Question Adjusting ebay projector/halo headlights?

I just bought these projector/halo headlights from ebay (i see a lot of people have them now) and I was wondering if someone could tell me how to adjust them more towards the ground so they aren't shining in other driver's eyes?





I would also like some input as to what the BEST bulbs would be for these lights.
Thanks!

I also need to know... I have the bottom right light set as my turn signal, and I no longer have my upper grill amber's hooked up. But my turns are blinking really fast and my dash is telling me that my blinkers are burnt out. Can anyone tell me how to get around this?

Also, i hit a deer about a week ago (which is the reason for the new headlights) and i was wondering if anyone knew where i could look for a cheap OEM hood, and right front fender?

Thanks again guys

Ok to the first guy, there should be a lil nob on the top of the headlights exactly like the stock ones that you turn and either left or right to make the projector go up or down. and for the second guy if your blinkers are blinking really fast then either you hook them up wrong or they are burnt out. take them out and check them right in front of you or just buy new bulbs so u know they will not be burnt out. U could find the hood and right front fender from either ebay or your local junk yard or if you want good ones i know a website which is www.certifit.com where u can find anything for your car thats exterior. so chekc it out

Wrong, do you even have these headlights?


Adjustment is 2 philips head screws below the projector bulb. One is for left/right, one is for up/down. If I remember correctly (I did it last night, actually), the one on the outside of the car, closest to the fender, is up/down, the other one (facing the engine) is left/right.. for both sides.

example:

Code:
 O

My headlights (the same ones you have) had that fast blinking problem, also. What I did was I swapped out the little bulb they put in and put a new bulb in. It was not blown but for some reason I guess it had a lower resistance so it acted like it was? I put in Silverstar blue/amber bulbs (3156 is the size, btw). That fixed the problem.

Ok, cool. Would I be able to get to the adjustments without removing the headlight from the car?

The quality is actually better than I expected.
Hi/Low bulbs are H1's, the turns are regular halogens idk the size.
They are REALLY bright with just the bulbs they came with..
The guy I bought from had a really bad rep and i didnt notice until after i had already paid.. I would look for someone with a good rep.
