    Angel Eyes? they have an allen key adjustment for up/down correction.
    Not seen an adjustment yet for left/right.

    Tip is before you take them out. Line up against a solid object at a set distance. Turn on lights. Mark on object where lights shine.. Fit new lights and correct to the right height needed.

    if you have a garage or a wall park you car about 3 feet away from it and put your head lights and you will see a straight line with a kick up to left do a mark of them. when you have your new lights in then adjust them with a allen key the the lines you have marked out hope this helps m8

    My local dealer charges £23 all in to adjust the headlights. Just had my xenons done today
    Lois Griffin: Peter! You're bribing your daughter with a car?
    Peter Griffin: Ah, c'mon, Lois, isn't 'bribe' just another word for 'love'?
