My Ride: White '08 STI
Projector mounted, aim is initially set. Rotation will be off, I just know it

Backside view - there will be another bracket to adjust the low beam in relation to high beam

Backside view of the LEDs behind the shroud. I'm not done yet because I ran out of heatshrink

Testing out both headlights on my car. Note, I have a facelift sedan, but these are pre-facelift headlights. They still mount up to the stock mounting positions. The question I have is: Are the mounting points the same between facelift and pre-facelift? Meaning, if I were to aim these 100% in rotation for my car, would it be wonky on a pre-facelift car?

I have ordered E30 clear lenses (instead of TSX-R). Hoping to have those in by the end of the week. That should help me when I'm finalizing aim and rotation issues.

For now, I leave you with these gifs! Car was parked ~45ft away from the wall.

Both lights on

Driver side only. There is a weird bowing happening. Hopefully I can correct this...

Passenger side only. Might need 1-2 degree ccw rotation

Low beam high beam! The projectors have to be aimed better in relation to their respective high beams. This can be fixed easily.
