Ah the project to banish those ugly lights front the front. Go Euro!

Here is a history of mine. The front lights are just awful looking. they make your car look really dark, regardless of what color your car is.

Even Older Lights: These are standard, we all know what they look like.

New Clear turn signals. Yellow/Orange is just UGLY. Old Lights. I personally painted then white because it made it look better, but not as good as..

^ This! Euro Lights and Euro Signals! These I got on ebay for $107 shipped. ^

^ I decided that I like this look better ^ These were brand new and made in Taiwan of all places. They cost $300 shipped. I've seen them for much less.

Installation



Once you get your lights, you will notice that they will not plug into your current 4 pin connector. This is the process of converting them:

1. Take out your old lights, sell on ebay :)

2. The standard adapter looks like this:

NOTE: Your pinout may vary! Ground wire is usually brown.

Then slap the back cover (009 545 30 28) on, and plug them in (they are keyed) and test 'em out!
