I'm ordering a pair of these for my Golf 3 and was wondering about the install. What do I need to purchase along the line of wiring harnesses, mounting kits, etc.? Do I need to modify and thing on my car to get them to fit?(everything on my car is NA) What are the procedures for installing them? Thanks

Re: Installing ABT Dual Rounds? (nikocb)

You will have to modify the harness to accept the euro connectors.
You will aslo have to modify your NA rad support to accept the new lights.
A euro rad support and front rebar will fix the alignment problems you will have with mounting the new lights, but you will still have to rewire the harness.

I was looking at some how-to's and i think i got that part figured out. I was wondering though, how will the fitment be if i cut the NA rad sup? will it fit the same as the euro rad? Also can any tell me what i have to do about the wiring harness?

niko,
my buddy Bill has the ABT dual rounds and the NA rad support, and his fits just fine, You will possibly need to cut the rad support slightly (in roughly the same place as you would for MkIV-look or hella dual rounds.

I'm gonna have to check with him about the wiring, but i believe it was a cut 'n' splice job. I think he's on vacation, so it might be a day or two before i can get an answer.

Niko,
I also did the ABT install on my car, NO modifying the radiator support, just bolt in and adjust. I did, however, have to cut the factory connectors and splice the ABT ones onto the existing wires, took about 2 hours to do the entire job, including wiring relays into the 100/130 low/high combinations (Hella upgrade), and used the inner lights as a "rally", or "fog" in the first position of my Euro switch. If you can wait a couple days (have to work all day tomorrow), I'll send you a diagram of what you need to do to make them work...
