You really need to aim them up some. I'm positive but it sure looks pretty low from what I can see. When you are parked on a perfectly flat surface, how much lower is the cutoff compared to the height of the projectors? I always shoot for about an inch or 2 drop after 50 feet.

I would check on this.

Well, with the projectors you have solid control of the beam, so as long as you keep them at the proper height the won't be focused in other drivers eyes. I have found that I can bring mine up to basically horizontal and the cutoff is still below the field of vision of other drivers (except on hill crest situations, where you are rounding over the top and your cutoff is above the heads of drivers further down the hill - but there is nothing you can do about that) Schmucks with PNPs can't do this because no matter how you aim them it just scatters everywhere - like squirrel finders.

go someplace flat - not your driveway, experiment some. park about 50 feet from a wall and use your body to gauge. On my 04, my hips are at the height of the headlights where the projectors are. When I walk to the wall 50 feet away, the cutoff is about an inch or two below where they were on my hips up close.
