I was wondering if it is much rewiring to be done when replacing the standard ellipsoids with the euro ellipsoids. If so, are instructions included or readily available?

I have these (Bosch version) lights on my M3 as fitted to the Evo Sport 2.5. There are no instructions. You have to convert the connectors to the 2 prong type. There are 3 different shaped color coded connectors to use available from the dealer (yellow, grey and white) 3 for each pair of lights so you need 6 total. 1 - low beam 1- high 1 for city lamp. Splicing into the factory wiring is a piece of cake if you have the proper terminals/connectors. The bulbs are H1's by the way.
