FR-X Relay harness

I finally decided to work on my FR-X set up for my 01 325i. I'm a little confuse right now how to install my relay harness that came with it. Anyone got the 9006 relay harness from retrofit source inc?? This is a picture but only know to plug into the positive and ground cables. Anyone has instructions and just tell me off their head what cable goes where? I posted a pic.

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...=quad+bi+xenon

The kit consists of:

Ground + Battery power
Switched 12v which can be taken from the +ve feed of one of the existing headlights
2x outputs that will go into ballasts

If you want to install like I did, you will need to extend the 2 outputs.

Also, what are you actually trying to achieve?

go from Halogen to Xenon?
from factory Xenon to FXR Xenon
Quad Xenon?

Factory plug from halogen wiring --> Input of ballast
Factory plug from halogen high-beam --> theretrofitsource high-beam spliiter plugs --> bi-xenon projector Solenoid (2 red wires, polarity irrelevant) and to H7 factory bulb

You don't need their wiring. You WILL have a bulb-out warning, unless you code your car for Xenons or use (less desired) the capacitor mod

I got the slitter plugs,, and the can-bus harness that will delete the "light out" light from my car. I ended up getting the Morimoto 5Five package, the FX-R are the updated ones comepare to the you posted in the forum.
