Got them to work fine, wow wow wee wow are they friggin bright.:thumbsup: I put 8000K's in the low beams and fogs. I think one of LB's aren't aligned correctly, i tried searching on the forum for the way to adjust the angle of the bulb, but couldn't find it,

so the million dollar question is....how do i adjust the angle of the bulb?

Good job. What makes you think one of the LBs isn't aimed correctly? I believe that they normally aim one of them a bit off-center to reduce glare for oncoming drivers. I think you're more likely to screw up the headlamp alignment than fix it if you try to do it yourself. Maybe others will feel differently ...

Ok here... Turn that screw in there. I can't remember which way is up and which way is down so you'll have to experiment. Just so you know, the left is supposed to be lower, like this: http://www.jon04ctsv.com/images/hidcutoff.jpg (My car was on a slant, so it looks like the lights are pointed very low here)

is this an HID tutorial?
I just put in my fogs, and i'm going to do the headlights tomorrow... I'm a bit concerned about moisture leakage, so a tutorial would be great

anyone got a link to this???

I show you how to get to the headlights... but I didn't take any pictures after that.
I think this should help quite a bit, thanks!

Any suggestions on avoiding moisture leakage?
From what I recall, there is drilling involved with the headlight housing?
Figures when I need the information the most, the search button is not being very helpfull.

I just want to make sure I have everything ready to go tonight, since I only have about 2 hours to work on it.
