HID install help please

I'm in the process of installing the DDM HID low beam, I received everything but no instructions came with it. Does anyone know what colour wires the HID black and red connect to, I have the choice of yellow or brown in the headlight unit.

I'm guessing the red from the HID unit goes to the yellow but I know its polarity sensitive and don't want to just guess.

thanks for your help

Brown is always ground in BMW schemes (earth is brown, get it? ). The low beam is White/Yellow.

On the DDM set, black is ground, red is feeder from low-beam socket (+, that is).
