Just bought a set of Prolumen 6k HIDs from Ouri over at BavToys.com I ordered them last Thursday I think it was and I got them yesterday evening. So it took 4 business days to get to me through FedEx.
The contents were well packaged and had security tape over every seam so I would know if they were fooled with or not when I was recieving them.
I am very happy with my purchase. As far as my install though? I just glanced at some instructions I found online. Funny thing is that the ones I found were hooked up backwards to how my lights installed.
outt So I just kinda felt my way as I went. I did get 1 good idea from the instructions I found though, and you will see it.
Now onto the DIY.
I know there are some out there but I figured it would only take me about 5 extra minutes to take pictures and maybe someone could take something useful from my install.
I first started by hooking the hardware up to get a visual on how everything worked together.
If you will notice, the end plug with the 2 wires exposed are not included with the kit.
Next thing I did was take the cover off of my ZKW low beam light(the one with the projector) and remove the possitive wire(leave the negative, the brown wire, in). After removing the possitive wire tape it up and tuck it away inside the lamp housing.
[I used this method from some other DIY, Umnitza included a wire that does the same job as what I am doing but this is a bit cleaner imho]
Now take that plug you used from the old lamps and wire it into your low-beam wire and the ground wire coming from the car. You will need to remove the low-beam wire plug that hooks into your newer euro lights. I imagine you can just tie it in if you really wanted to, but I think it looks cleaner this way.
Next thing I did was hook a mounting plate(included in the kit-Great idea manufacturers!!) to the ballast. Be careful with those screws that you use to mount the plate, they can easily be striped.
Now, the smart thing to do is to test out the goods before you take more time to mount them. So that's what I did.
