Hi guys,

I know that this thread is quite old but I couldn't find anything related to my question except this one, so I decided to continue and post it here. I bought these same lights not too long ago because my original lights have turned yellow/faded and I have had it restored several times but it would just return to yellow after a few months. So I decided to do a little mod and went for this look.

It is pretty much plug and play, however I do need help as to how I can take advantage of all the lights on the new ones. The original lights has 6 pins and the new lights came with 9 pins, does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can connect the additional 3 pins?

New lights has 9 pins:

Just to update, I got everything working but not happy with the lights. It looks nice but the projector light was vibrating and its obvious, everything was done correctly and the lights were not broken in any way. All the supports and bracket were intact and tight. So I wasn't happy with it and will be returning these lights. Currently, I'm looking at maybe just retrofitting my original lights with the MINI H1 projectors and replace the faded/yellow plastic covers with new ones. We'll see how it goes.
