In depth install info

Not sure if this has been posted before, or if it is 100% accurate but I found this while surfing. It is a really well done write up in two sections.

A)E30 Headlight Wiring instructions Converting sealed beam to ellipsoid/european style headlight systems using single filament bulbs

B) E30 fog light wiring instructions, conversions allowing for independent fog light operation in sealed beam and ellipsoid style headlight systems

both are in PDF format.

here are the links
A)E30 headlight wiring instructions:

B)Fog Light wiring instructions:

Hope this helps, have not had a chance to fully read it yet, so if anyone can verify its accuracy please do.

This would have been better posted in the E30 section.

It can move

I posted it in general, obviously didnt think about the e30 application. If a mod reads it, feel free to give it a boot over to E30. I know I will be using it very soon. Just happy I was finally able to add something useful to the forums , god I have just been asking for info and advice for so long, its nice to maybe help someone else out.
cheers guys

I don't get it, you'd be able to run your fog lights independently of the rest of your lights?

Can someone explain a little more of what these two do and why you'd want them?
