Hi, I need some help with the wiring part of installing my e30 euro smiley ellipsoids.....

i know a few months back I found an article on the web about it, but since e30.net seems to be down I can't find it

anyone have any advice?

Bring the euro ellipsoids to the dealer & they'll be able to find plugs from the e36. If I remember correctly you'll need the grey, white and yellow ones .

You can either buy the wire from the dealer or source them from a scrap yard somewhere. You can kludge something from Radio Shack but it won't be nearly as handy as the bmw wiring since they "fill out" the plugs and make it easy to plug them in and out.

I went from sealed beams to the ellisoids... I was able to build a wiring harness extension by just buying some spade crimps that would slide into the existing harness. If you have ellipsoids this part might be different.
