    I have fitted some bosch oem e36 headlights, think they came off an M3.
    At the back of the headlamp unit you have your round plug with 4 male connections in which the female plug attatches...
    My question is on the male connectors which connection supplies which light.

    1 pin will be ground/earth
    1 pin will supply park/side lights
    1 pin will supply main beam
    1 pin will supply dipped beam

    As you look at the unit the pins are located in the 12, 3, 6 & 9 o'clock positions.

    thanks in advance, i just spent an hour stripping the mess of aftermarket loom, colourcoding the pending connections either side and now i just have to connect and walla have full oem working lights again.

    P.S i know which colour does what function, just need to mate it to a pin on the back of the headlamp unit.

    N/S= brown- Earth or chassis
    Grey & Violet - Side n parking lights
    Green & Yellow - Dipped beam
    Green & white - high beam

    O/S= brown - Earth or chassis
    Grey & Yellow - Side n parking lights
    Blue & Yellow - Dipped beam
    Blue & White - High Beam
