Installation Process

Before we dive into the installation process, it's important to ensure the ignition is off and the battery is disconnected, to prevent electrical issues.

Step 1: Preparation and Removal of Front Bumper
  1. Lift the car using a lift or jack to create enough space to work comfortably.
  2. Remove the plastic pieces and items surrounding the front section of the car.
  3. Carefully detach the grills and other necessary components.
  4. Take off the wheels to gain access to the fender liner.
  5. Remove the screws holding the fender liner in place.
  6. Disconnect any connectors and carefully pull out the fender liner. Repeat the process on the opposite side of the car.
  7. Remove the plastic fasteners and bolts holding the front bumper.
  8. Gradually detach the front bumper by tugging and pulling it from both sides. Take your time to ensure a smooth removal process.

Step 3: Accessing and Installing the LED DRL Boards
  1. Locate the DRL module on the backside of your headlights.
  2. Remove the module by unscrewing 3 torx screws.
  3. When removing the module, be careful as it has a connector that needs to be unplugged.
  4. Carefully remove the existing DRL boards from the module.
  5. Install the new DRL boards in the same position and secure them in place.
  6. Ensure that the connections are secure and the boards are properly seated.
  7. Reinstall the module to your headlight.

Step 4: Installing The Bluetooth controller
  1. This step is only for the RGB+W variant! To properly control the light of the DRL boards, it is necessary to install the Bluetooth controller. Follow the included instructions and place the controller in the engine compartment, using either double-sided adhesive or zip ties to secure it to the underside of the core support.

Step 5: Testing
  1. Before we continue with the installation, please check the function. Connect your headlight as a test (take a soft cloth and place the headlight on the front of the vehicle to connect the plugs or place the headlight directly in the original position without fixing it), also connect the battery and test for function.
  2. The same applies to the RGB variant, except that the app called "Colorful Lights" must also be downloaded (available for IOS and Android). Open the app and connect to the Bluetooth module. Now test different colors, brightness levels, and modes.

Step 6: Reassembling the Car
