    hi there im fairly new to this i bought these from ssdd motorsport:
    SSDD Motorsport Ltd - Your One Stop Shop for all your BMW Needs!
    i fit everything fine split the headlights all straight forward but the problem i come to was wiring up the angels to my sidelight as i don't want the existing sidelights on but i don't want a dashboard warning light. where do i wire up the trigger leg on the headlight ? ive read that you wire it up to either side of the sidelight wires but how will i prevent the dashboard warning light if i take out the sidelights?

    Wire the LED trigger to the sidelights.

    To remove the error warning light, you can either;
    -Get CANBUS safe LED angel eyes - very common, easiest solution
    -Wire the sidelights in parallel and hide the bulb somewhere in the assembly - easy to do, don't need any extra parts
    -Get some load resistors and wire them in parallel - need new parts, can stick them anywhere in assembly
    -Go to a BMW shop with AutoLogic and get them to remove the bulbcheck - you'll lose all error warning lights, won't be told if a bulb does go out, and will need to be redone if the LCM is changed or re-programmed
