Help: Projector46 S Facelift install

The headlights came without installation instructions... How do I attach the signal light to the headlight?

Also, how do I hook up the DDE? The cabling seems to be cryptic. If you have instruction page, would you send it to me please? Thanks!

It's from Umnitza. I finally found the instruction page at umnitza.com. Now I need to decide whether to use ECU (on at position 1) or hook it up to the fog...

I kind of like it to be able to turn on / off from the inside by turning on / off fog.

It's actually not hard to install... But I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to get the signal light stay in place... I spent a lot of time looking at my scrap box to find some mount that I can put in there. I ended up using a bolt screwed to the signal light to hold it in place. I had to grind a little bit of the side wing to make some room for the bolt:





Other than that, I had great success. I don't have the dreaded check low beam message. Cool. Thanks Umnitza!

There are no "two headlight bolts" that hold the headlight in place that are below the bumper.

They are just behind the low beam inside near the radiator.

I can't find a place to attach the turn signal! Any ideas? Or is this going to have to be a bootleg install by modifying oem setup?
