I just got them also. the city light only comes on when the High beams are on. You can wire it into the front trun signal.

I also just got 2 realys to keep the lows on when the highs are on.

From what I have notice so far, the little smile on the bottom is like a fog light. It take the light from the focused beam and puts it threw there so som elight get on the road in front of the car. They work so well! It's like having fog lights on!

Now about the bulbs. There H1's not to many stores carry them. I got 1 set of 100w for the high and 85w for the low.

I just got my euro ellips from Bekker's... sweeet. I have always wondered what that cutout underneath the inner lens is for - any ideas? Also, is the city light (above the inner lens) supposed to come on with the running lights, turn off with the low beams and blink corresponding to the L&R turn signals?

I want to go as bright as possible with conventional bulbs (none of that "superwhite" crap). Are there any things to consider regarding the higher current draw with respect to wiring upgrades, relay installation or beefier fuse installation?

Vielen Dank!
