e90 LED repeater issue?

Hi guys,

I bought a set of smoked led repeaters from eBay.
They arrived and they have a red/black wire and a packet of splice plug connectors (no plug)

I took the housing off and bulb out of the car and there's no obvious place for me to wire them up so I'm helluva confused.

Ideally I should be looking for the plug and play connector below:

and everything would have been simple!


Do I butcher the wires straight from the car into the splice connector plug and bypass the official bmw plug or will this give me errors?

Can I buy this official plug from somewhere, does it have a name?

Sorry if I'm being a n00b but I'm new to modding

Happy New Year!!

Have you checked any videos on YouTube or anything like that because some one might have the same sort of light as yours or the same wiring and they might show you how to connect it up. Just check it out mate worth a try.

Hope this helps and you get it sorted so it works best of luck

Cheers

Have you checked if they fit nevermind the wiring! There seems to be a fitting issue with some of the side repeaters on ebay for the E90/E91s

Yeah, they fitted perfectly, just a wiring issue.
The seller has got back to me explaining that his whole batch were missing the error cancelling connection, and is now refunding my purchase.

Over to Bimmian I go!

Thanks for the responses.

Just what I'm looking for mate, whats the connectors like?

In the pic, it just looks what I have already, a black and red wire with no adapter

A much more reasonable price than bimmian

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-E90-E9...item3f12105a93

im just not keen on the standard shape of the side repeaters - dont look sleek enough

I'm not a fan of them mate, they look ace on an M3 but in my opinion they look out of place with the shape of the 3 series.

Again though, be careful that they have the error cancelling connector, as I've found to my cost recently

The world would be a boring place if everyone had the same taste

Bimmian are coming in at 50 as well for the repeaters, shocking price imo.
