Well, this headlights system consists of the headlamps and 2 power supplies and wiring harness; one for the low beam lights and the other for the high beam ones. Installation is easy and you don't have to cut wires and mess with the head lights harness a lot, but it is preferable that some technician installs them

1- Unplug the wiring connector of the lights and connect it to the power supply. (You might need to either remove the original plug or get an adapter between the plug and the power supply.

2- Connect the headlights to the power supply using compatible plug and the wires provided with the whole set.

You can choose to install either low beam lights only or high beam lights or both. The only thing you have to worry about is where to put the adapters so that they are invisible and stable while driving.

I will try to get some photos to show you how the system is installed in my car.

There are a lot of brands and makes of Xenon headlights in the market, and the price differs based on quality. I paid 100$ for my headlights (Not the best but relatively good). The color is actually a very sharp and bright white color, no other colors available as far as i know (I might be mistaken). Note that when you turn your Xenon headlights on, they start weak and need like 5 seconds to warm up and become very sharp. I can tell you that when switching between high and low beam quickly and for several times, the driver on the other side of the road will have a hard time maintaining a proper vision of the road. You need to check if it is legal in your country too. I will try to shoot a small video soon.

Very nice car overall. Is it possible to install ASC in a 1989 E34 not originally equipped with ASC? Is this your case? If yes, do you have any idea what do I need to do it?

Oops! Sorry! I'll delete one post. I love the wagon Unfortunately it has an auto-trans, but I would love a manual. Thinking of maybe building it to a manual later on. The auto transmission is really great for the stop and go traffic back and forth to work though! My S2000 with a twin disc clutch is a nightmare for that kind of driving.. :P

Edit: How do I delete the post...?
