Is there any spot for leveling motors? I know the st170 with hid's has automatic headlight leveling, and since they have the euro plug then maybe it would have leveling.
To be honest, I can't really tell if there is a place to install headlamp motors on MACH's. On my in.pros I think there was a place. I dunno what the motors even look like...maybe they can be custom fitted somehow to the housings.

I take back what I said above...looks like the motors fit into where the lower adjustment knob is located in the headlamp housing...this is beginning to look plausible.

Indeed it is...



Did your depos come with the back plate? The one to access the bulbs? I found a link that says it doesnt come with that as why.

I also noticed the projector lenses arent perfectly clear. If theyre 2.5" i have the perfect clear lenses to go with that!

I also noticed its hella ballasts and ignitors. so it wont be that hard to get a hold of them. just really expensive

Yeah I swapped the DEPO bulb covers with the OEM covers (OEM ones have the High voltage sticker...+10 HP lol). My OEM MACH's have 3" diameter lenses...sorry bro looks like your 2.5" lenses aren't gonna fit. The DEPO projectors however came with bigger AND clear lenses!

Have a link to your MACH's?

bonus post count lol

ST170's are good if you want the European look. I miss my in.pros, but I gave up the looks for some practicality.

Projectors > st170/in.pros at night

St170/in.pros > Projectors in daylight

Well, to me theyre both got the european look. If i got them, i was probably going to keep the rings chrome and paint the housing gunmetal.

I would love HID's though. i drive a lot at night, so it would be nice. If i could fit the fx bixenons, it would be the ultimate headlight lol!

Sorry it's in pieces now



That's a pic of when I first got them. I used epoxy to patch up the holes (both headlights looked this bad). Outside lenses were not cracked, and internals were in good shape. Just needed to super glue one of the adjustment arms to the RH internal assembly, and get new bulb covers, and an igniter. When I got my Mach-a-likes on thursday, the first thing I did to my old MACH's was take everything apart, and trash the black housings. I may sell off the parts eventually. Just wanna see how the knock-offs do for now.
