You don't need any adjustments at all

It just fit perfectly. (if your kit is real product)

forgot to mention..... if anyone is thinking of buying hid's go for the real deal. philips. 6000k usually retail for ~$900. 5000k ~$750. cheap knock off's like k2's, eaglelite,...etc are known to have lots of problems...

no high beam man have to disable drl(daytime driving lights) too. problem with hid blubs is it is nearly impossible to get highs because the way how the blub was designed.... there are some hid kits that claim you keep your high's but i don't see how this is possible. probably have a mechanical motor to shift position of the bulb or something.

This is the thread I had read a while ago. I read other threads that mentioned they were the same too.

I guess you could be right in the fact that the bulbs are different with each kit.

ballasts are philips. blubs are made by someone else. makes sense since a lot of people have had problems with their blubs. who knows. i don't have any experence with eaglelite products. just hear from word of mouth. lol.

when buying a hid kit make sure all the parts are genuine philips. i know some kits use modified philips parts and don't come with much of a warranty.
