Aftermarket HID kit question


I got a HID kit from JDM and installed it on my Boxster.
Everything went smooth, I have no electrical problems and my headlights shine a nice white/bluish light...

Now here comes the problem: the light with HID installed hits very high, if I adjust my headlights down (all the way down) there are still 2 problems:
1. Low beam is still high
2. High Beam point directly to the ground

Does anyone know what could be the culprit? Maybe I installed the new bulb wrong?
What else should I check?

I just did a HID bulb/ballast install on my 03 986 and did not have to adjust the beam whatsoever.

Is the low beam on the top and the high beam at the bottom? Maybe you have them switched around?
