Headlights Don't Seem Right

I travelled back from wrexham last night through country roads, and my dipped beam didn't seem to light up enough of the road. And it is hard to drive everywhere with main beam on without blinding people. So i just wanted to know is there anyway of altering the height settings manually, apart from the buttons on the dash.

Re: Headlights Don't Seem Right

I think i'll be getting new bulbs as well then because the dipped beam is nothing short of weedy. I've got the dipped beams set as high as they will go but the light does seem to die out quickly.

Re: Headlights Don't Seem Right

I had the same problem, you couldn't see the road bar a few feet so bought some H4 bulbs off eBay and they now work a treat.

I'd say there about 2x brigher than the originals.
