Thanks for the link I've been thinking of other headlight options and these look like they are just what the doctor ordered.
I Don't know why. But everybody's always talking about their STI or That guys EVO, I think I'll stick with my old, but reliable AmC. Did I ever tell you I was Full blooded Eagle?

The Google Linked photos still aren't showing. Someone else on here has been using Google Photos as well and he's had some issues and had to fix some things, but seems to have figured it all out.

His project thread is here if you want to talk to him about how to get the photos to work.

I am confused by what this means: You also have to reverse the to side light wires on the low beam plug.  I turned the plug 180 and they come on.  When I hit the brights the other lights come on but the lows turn off.  Obviously, I'm missing something...

Can you be a little more clear? Did you purchase some LED headlights also and are having trouble getting them to work properly? If so, the new headlights are probably wired like H4's and will require you to move your terminals in the connector.

Thanks.  That makes sense.  Did you guys rewire the car plug or the lights?

Car plugs I'm assuming.  I haven't done much with electrical, but I'm motivated.

Never mind.  I had the screen too small to read the fix on the right...

I finally got the headlights figured out...  Maybe.  Before I had a whole headlight on for brights and low beams.  Now I have half of a headlight on for lows and a whole headlight on each side on for high beams.  Is this correct?  I would assume I would have all 4 on for highs and 2 on for lows.

That is correct.  2 for low and 4 for highs. I didn't move my original connectors  because I installed relays and new connectors with larger gauge wiring. There is most likely a little prong that sticks out that holds the terminal in the connector that you can bend with a very small eyeglass flat head screw driver and then pull the terminals out of the connector, bend the prong back and reinstall them in their new position.

Yep that's how mine work. I read a thread some place online  that talks about how to get all 4 to come full on. I might be in the reviews on Amazon. I think they are bright enough when on high beam.

Also still have had no issues with mine. Seem like a good product.

Thank you.  Is this the right way to hook them up?

I started reading that thread and thought man that sounds familiar. Then I realized it was me who wrote it. :)  Yes, relays help give full voltage to the headlights. There is voltage drop through the factory small gauge wiring and switch.

Lol.  Thank you then.  I just got the  relays and will install them tomorrow.  I sure hope this fixes it...  I also will be hooking up the second side of my exhaust tomorrow.  True dual exhaust, so a long day.
