    hi all fitted 35w 5000k hid kit a week after mot where my headlights were correctly set, but they seem too low, is the standard set up on vectra lights too low, there was a post by duncan i think to raise heights but cant find it. Anyone help, also left beam is set higher than right, sure this is correct but would like someone to confirm

    From what I've heard they are low as standard although check the height adjuster on the dash? Left is higher than right to aid visibility of the kerb and not blind oncoming traffic.

    not true about light box i had mine set with light box aswell and still to low. followed instruction on height adjusting and 10x better and still ok for mot and in the top part of light box. turn adjuster to no 2, mark a line on wall turn adjuster back down and adjust lights up to that line job done.

    But this is for adjusting the dip beam, not main.
