Just installed a Bi-xenon Morimoto Mini Stage III Kit

Title says it all really. I ordered the TRS Bi-xenon Morimoto Mini Stage III Kit on Sunday night. I paid US priority mail (about 22 bucks) and they were on my step on Wednesday afternoon. Started the job at 2pm and took my time really and was completely done by 8pm. Could probably do it in half the time second time around though. I didnt paint anything so that helped out a bit. Would have done the BHLM except that I don't like the way it looks with the chrome grill surround so I stayed with all chrome. Here some pic and a short Vid:

Here is a shot of the beam pattern. Does it look correct? Vertical adjustment was easy enpough but I've really had a hard time tracking down exactly how HID's should be adjusted in the horizontal plane. Anyone out there have any ideas?

Looks good! Should raise the drivers side up a bit to make both step-ups the same.

How hard would you say the install is?
I did not really have any problems with these particualr lights as they are essentially plug and play. Though on my 2012 I had to dremel out the alignment slots to be able rotate them a bit to get the cutoff lines straight. Other than that it was pretty straight forward. Follow the directions and you should be alright. Now granted I have been a mechanic (aircraft and now Disney) for over 25 years so some things come a bit easier for me.

RossK35 and AsianAnts thanks for the tip i'm headed out to make the adjustment now!

Do you use the adjustment screws to raise the drive side up for the step to even?
