if your gonna put your bulbs in the headlamp sockets, you gotta extend the grille wires, as they are not long enough.
For the bulbs, I dunno which ones u need, try doing a search. As for wiring goes, it is almost the same as wiring our HID lights, check out www.ofoc.ca/hid for some tips, but dont complain to us if it is not acurate for your headlights, its just a guideline.

H1, H7, and the blinker is a basic bulb (forget the number).

the wires are a VW adapter... you have 10 wires total, 5 per side.

you need to insert wires to the 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 pins.

1: high +
2: low +
3: signal + (i think)
4: city + (i think)
6: ground

3/4 may be reversed... do a search here and check it.

the city light bulb is a 194.
H1, H7 for high / low.
And yeah, you'll need to splice / cut into the stock marker / signal lights and extend the wiring about 2 feet to connect to 3,4. there are 3 wires on the plug there. one is marker, one signal, the other is ground. extend the marker and signal wires. if you want, extend the ground and tie that into the other ground on the HU's as well, but you dont have to.

You are correct, the CITY LIGHT is used for your parking lights, they do nothing but light up and look like the shiznit at night.

RE: Citylights in the ST-170

Use a W5W bulb and not the 194. It's the same shape and plug-in design but it's twice as bright. The W5W is a GE# and should be found in most parts stores.
