So the headlights will come on but they are very dim and look as if they are pointed directly at the ground. The brights won't even come on either. Is there an adjustment screw that for whatever reason is off on both sides? I do know that the headlights don't look stock and the taillights are definitely not.

So after some tinkering and research, I think these headlights are for a different model or non-US spec model. Everything just doesn't fit very well and the corners are held on by zip-ties. The headlights were also shoved into the rubber cover to hold them in place...  grr Some people...

From what I see, my headlights should have the high/low beams separate where as this one does not. How far off am I?

If so, looks like I just need new assemblies and I'll be good to go (and yes I know I need a new grille, suggestions?).

yes they are the aftermarket / copies of the BZ Touring corolla headlights, there should also be corners with them, but looks like you have oem US corners.

They hold a h4 bulb (dual filament (hi/low in one bulb), ill try to find you the wiring diagram for it

They are adjustable, there should be a screw at the back of the headlight unit.

Yep, just get the USA head lights again (you have several styles from which to choose) and it will all fit together again.

Ok perfect. The grille is USDM though right? I do need another grille as well.

Despite them looking almost identical in size, it's always best to get matching corners to suit the headlights (BZs bolt up slightly differently to US ones in my experience)

I did, I was worried about that. But thank you. Very Happy

I used to have those. Output was solid. Didn't have any complaints till I switched to the JDM ones.

Yeah I think for the most part everything fits okay. The only thing that I am having issues with is that I want the corners and the main unit to be flush with each other (which they are now). But the lights themselves are slightly overlapping on the road and it bugs me. But when I center the light positions by turning the adjustment knobs, it moves the whole housing and then the assembly and the corners are no longer flush.

Looks like I'm stuck with choosing either form or function.

Other than that everything works fine and looks a helluva lot better.

Yeah man, that's just how stock is, they never line up, due to how it aims. Stupid, but that's just how it is lol.
