    Default Headlight Alignment help needed?

    Fitted GT150'S today and some ice white sides,had to remove motor to get to the side bulbs....
    Is there anychance that i've knocked the aligment out?
    Only tonight i've found the panoramic light of the 150's amazing,but seems a little high of the ground,certainly not giving a really noticeable foot print right in front of the car like standards,but instead going for greater distance.
    For instance the overhead signs on the A19 today were lit up amazingly,where as the footprint right in front of the motor seemed more subtle.

    Is this just the character of the lights?
    Any owneres of GT150's out there i need your help!!!

    Ok well if thats the only solution....
    Thought there may have been something i could have looked for at home.
    Just would have been nice to hear the opinions of other peeps with aftermarket bulbs.

    make sure ure motor thing is sitting in the clip properly, i removed my motor the other day and found th elight pointing upwards. i had a look behind one of the black cover/caps and saw the motor stalk thingy wasnt in its clip properly and thus was pushin the light upwards. its abit fiddly puttin back in, but managed to do it by sliding it in from the top, i couldnt push it in to the clip.

    Nice RSV - what do you think of the light output of the above GT150s to the Piaa ones you had in (and Ive now got in)? - think ill either go for those PIaa sidelights or try the LED approach which prob wont work anyway!
