Re: Help! How do I retrofit...

Yea, that's how it's going to operate. Remember you tapped the solenoid on the xenon projector to the halogen high beam lights so they are going to operate at the same time.

Re: Help! How do I retrofit...

it looks like the left one is pointing a little low, is that what you're referring to?

Both the headlights seem to do this zigzag pattern. It's not that the left headlight is low, they both do that. Is this normal?

yeah that's normal, it's the cutoff line all projectors have them.

Yeah I know the projectors have a clear cutoff line but when there is a zigzag like the white line I drew I was uncertain whether that was the way it is supposed to be or not.
