    hi there, after upgrading my X5's front end to the face lift(04>), and getting all the rest of the front end on i came to the lights and realized that the connectors are completely different. My old OE lights had 5 or 6 connectors on and the new OE xenon ones have only the one. I did have xenon lights on before but they had 12 wires in total and the new ones have only 10. Does anyone have any suggestions on rewiring the new lights or even diagrams(03 and 05) that i could gain any insight from as I'm stumped at the mo and can't seem to find any obvious way of fixing this problem - ie retrofit wiring loom etc. hope someone can shed some light on this illuminating issue(corny i know)
