Special thanks goes to first my gf (Becky) who bought these for my birthday..and everyones favorite: John aka Myzneyes and Chanh

Disconnect the positive terminal...

First was getting the bulbs in:
have the blue piece go in the side slot. bulb slides in easy.
IPB Image

save your plastic washer that comes with the bulb and this is why...without this your bulb isnt secure but i used the plastic washer and cut it into a C shape:
IPB Image

next put washer behind bulb harness like this:
IPB Image

should be nice and secure like this:
IPB Image

next hook up the connectors thats with the relay, use the existing H1 harness (pop off the exisitng rubber piece) and plug in the 2 connectors from relay...do this on the drivers side.

next mount the relay and the ballast somewhere...heres where i did mine. plug in rest of wires, negative and positive, etc etc

IPB Image

next is the passenger side: because i have abs, i wedged it between the abs and in the frame.
IPB Image

plug positive back on...should be easy from here..heres my finished results, night pics will be on later:

Nice! I didn't do it side ways because the 2 dots on the HID bulb doesn't match up with the original slot... so I took a different approach at it...

First I made the hole bigger with drills....
IPB Image

IPB Image

Now the bulb fits vertically in, with the 2 dots on the bulb matching the slot's...
IPB Image

Then I take this little rubber thingy from my work place...
IPB Image

And clamp on the bulb. Tight and secure.
IPB Image

With the rubber cover on.
IPB Image

The rest, just follow Lew's or CelicaGT04's instruction...

:-D

Lew you're funny... you actually went to a parking lot to take pics lololol I don't think there's any underground parking in Walnut, so I'll have to wait till nite time.

Anyway, thank you Culpable04 for this group buy. I have to say the shipping was very speedy, and the whole process was very professionally handled.

I wouldn't recommend putting the ballast on the ABS module... I put mine on the verical metal support between the two headlights. Looks much more stock wink.gif

I'm oldschool HID. Been using HID for about three years now tongue.gif been there done that a lot of times.

Here is a photo of the HID cutoff. Notice the bleeding (aka alien lights) above the cutoff point.
IPB Image

I will be taking more pics of the cutoff soon, when I change my HID kit.

Very nice.........

Have You more photos of your car with HID??? I have some problems with xenon bulbs......... Probably they not fit very well............If i put the car in front of a wall, the left light seems good, the right light is less concetrate.............
Sorry for my english...........but, if you have more photos, probably you can help me.......... smile.gif

The way I secured my globe was just to bend the retaining clip wire, so that it pushes against the globe. I recently changed HID kits (went from 35W 8000K to 50W 6000K = teh winnar!) and I tried the plastic clip method, but the biggest problem I see with that would be heat. With my method, the globe isn't going anywhere any time soon tongue.gif

celicume: Have you tried swapping the globes around? Sometimes the globes fail and you get light/dark spots. That's what I found with my old kit.

The left globe ( how you said) i think fit good because if i touch it, its firm! The right instead, i secured in the same moods............the globe seems firm but the light reflects on a wall make another design compared to the left!!! Its normal??? Probably the globe have some problems? I will try to exchange left with right............. wink.gif

Park it close to a wall, you see the circle mark on the glass? YOu should be able to see that, it should be on the cutoff horizon.
