Scott, were you ever able to keep the auto leveling feature?'

I ordered after market headlights from carparts.com but did not come with ballast and xenon bulb or the auto leveling motor, basically just the plastic housing.

nope....never bothered. Its not really needed and would be VERY expensive if it can be done.

Re: How to Ver2: make 2008 HID WK headlights plug and play on 05-07 WK's

I bought a set of lights second hand and the person was dishonest about some stuff so I'm not really sure what I have or if something is missing. Im going to attach some pics. There are two brown wires and one tan wire. I bought some new 9006 plugs and have one relay but it appears a 9006 plug is already half hooked up.
Can someone clarify what is needed to do? I have this mess of taped up wires I was hoping I could cut everything away. This is for a 2005 if it matters.




Thanks for all your help
