    I haven't looked for the adjustments on mine.
    I'll take a look tomorrow and post what I find.

    You did do a retrofit, right?
    Not just HID bulbs in the halogen reflectors?

    So does that mean you just put HID bulbs in the existing light housing, and didn't add projectors?

    If that's a true statement then you're going to have all sorts of GLARE shining in the eyes of oncoming drivers.

    HID bulbs are different than the normal halogen bulbs, and the light source is in a different location in the bulb.
    Since the headlight reflector is designed for a halogen bulb, the HID light source will be in the wrong location/distance from the reflector, which will result in glare.

    Read these two threads:

    The HID FAQ Part 1

    The HID FAQ Part 2

    And then think seriously about taking the HID bulbs out of the stock reflectors until you can afford to do a correct retrofit.



    p.s. I'll still look for the adjusters in the morning.

    Here's a side by side example of halogen (top) and HID bulbs.

    Yea I know they would glare at night time and blind other drivers, I saw this when I put them in and I thought I could just adjust them. I havent actually driven with them either. I guess I will be selling them!

    Thanks for all the info though
