confused about dynamic headlight im about to purchase please help!

hi guys, im about to purchase a set of dynamic headlight off ebay, the right side of the light seems to be off the place where it should be.
im told that the lens will comeback to the place where it should be once it is plugged on to the car.
some information for you guys,
i had 06 320i , without adaptive or auto leveling function, does it gonna go to the place where it should be or there is something wrong with it

here is the pic for you guys to justify.
regards.

If you donít have auto leveling i donít see how it will automatically adjust.
You could adjust it manually with the top leveling screw. However from that pic the leveling mechanism might be broken or dislocated. i'de ask them for an inside picture .

If your car did not come with these headlights they will not work. You need the wiring and modules.

i dont need the autoleveling or adptive to work, im fine with that, i just want the lens face straight where it should be. please let me know guys. thanks.
how much can the lenses bend when you guys turn your steering. this seems just way too much for adaptive purposes

Neither will work on your car, the car is NOT WIRED for them. If you don't believe it then buy them and find out.

yes, i understand that both adaptive and levelling func will not work on my car, i bought this headlight just because i need xenon appearance and angel eye looks. thats it, and im wondering will the lens came back to the normal/straight position as it should be with either manually adjust or just plug the headlight on to the car.

NO IT WILL NOT RETURN TO NORMAL POSITION WITHOUT THE MODULES AND WIRING. YOU WILL HAVE THE CROSSED EYE LOOK.

Not to thread jack... but what is the difference between BMW Dynamic D1S and DFS (around the headlight housing)?
