    LOL!!


    Are you changing from standard to S-Line?
    I believe the plugs are completely different it might be the same with the S3 fogs but not 100% sure.

    Had to cut the wires near the plug part, then trim the ends off the repair wire and stick them to the cut wires so they would fit into the new plugs, i never done this though me uncle put it all together for me using these lil tube things, sorry i can't explain because i don't know how it worked!

    Hehe no worries, do the old plugs use 2 wires? So i need 2 repair wires to go into the new plug? (i suppose the new plug uses also 2 wires? )
