Question E30 euro lights

HI! I replaced my sealed beam headlights on my 1987 325i with
euro ellipsoid smileys. (high beams as well). Does anyone know
how to wire them so all 4 lights come on when I turn on the highs ? I know the sealed beam lows were dual filament bulbs so thats why both came on, but whats the trick to make that happen with these h1 bulbs ?

Thanks..

Jari

I'm sorry I can't answer youractual question but I was wondering if you could tell me how hard it was to wire up the euro ellipsoid lights... What exactly did you have to do?

I just ordered a set off eBay from Germany so I will have them soon. How much did you pay for yours?

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
now why couldn't I find this site when I did google searches for hours on end..

I will try the relay trick suggested on saturday and let you all know how it went..

By the way, I bought the euro's over a year ago from a parts store in Finland. The low beam side was about 60ish euros each, and the low beams were around 30 euros each. The expensive part was buying the bracket to replace my sealed beam bracket. Dealer item.. plus all the hardware.. clips aiming screws etc etc..

man you made my day dude by posting that site..
thanks champ

cheers

You're welcome! That site came in handy when I did my lights as well...

When looking for those lights I would highly recommend German Ebay.


Cheers,
Nick
