First of all, the fuses should have been changed to 15 Amp, 25's are way too big and will cause problems if there ever is a short. In order for the lights to swing up on start up (and pivot up to fill in the high beams on the road), you need to install a control module in the headlight harness:

Here is a photo of the complete aftermarket kit from Carnewal in Belgium, you can see the wiring and the small red colored box with the control unit in it:

can you please give me the part number ? also where do i need to put this ( which slot ?) ( and thanks for the tip about the amps) i ll change that tommorow first thing.

You can read the part number in the photo. The unit connects into the wiring harness with a wiring kit that should have come with the lights:

hmm.. i only bought the light units not the wiring .. i might need to find out where to get it and where and how to connect them... it cannot hurt right to use it without the additinal wiring ?

It can be used with out the control unit, but you will not get the maximum impact of the lights as they cannot swing up to fill in on high beams, which is very impressive once you have seen it.................... The wiring and the control unit should be available from a dealer.

Sliderr:

Here is a link to another DIY for Litronics installation, complete with part numbers: http://www.skylersrants.com/

Once you get on that page, click on "Skyler's Boxster" near the top left, then when that page comes up, click on "Litronics Installation". (I couldn't figure out how to post a direct link to that page).

BTW, JFP is exactly correct about the fuses. The '97 Boxsters did not have Litronics even as an option, so the smaller fuses were standard in the fuse panel. When the Litronics were offered as an option, the fuses were upped to 15amps.

Regards, Maurice.

One small detail, if your car has a Dutch licence plate, you never past true the APK. You need all the parts including, headlight washers, height sensors, etc. and they should work as well. I would first inform me to the competent authorities.
