when there wasn't anything connected.

pic of test :

Perfect low-tech way to do it.

Cheers, Daniel.

Sorry Daniel, didn't see them on your website, otherwise would order them from you. :crying2:

the font size on the list of products on the leftside, seems alittle small and abit cluttered... maybe change the colours of the subsections for easier reading? just my opinion, very good site overall.
