    hi guys, im doing angel eyes on my e46 but am stuck where to connect the eyes for power? i have fed them back through the headlight, and the guide says "connect to sidelight connector", seller said no wire cutting required. what is he actually talking about? i have removed the h7 bulb but dont see where i can connect it:

    Step 3) Simply connect the power (red and black) to the cars existing side light connectors, after removing the original bulb.

    any idea?

    Yeah I was going to get those for my E36 Angel Eye install, Halfords hadn't got any left so I got bullet connectors (think thats what they were called) but anything that secures the connection of two wires together will do

    Nope, but the seller says i don't need them!

    The wires comming from the balast have a thinnish connector on them already, and he said they just slot into the sidelight connectors - not sure where these are but if anyone has pics it would help

    thanks¬!

    Not the most perfect connection there Kev. Besides, you may get a lights out error in the dash, so best thing is get those connectors I pointed out, leave the bulbs in the original connectors and 'tie-wrap' them to the main loom. You have engine bay lights then and no dash errors .

    just push the pins in? ROFL I fitted angels to mine, but went down the cut and solder route. I am not the most trusting of people when it comes to scotchloks. At least by soldering them I know they are done right. I kept the original sidelight sockets even though I didnt want to use them. Solely in case of any mot issues, I can at least put them back easily then. They are well and truly taped up in the wiring though. The other reason for keeping them there was so if I ever went back to standard I would know where they were. If I put them anywhere else I would be bound to lose them.

    Just for refernce, I use a set of these to do an inline strip and add job. Strips without cutting and pulls the wire shroud back enough to solder in easily.
