    I have fx-r projectors and have been a bit of trouble aiming them. I feel that they are too high because when I drive next to sedans or any lower cars the light floods into their windows. To get a better idea, I am driving on the stock suspension and when I roll up behind a sedan the cutoff is right on the top of the trunk before the window.


    My left projector seems to adjust just fine, it's my right projector that doesn't seem to budge any lower than what its at. (its a bitch to adjust)

    Any advice? For the guys who have retrofits, does your light go into the car's next you at times or are they lower?


    Suppose to meet up with Ant in a week to check it out but just wanted to see if anyone could shed some light on this topic in the meantime.

    Thanks. My beam as shown in the cut off picture above on the passengers side is about 3 feet and 3/4 high. Kind of seems a little high though when driving.
