2SSRS, since you bumped and have done extensive R&D on this, can this tut apply to an 2SS? I still haven't pulled the trigger on on this, but I really want the Hallos on my car. It's clear I won't be able to do anything with out taking off the bumper, but I want to do my research before I tear open the front of the car.

Thanks in advance for any help

So how do I know which harness I need? On the GEN5DIY website, there are 2 options, ones $90, and ones $170. I am doing OEM RS lights. During the day, I want no lights on at all. I would like the halos to come on when the parking lights are on, and would like control over the the foglights with the HIDs on. Which harness do I need? Ready to buy ASAP, need by next week. Thanks!

LS3,
If you want no lights on during the day, I believe you will wanna go with the $170 harness. Here is a great thread to better answer your question.

It even has a video of how the $170 harness works.

The lesser harness will keep the lights on in the day time, the outer will not.

Were these OEM RS Headlights or Aftermarket?

Anyone have a thought to the aftermarket on these HID Halos? It seems the pricing is around $300-$400 for aftermarket or i can pick up used OEM for $600 with the ballasts.

Mine are OEM RS headlights.

I was in your exact same position not too long ago and I was highly advised to buy OEM because the aftermarket stuff is made in China which can brake anytime and does not look perfect.

IMO the extra $200 is DEFINITELY worth it.

Let me know if you have anymore questions bro!

2SSRS,

I am not sure if you remember the type of harness I got (can you tell from the tutorial?) but I am trying to add some DRL fog lights to my car and I was curious if that will just be plug n play with the harness I got or what I should do to hook them up?

Thanks!!
