I will chalk it up to a first time mistake. But the rest of the swap was Easy Peezy.
Hey I appreciate it. I'll be doing this next month most likely.

Yes h13 and well I run ddm and so do several people I know and I've never had an issue but ddm is the only ones I know that are cheap and cause no issues. I use to buy some from a company called hidgate and never had issues but I'm not sure if they are still up and running. But several people swear by that retrofit website as well.

Yeah just saw the ones on the retrofit website for $160, I don't mind paying that amount if the quality is what it says it is.

Anything is possible. Ive seen a bunch of people take aftermarket ebay projector headlights apart and put in MH1 or OEM projectors but I have no experience with the headlights you speak of.

Use the grounds already on the car...

There's one right near the battery, two on the driver side inside the engine bay behind the light, and one on the passenger side shock tower.
