Ever since i bought my car i wanted to get the facelift hid headlights and about two weeks ago i finally got some. then i eventually got the time to install them, and after i took out my poopy two piece ones, i realized i had to order the facelift harness'. soooo those came after a another week and i threw them in on wednesday night. the only thing is they dont line up to the edge, where the corner light used to be. i was wondering if there was anything i could do

you probably need to trim your fender

Yea, trimming the tabs on the fender is needed for the prefacelift cars. Search, there is a DIY on how to swap over the newer headlights.

As others have stated, trim off the the little lip on the fender, then seal it with paint (for fufure rust purposes with rust proof paint). Place painters tape on the outside of the fender itself, as you don't want to spray that with spray paint and go to work. You only want to paint the exposed/cut portion.
