    For helping me get my new HID's squared away. Headlights and fogs will now give the sun some competition.

    Looks good Ron, did you mount your ballast in the same spots I did?

    I miss my HID's. I couldn't get them working correctly with the OEM headlamp switch. I tried relay harness and the caps/resistors, they would just blink on and off. I rigged a separate on/off switch for them but that was too cumbersome so I removed them :(

    I think E has been using this particular company for a couple of years without issue. I think the trick is to go cheaper in order to get a system that works.

    Is there some kind of "trick" to proper headlight adjustment? I installed HIDs too but I have no idea if I lined them up right.

    If you have the OEM style, the casing does have adjustment rods

    Should be adjustment screws that moves the entire housing just like most other cars. Locate the screws and then go point your truck at a brick wall or garage door at night and line the beams up.

    I've got a brand new pair of 2008 Acura TL Bi-Level Xenon projectors and ballast.

    Id love to figure out a way to mount them in the headlight assembly and have badass projectors. Just don't know how to do it- or the time.

    Oh yeah I know where the screws are and how to adjust them physically, I was just talking about where the beam should actually be. Is there a certain height at a certain distance I should be aiming for?

    Thats…..thats HOW you adjust the beam… Like I said park about 20 feet away from a garage door, turn on your headlights and have them about waist level and even.

    You'd have to bake them and probably modify the inner housing with a dremel, but it would be cool.
