    Hi, I recently purchased these "new" LED Angel Eyes from ebay. Unfortunately when coming to fit them i came across a few problems, these lights are not a direct swap, it comes with a wire harness which one end connects to the positive terminal of the battery (which is no problem) they also connect to the angel eyes themselves again not a problem. But one of the wires has to connect to the ECU I believe this is where it gets switched on (might be wrong) i have searched all over the net and every installation guide says that i need to connect it to a "red wire with white stripe and yellow dots" but all these installation guides are for pre-facelift and sedan models, and I cannot find a "red wire with white stripe and yellow dots" in my car, I have emailed the person I bought the lights off but he is as much use as a fish with tits. Please can someone help me, or even let me know if this installation is possible and how it can be achieved, I will provide pics if needed.

    This is a link for the lights I bought.
