HID install problem
I installed my HID kit a while ago. The kit is good, but the light beam is pointing down-wards and doesnt shoot out straight. I try to turn the light bulb here and there, and still couldnt get it right. It clips on the relgular metal clip thing that goes over the light bulb. I dont know wat is wrong...maybe fabricate it to go further into the tube? to make the light HID bulb closer to the front? dont know, help please!!! confused

you need to use spacers too either hoolow out the stock ones or make some

i found after i did mine that the beam pattern was pretty clsoe it was just a lil high

but it i did have a crazy beam pattern in th eone cause i didn't have it in straight cause of the spacers


hey thats a 20 minute phone call

that lil black piece of plastic that attached to your stock bulbs that then attached to your stock wiring... thats a spacer its spaces you need to either hollow that one out or make your own if your having this much trouble with this concept you might wanna take it to a shop so you don't blow up your bulbs

im not trying to be a dick btw
