you just wire them in parallel after the switch.

to put it simply and give you a better under standing.

you have 1 cable coming into the switch, and on the other side of the switch you will have multiple wires, (doesn't have to be exactly like that but it gives a better view on what parallel wiring is). just remember if you put the switch on the + then multiple wires will all be the positives also.

the - can either go to a common - like the metal body, or to a negative cable picked up from nearby, both should work fine.


-----+/^\-----+/^\----
This is series, + connects to negative of previous load, after the first one.

+ _
|-----/^\------|
|-----/^\------|
This is parallel all positives for each load are connected and all negative for each load are connected, (not all at one point) more a common + for each and a common - for each



Also there is no Noob Question, except the question that is unasked

Newb question:
I've just changed my stock bulb with Philips HID kit 6000k about 2 months ago.
Recently, whenever I switch on the lights, the front left side bulb flickers slightly before fully operating (during warming up).
However, it doesn't flicker when its fully lit though.
Is that a serious problem? or it is normal?
any info is appreciated!

Hids flicker a bit while they warm up, thats why you dont really use HID kits in your high beams, coz they need to warm up to be at maximum output, dont worry about it :D

Its just been recently though about 2 weeks back.
A few weeks after I got them on, has no flicker at all. just pure changing colour during the warm ups.
The reason why I am concerned about is that when I first received the HID kit, half of the box was wet (ordered it from singapore).
So I'm not sure if that could cause problems with the kit.

Most people go with ebay. I went to Malz and got some but tbh the ones off ebay were better and way cheaper so I returned the Malz ones and went for ebay. If you look back through this thread and the numerous threads that talk about LEDs then you will find all the answers.

Anybody else have Narva Arctic Blue bulbs installed? I popped them into my RA the other day and am quite disappointed with the colour. Basically looks almost exactly like the halogen globes that were in it except a touch lighter. Anybody else seen this issue? Or, stupid question, do they lighten a bit after a few hours?

Cheers

I've been told to be careful of which bulbs i select to change my headlights to the blue/white without having HID's. My headlight covers are plastic and apparently they will go yellow if i chose the wrong ones.

Any recommendations on what brand & brightness i should use.
