Light Pattern
1 Attachment(s)
Hi gents,
Couple months ago I complained about my headlights pointing down all the time. I finally went ahead and replaced the front sensor and the lights finally point straight.

One thing I did notice though is that the right headlight is pointing just a wee bit higher than my left. Is this normal or should both of them be exactly the same level?

I'll attach a picture I took with my phone. It's not as evident in the photo but on the road sometimes it feels as though the right one is too high. Maybe I just got used to the lights pointing down all the time? Shrug.

Let me know please.

I think left is supposed to be lower to reduce glare to oncoming traffic in right hand drive countries. Our 3 bmws do the same thing

Make the left a bit smaller and take a bit futher back next time. Being so close does not help.

Manually adjust them up a bit.

Will take another picture tonight from a bit further back. Apologies
