Installing new LED halo's tomorrow one question

As a 3rd party product its probably compatible with other models and that might be a connection for them.

I installed led halo's on my e91 2010 and it was a simple plug and play. And for once it was simple.

Good luck and your car will look so much better.

Rob

well i guess that extra connector was for different models ,because it lit up fine, only one problem.

only one ring seems to be lighting up , it is a very hot bright day today but still it seems only one ring is lit. i tried turning the bulb , both sides of the led light lit up so im a bit puzzeled unless the bulbs are just not very bright. not sure. any help would be great i know tons of you guys have done this mod.

Maybe that's what the other connector is for. I am not lucky enough to have xenons so it was simple to get them both working. Couldn't comment on how to do it with xenons. Sorry.
