Beam pattern messed up help!

a friend of mine istalled my angels for me but in the end result one hid xenon would not turn back on so we switched that little red piece that holds the HID bulb from one side to another and it still did not work so i plugged my fog light connector to my headlight and it worked. But now when i drive at night it seems that the beam of the xenon is pointed to far downward and does not stretch far enough for me to even see!!! is that a setting that BMW can fix because i cant ssee literally past 25 feet. I kno how they used to look so please dont tell me its in my head lol

I think it may be one of three things
1. the switch of tht red piece
2. the install of the angel eyes
3. the fog light connector plugges where its not supposed to be plugged to power the xenon


please respond i dont liek driving at night because i can hardly see past 30 feet!!! its terrible please leave me some feedback

If you are driving with the foglights used to ower the xenons you likely aren't getting power to the autolevelling system so the lights are just aimed haphazardly.

I hope you can get the problem resolved.
