    hallo peeps, have just tried fitting hids to my e34 and they keep blowing fuses! one will work, but 2nd blows the fuse, either way round?

    is the wiring going to need updating?

    Do both fuses blow or just the one for one side?

    Hi Ronnie, cheers for the reply - it was just one fuse, then the other. I started from one end and went through all the cabling, found a bit of cable that was shorting, so replaced it and insulated it - works fine now!

    It had probably been like it for a while, so don't know if it was just the higher voltages or something that made it show up?!
