I've ordered a couple of LED auxiliary lights off Ebay, to add a little conspicuity to the '02 'R. The lights draw about 9w each.
I would like to have them switched on and off through the ignition, rather than putting a manual switch into the circuit.
A friend wondered if there was an unused, switched connection in the R wiring harness that would be available for wiring up the lamps. Does anybody know? So far as I know, the only addition to stock is my nautilus horn, which is plumbed into the horn circuit with a relay.
Assuming that BMW wasn't feeling in a generous mood when they designed the harness, what do folks do to wire in these little extras? Must seem simple, I know, but I'm always a bit leery of mucking about with the wiring. Guess I don't want to let the smoke out by mistake.
Cheers, and thanks,
