Factory HID lighting is going to be your best bet, but our new SL1 is a great lighting performance upgrade in factory reflector style housings

We will have more information available when it's closer to being released

There is a vertical (height) adjustment screw on each housing. It's covered in the shop repair manual.

Iirc it's a 5mm hex (best option) with a Phillips "hole" in the center (worst option). If you have an assortment of 1/4 drive short extensions, sockets and ratchet (and small Trump-sized hands) you can easily reach the adjuster screws. Iirc the right side is tighter but the radiator overflow bottle comes out easily enough.

NOTE: There was a Mitsu recall about water getting into the reflector assys and the "fix" was to cover up that adjustment screw head.

I have pics somewhere.

Downshiftt That's what I like to hear. Do you have a set date on the release of your product? Or am I safe on purchasing something from overseas as for now?

How do you feel about these in a normal halogen housing?? My headlights are as basic as a 95 Cavalier. Would like to do anything possible without spending tons of cash.

Thanks!

They produce a street legal output pattern, which meets all DOT compliance requirements, however, they will not undergo the DOT certification process.
