Default quick retro system

I've looked around alot and couldn't find much information but anyway I ordered the quick retro system for my 07 and the only hardware I got was the six bolts to mount the ballasts to the headlight, isn't it supposed to come with longer screws and nuts to mount the projector in ar am I missing something?

Also when I put the projector in there seems to be no way of aligning the top to holes up unless I cut off the screw holes on the projector or cut a little away from around the area where the ball joint is.
Thanks for any help

After installation, make sure the hotspot center is close to the lower cutoff bend. The performance of the Mini D2S varies greatly depending on how centered the hotspot is. I didn't realize the center could be fiddled with by merely tugging onto the ballast connector cap. Also, the rubber washer + metal c-ring need to be placed behind the hid capsule in the correct order. The other way increases the ability for the capsule to be misaligned.

The one on the right has the hotspot center hiding above the cutoff line. Adjusting the pitch upwards (i.e. pushing the ballast connector cap upwards) would correct this.


Also, if you haven't sealed the headlights already, you might want to consider adding a foreground limiter shield, assuming these will be your main/only bixenon source in your headlights. For sedan-height vehicles, the foreground spillover of the Mini D2S is too much for highway driving; it puts too much light nearby much like a fog light in addition to its distance light.

Thanks guys, did anyone who did this find the projectors aimed higher than stock after screwing them in? I put a few washers in to have it even to the original, im trying to keep the high beam where it was so I don't have to point it down with the levelers moving the high beam down too
