The solenoid should be a switched 12v source, so realistically you could pigtail off the hi beam wires to the pos and gnd on the solenoid. That way you could have high beam HiD's as well as high beam lights.... hmmm thats a lot of lights. Sounds like a good idea. Just get a multimeter and check which pin is 12+ with the high beams on...

Solenoid white is +,brown is ground. You can wire them to your highbeam wiring,there's no need to reduce voltage or use any special circuit like a Bosch E46 bixenon projector.

:thumb: Thanks So much ! I was thinking to be doing that but I Din't want to mess with those solenoids ! I did some reserch all over the internet and I found out that other people that are doing retrofit with bi-xenon are just hooking them up!
:D:D:D:D

well I think for me it's going to be more easy cause my e55s solenoid just have 2 wires white(+) and brown(-).
:focus:

:spy:Do you guys think if I have the solenoids hook up streight to the high beams harness it will burn:target: the solenoids if i have them ON for long time while im driving :plane: ? :spy:

Looks like you are good to go. I wouldnt worry about overloading the circuit. If you are, just fuse it. It should take hardly any amperage to trip the solenoid... good luck and post pictures!

That aiming picture will work for the truck too. Regardless of whether or not its a truck, it should still be aiming at the same spot. Headlamp height should not affect aiming point.

Ground,negative,same difference ;)

Connect the white solenoid wire to highbeam + and brown solenoid wire to highbeam -.

The highbeam - wire should be white with black stripe for passenger and driver side. Driver side + wire light green,passenger side + brown.

Is that sealant in the corner of the housing...?
I'm not sure what corner you talking about :p, But im sure it was sealant !
I did put a LOT of it ! Because I don't Like to have Foggy headlights !:D

:kev: Remember They are not Done Yet ! when everything its dry and ready to go the next step will come :
cutting the "eXtra stuff", cleaning & detailing :drum:

Just my .02 cents but with the LEDs and Angel Eyes it's quite busy looking. Takes away from the HID conversion.

I Ask around about it and most of my friends told me to keep them :tu:..!
and then the best idea came up :eek: !

"to have a switch to turn on/off the Angel Eyes & LED's whenever I want

SO everyone is happy !!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now is working just perfect !
because I can have the angel eyes & LED's turn on on the afternoon and looks AWESOME !!
and
night time is showtime ! I can have just the HID's turn ON
:amen:

Looks not too bad. Those LED bother me as well :) If it was like on Audi R8 - a stripe.... now it like a row of pimples in the headlight.

P.S. whats up with the mexican soap opera in every post of yours? :confused::eek: looks like rice Tundra :p
