What's wrong with the driver's side? Is it because it doesn't screw in properly? That's the only thing that makes me concerned about all this.

both should be level. as the light focuses into the distance, the two steps will combine into 1 large step.

Shine your lights on a large white wall and than back the car away, it should focus into 1 large step.

the basic principle behind the step is light scatter. Image you on the road. Single lane on your side and single lane on the rght side divided by the center line. The lower side of the step should shine to the left of the center line, and the point where the step gets taller will illuminate from right of center line on up further in the road

Nice job. I think you need a little more adjusting though. Both lights are pointing up too high. I have a feeling you gonna get flashed often. Cant tell too good though, I may be wrong. Take some more pics of u directly behind cars and at different distances.

When I adjusted mine headlights I also used the cars in front of me as a reference point. I wanted them to project as far as possible but not too high to blind oncoming traffic. Best way to determine this is by looking at the cut off on the back of the car in front of you. If it goes above there rear trunk line and illuminates the drivers head and rear view mirror, you blinding oncoming traffic

Your right side needs to be lowered a little to match the left side. As Mazda6s was saying, as you get further away from the wall, they will merge into one step.

Teamwork is essential. It gives the enemy someone else to shoot at.

yeah i kinda figured that i should lower the right side a little bit...nah they&#39;re good its like right at the bottom of the trunk..and like upper part of the bumper on my neighbor&#39;s corolla....so i think thats a prety low car as low as they come stock at least...so this way when i accelerate hard, or hit a bump the cutoff will bearly hit the sideview mirros, giving those people infront of me a little taste of blueish purpleish color....



heres one pointing on other cars i think that you requested...i&#39;ll see if maybe i can take a few more shots of it tonight....

I know and i seem to have corrected it so its 1 big step and not like 2 mini steps seperated...i got a question though..i feel as though on coming traffic is okay, because they&#39;re below the step... but the people that are driving say on the highway...and your in the middle lane...i kinda feel as if anyone that is in the right lane but say about 30 or 40 feet in front of you to the right is getting nailed off their left hand side view mirror...no?

Its their stupidity for passing on the right, or you just need to quit crusing in the middle lane

On a 3 lane highway, far right is the slow lane, middle is fast lane, far left is the fastest lane.

You pass the slower traffic in the left lanes. Far right lane is the cruising lane. Do people ever follow these rules? NO! Americans cant drive worth a shit.


Your headlight arent pointing up ( I hope) so as soon as light travels from the projector is heading downward onto the road. Theres only a minor glare, but no blinding or annoying, when someone passes you on the right. The only cars that really pose the problem your talking about would be SUV&#39;s, cause they sit higher above the road. That will only happen when there really close to you also. If your coming to a stop light and your cut off isnt on the back of drivers head in front of you, your fine.
