    The projector fits into the stock bulb hole in the headlight housing. It tightens down with a nut on the back side of the headlight. You just rotate the projector to keep the beam horizontal. You can adjust it endlessly to your liking by turning it.

    You shouldn't need the adapter plates for our headlights.

    The ones that are $60 are usually either a older version or are not tuned for optimal output.

    Looking into doin' this retrofit, but I have one question . Why cant we use our oem low/high switch to trigger the bi-xenon selenoïd. There must be a way to do it.

    You can, you either plug the 9005 high beam plug into the projector or run a high beam splitter

    Just do it however you want :) Tie it into light beam trigger wire :)

    Or whatever else you want :)
