    OEM Ecodes don't come with levelling motors.

    The motors aren't expensive either - almost half the price of the motors in pre-facelift headlamps.

    Nessy, I'm surprised your headlamps aren't satisfactory.

    I went from my OEM Bosch triple set-up to OEM RS4 HID units, and the difference is like night and day.

    Make sure your units are set for driving on the left, if they have the change-over lever.

    Also, if they're LHD units, you'll never get a decent beam pattern / illumination area.

    I have had another look at the bulbs and the bulb holder. The bulbs are almost definately 2 pin ones, however after checking the bulb holder, it doesnt appear to have a spring contact at the bottom for the base of the bulb. I'm going to try and retro fit something in place and see if this solves the problem, I'll take some pics of it once I'm done

    yer, it looks fine, but the bulbs really shouldnt be two pin items.

    the bulb you want is a "382" which has a single contact on the bottom and grounds using the frame, with a two pin bulb you risk shorting it out

    The bulbs do only have a single contact on the bottom.
