BMW Z4 E85 Headlight Adjustment

0

I installed an MTEC aftermarket HID kit a few years ago, but noticed that the visibility just wasn’t what I should be getting with this technology – after spending some time adjusting the housings, my driving visibility significantly improved. The hard part was finding how to adjust them (see the second picture below).

The initial measurement... using freezers. :-D

All you’ll need is a phillips screwdriver to turn the plastic screw (mine was greenish in appearance). There’s an analogous screw behind the passenger-side housing too. The following article provides a great walkthrough of how to properly align the beams once the adjustment screws have been located: link to article

Happy driving! 🙂
