Hey guys,

Ideally I would like to work alongside you and learn while we go through the install. I would compensate you for your time and space. Any takers let me know

What exactly are you looking to do? We might have an instruction guide for it.

I just want to install these, the only thing is I don't have the necessary tools or the space. I live in the city with no area that I can do this.

Don't know if this helps, but here's a page of instruction guides. https://new.minimania.com/Search_Results/LED/Articles.
Maybe one of them will be what you need.

I have tools and space (although the garage is a bit crowded this winter), but I'm not very experienced with electrical.. Couldnt see in your link what you need done.

Hey Ernesto,

This is what I'm trying to do:

Just want to install the OEM daytime running leds to replace my current fogs.
Are you in Skokie? I'm actually out there a lot.

I just did the headlights on my R56 and tapped the DRLs into the lower fogs. I didn't actually take the fogs out, but it looks like a pretty easy DIY job! Where in the city are you?

If you feel like giving it a go yourself, and I highly recommend you do, check out gearheadworkspace.com. It's a DIY shop in Armour Square. They have all the tools and space you could possibly need and usually there are other around to lend a hand.
