    The best way to figure out which ones to use run a wire to the battery and then one for a ground. One wire should be one color and the other wire should be the other color. I still have not had mine wired yet. I will try to do mine sunday and I will let you know for sure which is which. They should not be to hard. I have to put in my other fender lights at the same time.

    Having a blue light that can flash is illegal any where. I had the same problem with that on mine. I almost had mine imponded because of that. So I'm only gonna use the amber color on mine.

    hmm well maybe i will go change the bulbs today
    as for the mirrors; would i have to remove the door panels to wire them up?
    i saw that there is a hole on the outside of the door and it goes partway into the door but not all the way through to the inside... how would i wire them up to teh front turn signals?

    Well since I'm adding a set of fender lights I'm gonna run wires from my corner marker lights to the fender light and then to my mirrors. As far as how to run the wires through th door. If you have power windows and locks I would take off the door panel and route the wires through the same spot where the wires run into the door. Then I would run the wires through the fender and put a wire loom over the wires to protect the wire from being cut. I'm not an expert but that is the best way I can think of doing it. I've got a nasty cold so I'm gonna start after lunch. I hope this helps. I chose the corner marker lights because it would be easier to wire to them then to the bumper lights.

    I did it finnally. I have them wired in to work. But the only time they work is when the parking lights are on. I could not get them to work otherwise. It would have been nice to have the info to wire them in the correct way. Now if I can only find some power mirror switches to make them work. If I don't they still look good. But now I also have a set of import sytle side marker lights. They give it a different look. How did yours go?

    If you bought the same ones I have they are power mirrors. Just be sure you use the white, blue, and black wires going to the leds. The others are for the power mirror option. They sell them without that optin also. When you adjust them be careful the mirror can come off if you do it to hard.

    I know what you mean about the drill bits. I broke 3 of them. But it was worth it. The m3 mirrors are a cool addition to anyones ride. :bigthumb:
