One less hassle for me.
Dude, there is like 2 wires you plug into one of the harness in an empty slot, in the fuse box under the hood. You don't even have to splice or anything as the wires have the proper connector pins on the ends.

Then you plug a little box into the inside fuse panel called a relay.

After that, you unscrew 3 screws to get at the ignition harness and use a plastic quick connect to tap 2 wires together.

Taking off the bumper is, what, 7 or 8 small bolts?

Take about 30 minutes, max.

Go ahead and pay $1000. How about I come and do it for $500?

You live anywhere near PA?

Oh, ok.

Well, for $100 that's not too bad.

Someone on here said $1000 lol.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck!

I think that was some dealer price or something someone got quoted. I feel like the labor of $100 is fair. The shop I'm taking the car to has done them before, so I guess they know. I just want to make sure they get them installed on the park lights.

Having someone else do it is a good idea. I remember when I did that with my tach, the shop had to run around to a few places trying to find the wiring diagram. So glad I didn't have to figure that out myself.

And you wouldn't need to as ctscott has shown exactly which wires need tapped.

Hey once I'm out of the Army, I'll be nearby!

And speaking from my experience in the Army, NW PA is not the butthole of the US... Alabama and Missouri come to mind...

Oh, and New York sucks too; I can't wait to leave.

Kevin,
You can either buy one of the kits from Garm or go the eBay route really. Garm will back up the product. Your best best is to PM Brian here if you choose to buy the kit from Garm to hear about any "gotchas" if there are any. The projector kit that Garm sells seems to be really high quality. You can then have some third party aftermarket styling shop do the install and it should cost a couple hundred at most if you don't feel that you are qualified to perform the work. Like sleey0 said the sedan at least has a way to plug directly into the factory stalk which is convenient. The biggest hassle for me was having to take apart the bumper assembly twice since the kit I bought (eBay) came with a pad projector. On the up side, the kit that I bought came with OEM bezels so they fit 100% whereas there have been several folks that bought them and it didn't come with correct bezels....the fitment was just "ok". Either way, I would take it to a shop that does restyling and custom installs in vehicles rather than a mechanic. The biggest reason I suggest that is that mechanic shops tend to get your interior much more dirty than one of those other shops. Just my 2 cents.
