there's a screw on the top of each headlight housing...its a philips head...just turn it one way to lift the light and the other to drop it....

Ya I need to do the same thing. Cars keep flashing their high beams. Although it seems like the light is just more scattered, not necessarily aimed too high

i have hid's in the stock light fixtures and they are bright and they flood out like crazy. any amount of ajusting will not really help that. not sure if any company makes a headlight that works well with hid's and does not look like crap

Ya I just went out and adjusted mine a little lower because people flash me, but it still looks quite scattered. Can anyone with experience please tell me if these look normal or if they are going to cause a problem. Also, if these are not normal, is there anything I can do to fix them? One more note, the scattered part in the middle on top is only from the passenger side light.

With the fogs:

It would be nice to see what a good adjusted height would be with HIDs. I just installed HIDs an hour or two ago on my friends Mazdaspeed 3, but because of how the headlight was designed it wasn't necessary to adjust the light after the install, but from what I've heard HIDs + Mustang Housing = Scattered. Do you have a pic of your adjustment 6ER?

Edit: I have HIDs coming in the mail which is why I'm interested
