Sorry guys, I been doing the Mothers Day thing today. but I will have some pics and diagrams uploaded tomorrow.

It does throw a trouble light when I first start the car however it only last about 5 seconds and goes off until the next time the car is started.

Everything works:
parking light mode: activates side markers and angel eyes
head light mode (low beam): activates the above plus xenons
head light mode (high beam): activates all the above plus the halogen lamp and opens the shutter in the xenon projector.

both Xenon and non-xenon headlight connectors are identical- the connector is a twelve terminal connector however only five terminals are utilized in the non-xenon assembly where as seven terminals are utilized in the xenon assembly. The terminal numbers are marked on the connectors - basically you need to add a wire which you will ground to the chassis to terminal #2 (This a gound for the Xenon ballast) , then add a wire to terminal marked #5, the splice that wire to the wire connected to terminal #6 ( #5 powers the high beam shutter inside the xenon projector). This will be more understandable when I scan the diagrams.

Crap we thought we lost you there for a second, thanks for the update this sounds simple. I did this conversion on my integra when I upgraded to xenon. When you post the pics I will start searching for a good deal on some euro headlights.

I know you guys are very excited. I was too!
Once I installed xenon headlight, I loved it so much!

I got it from local shop in Indonesia and because the labor fee is cheap here, I didn't want DIY this. All I heard from dealer was that they needed to remap the system.

Hope you guys get this kit and enjoy!
