Lightbulb BI-LED Projector headlight retrofit switched ground issue

I discovered this after some sleuthing so I thought I'd author up the fix on the internet somewhere, for anyone else that might be struggling with the same issue.

The BI-LED Morimoto M LED 2.0 Stage III Projector headlight retrofit kit's controller is not directly compatible with older Japanese cars that have ground-switching high/low beam H4 wiring. The Morimoto is expecting a standard 12v switched output (meaning, the ground stays consistent, and the + switches w/ the hi/low selector). My old Subie is the opposite of that, so the second you plug in the high beam portion of the H4 to 9006F / 9006F splitter the car goes into high beam mode and will not switch back.

Fortunately there's a simple fix from LumaWerx, I purchased from here:

Hit me up here if you have any questions (no PMs please, thnx)
