year of the car is 2000. the european lights fit any 99-02 i believe. im just not sure which lights go where because the turn signal is moved from the far right to the new amber light on the european model, but on the us model the turn signal and the running lights are on the same bulb. i don't want the amber light being my running light, that would not look right.

ah
the easiest way to figure out which wire is which is to get a multimeter and take the bulb out, turn on the parking lights and see which wire has 12V on it. then turn on the blinker and see which one has 12V intermittently. The other will be ground. Mark them, splice them, reconnect, plug in and go!

i got them installed and everything. thanks for your help. but somehow in the process i blew the break fuse because the break lights do not come on and the car is stuck in park unless i manually move the lever to get it out of park but then my break lights are still not lighting. im hoping it's the fuse?
