MOPAR is for Dodge

I want to install HID on my Edge 2016 and I see that there are two additional options to the kit: CANBus and Mopar. What is the best option? Does anybody have experience with installation of HID kit on Edge 2015+?

I do, in a reflector housing.  But I find the dispersion not be quite like a halogen bulb, so orienting it properly in the housing is important.  Since your Edge has projectors, you might have better luck.  Dingo had installed PIAA LEDs on his Edge, took off the bulb "cap", and is very pleased with the outcome.

Really leaning towards dans kit since it seems a ton of people here have used them. I have a 2016. A bit concerned with some of the comments of people saying they are getting flashed by other drivers for these lights.

Can they be adjusted or are they just shootin light up too high regardless?

you can't adjust the glare, it happens because you're putting the wrong bulb in your housing.

Before assuming the problem is light scatter and glare (which is actually quite uncommon with projector lamps converted to HID), you should check the aim of your headlights.  Manufacturers are becoming notorious for extremely bad headlight aiming from the factory.  I've seen various new vehicles from Ford, GM, Hyundai, Kia and Toyota with headlights aimed too high by a significant amount along with Dodge and Mazda models aimed much too low.  If the lights are aimed too high, they will annoy other drivers regardless of the type of light but especially so with more powerful lights such as HID.

I have a 2009 Edge with 3 wire rear brake/signal/tail light sockets.  

I am trying to replace the factory bulbs with LED's.

I am wearing out the wiring trying to installing the resistors across the proper wires. 

What is the right/proper way to connect the resistors?

I have 50W 6RJ resistors, installed in line with the flash wire on the front and back.

When I turn the key to ACC the blink is normal.  The blink goes to rapid flash when the engine is running.

HELP!
