Projector's projections..

So I know the projector's beams are supposed to be aimed like this, when pointed at a wall:

......________ (forum removed my spaces, so the dots are spaces)

but my question is, which part of this beam pattern should each headlight's center be at? the angled part? so directly in front of the left beam would be the first angle, and directly in front of the second beam should be the second angle? someone help me out here, I am having a b**ch of a time aiming these, partly cause everytime I do it, I think I am on a level surface, but it's slightly angled, so now my beams are too far down, but the pattern is indeed correct.. just need to raise them a little and move the horizontal so they aim perfectly...

not too sure what you are trying to say here...but just make sure the cutoff is level with each other (L and R) and be sure they are not pointed too high that it impedes oncoming traffic.
