After removing the battery access panel look for the windshield washer nozzles. The wires you are looking for go directly to the nozzles.
You'll need to establish the hot (+) from the ground (-) because unlike incandescent bulbs, LEDs are polarity specific. A simple 12-volt test light will do the job if you don't have a meter.

Can you blow the LEDs if you get + and - mixed up?
I will be posting photos of the DRL wiring as soon as I get the spars. However if you can't wait, there are two wires to the washer heaters: black with brown stripe, black with orange stripe. The orange one is +ve, the brown -ve.
I pre-ran the wiring today in anticipation of these LED's which I don't have yet haha. I went a little overboard though. I took off the bumper and ran wiring from the left side to the right side where I merged the wires. The remaining single (+ and -) wires were run through the gasket on the front wall of the front tub into the trunk and along the inside of the right side of the tub. I then ran them through the rear tub wall gasket into the battery tray area and tapped them into the right side windshield washer squirter with an inline fuse on the positive wire just for some extra protection.
Rsg: I admire your excess... Since I have also pre-wired my DRLs, I award you the Oscar for going totally over the top! Since the heater circuit is already fused, another fuse seems a little unnecessary, and I am able to deliver the power wires to the spars without removing the bumper. And they sit nicely under the plastic that surrounds the frunk and don't run through it. I'm interested to see photos of your layout! Just proves there are many ways to skin the proverbial cat.
I am so excited!!
I changed my 07 tail lights to the 09+ LED ones.
I changed all my interior lights to LEDs
I changed my oem halogens to HID
Just need these LED spars and I will consider my car a gen 3 CS
Looking forward to getting these...
I was an early Feb order, forgot to write down my number...any word on when I should expect them?
I have also cut the connectors off the city lights to attach to the wires I ran for the led spars so that if I ever need to take the bumper off I can disconnect the spars from the connector so I am not stuck in a hard wired situation having to cut or remove the wires should the situation arise.
rsg: can you confirm my observation in post 366 above, that the polarity of the heater wires is black/orange (+), black/brown (-)?
Here is mine. I love them!
Dropped my car off at Green Motorsport for the install. I know it's a simple DIY'er but I don't have any time this week to do it and I really did not want to wait another week to install them. Anyway here are some pics. They told me they finished in 15 minutes and very simple to do
^^ now that IS bright! congrats
Congrats gentlemen. I'm thrilled to see the pictures. Although, I am a bit sad that I am no longer the only guards red CS rocking these puppies! Keep the pics coming all!
