    Default Headlight Alignment

    I just replaced all the bulbs for some MTEC w5w's and then H1 and H7 Nightbreakers and think I need to fix the headlight alignment.

    Is this just a case of parking with the lights aimed at an empty car park / garage door and using an allen key to adjust them till they start actually illuminating the road rather than just the top of my front bumper and 5 inches in front.

    I've read something about "-2" or something where you align them with your dashboard set to "2"? What is the reason behind this? To get extra elevation on the alignment?
