    Default I've seen the light!

    Adjusted my headlights last night using the Lawson Technique and it's like driving a different car!

    It's amazing the things I can see now.......road signs, other cars, pedestrians....

    Nice one, Duncan I can see this joining the airbox mod on the list of 'first things to do when you get a Vectra C'!!

    I think I'll have to give it a try, the Lawson Technique sounds very official

    Sounds good, would this make a huge difference to the facelift model?

    Not sure about the facelift model but it defintely makes a huge difference to the pre f/l. I did this along with upgrading the bulbs and because I needed to take the airbox off, I de-restricted it at the same time.

    It's like driving a different car at night - I can see

    This should definitely go on the list of 'First things to do!'

    Rob, as in my original thread, it's not the number of turns of the allen screw you need to take note of, it's where the beam sits on the wall/garage door. You simply mark the beams when they are on position zero, turn the ranger adjuster on the headlamp switch to position 2, then use the allen bolts to lift the beams back up to the marks you made. Then your position zero is your new, extended range, setting and position 2 is the one that then gets you back to the original 'correct' setting for any MOT, or whatever you have over there, tests.

    Well, it would be a cheaper mod to make than buying a set of HID's.

    Going to try this tomorrow and see how it goes.

    Cheers for the detailed description, Dunc.
