Yesterday i installed new $99 headlights off ebay onto my EFII Futura and wacked in XENON BLUE H1 Bulbs.

Coming home from work today was the first time i seen them driving at night time and for the first 5 meters infront of my car looked like daylight (looked like i had white neons)

Then i headed down a dark dark street and relised i couldnt see s**t infront further than 5 meters!

So for my question: Am i soposed to adjust the lights or is it just the way the bulbs are (as my housemate told me)

Ive seen the windy thing on the back of the headlights and guess that would adjust the height, but im asking here first b4 i fux something!

Every car has a different ride, yes your spozed to adjust them.

Yes they should be better that yellowed stock 12yo lights.

However you get what you pay for, these aftermarkets do not have the best reflectors in them.

Are they ADR approved ones?

even so.. the adr approved ones aren't that good either.

the light output is brilliant, so aiming them upwards should do the trick.
