not sure if this is the right place to post this but im wondering if any aftermarket projectors with xenon come with self levelling motors? because that would be a pain in the ass if you have to set them...?

There are some available but for the most part no. The reason being is that you have to retrofit a wiring harness for the auto leveling which is neither available through the dealer nor easy to install.

Autoleveling is a nice feature to have but is in no way necessary. You would not have to set anything, just aim the headlights and be on with it. The autoleveling only changes the headlight aim when the car's load is unbalanced causing the headlights to point up or down.

I like them ! Just a slight hint of blue...more like xenon =D...and not insanely bright either, so...definitely worth $30 or so, especially since they're basically plug & play (aside from the resistor tapping, which is easy)

If you are willing to cut apart your OEM headlights, you can do it.

However it would be cheaper, easier, and more effective to purchase our full headlight replacements (Projector46's).
