Just out of curiosity, I notice that my DRL bulbs sit at an upward angle in the light unit, what about everyone else’s??

stop being paranoid, take car to the garage to get sorted. Quite sure no one is going to lose any sleep over a headlight.

The driver side headlight had gone cloudy above the DRL, upon removal of the bulb the area the bulb fits into had been melted away so it was more of an oblong than a circle.
