In the nice write up, it was stated: "When you put the bulb into the socket, the wire on the exterior of the bulb goes on top."

With respect to that comment on the bulb wire, I have seen references to positioning the wire "down", to the "outside", etc. My question is "which location of the bulb wire is optimal and why?"

Thanks,

Tony

I believe that it's because of how the kit's adapter to the OEM socket fits. It's possible that other kits have their bulbs positioned differently in their adapters. I don't see any wire or dark spots.

Thanks, I have my wire pointed down and the HID's seem fine. Could be that it really doesn't matter a whole lot as I have researched this on various boards and came up with a lot of different variations.
