Default Headlights and Mirrors

Good afternoon subie fam. I've got a couple things here. So when I wasn't working on the car this winter I picked up a couple retrofits. Headlights and mirrors. I have searched the forums here and other sites. I've got a 06 WRX. I want to put STI leveling headlights into the car. I have the headlights. Got a leveling switch. Not sure if anything else is needed to get them to work properly like a module or what not. Second is JDM folding mirrors. I have the mirrors and the folding mirror switch. I heard of people wiring them up to fold in when the car is off and fold out when turned on. Now I'm no wiring guru. The retrofit part will not be a problem. Any help with the process or pointers to look out for is much appreciated.

Assuming your headlights have the leveling motors, you just need to wire them to the switch

So the wiring straight from the headlight to the switch? No modules or relays between?

No it just needs to be connected to fused power, ground etc and wired as indicated, as that wiring will be absent from your car if it did not have levelling motors from factory

Thank you for your input. Much appreciated. I contacted iWire to see if I can get it all plug and play. I'll see what they can do
