One question. To get the city lights to work what would I do? I know I just need to splice the wires from the headlights to the existing ones(i think). Would I just run a length of wire from the city lights to my corners to get them to function?

I would think that the wire that powers the parking or lower light from the corners would work, but that's mostly a guess

Well if I'm able to get them then we will see. Our insurance jumped from either 300 or 400(can't remember what it was) to 1000 every three months....so it depends on if anyone bids on it and runs the price up. I'm still trying to figure out why insurance went up so much...I'm the primary driver of a '94 sable and my dad is the primary driver of the 525, that was supposed to be the cheapest way to get me added to the insurance. I wouldn't think that a 16 year old driving a sable would more then double insurance on a couple that have had maybe one compined ticket in 18 years.....I know I'm going to be really pissed if this keeps me from getting the hellas.

If they are the same then yeah, I love them.
Yeap

The Hellas are a no go....maybe I'll find another pair I can get soon, I'm just kinda upset seeing as I thought I would get those at a great deal and then the bid went to $132......I hate people who buy what I want!

Thanks. I was close to getting a job at the best body shop in town and getting paid $10 an hour as an untrained kid still in school...that would have helped me fix up the grill area from the little bump I was in but that isn't going to happen because my classes are killer hard this year and school starts back in a few weeks. It just seems that I can't win, but I know most people feel that way a lot of the time.

pfft- try buying euro hellas for an e39 if you think the smileys cost bucks. 132 bucks covers the wiring kit and maybe the shipping.
