first of all id like to just say ,,,, HELLO.
im new to this forum and joined tonight as id thought it would be handy to join the forum now i own a e39
i have a problem , i own a 2003 facelift e39 520i se (2.2)
i have normal halogen headlights not xenon/hid, but obviously have the glass bulb/lense for xenon conversion. I bought a LUMENUX HID PLUG AND PLAY kit from ebay and when it arrived originaly it was fine, the kit worked plug and play but bulb holder was incorrect (NOT L SHAPE the one i needed)... anyways.
basically new kit came tonight and i think it will fit,
PROBLEM is the kit plugs together simple enough BALLAST PACK TO BULBS ETC but im left with a negative & postive lead on each bulb, ive tried plugging the ballast pack into the main power for the bulb hoping the + & - were not needed but they didnt power up.
SO. i then tried putting the + & - direct into the power where i took the L shape bulb from and they dont go in
i dont want to sound dumb but is it just a case of getting power to these points and the kit will fire up? or what please help many thanks sorry for the long story to get to the point. ive tried looking in DIY and only seen a 3 series how to and that just has two clips you plug into, mine is like a oblong block
