E90 Xenon headlight adjustment

E90 Xenon headlight adjustment
Hay guys, another stupid question from my side

I tend to get every second person passing me at night flashing at me, now either they all think my car is awesome and want to acknowledge it, witch may be the case(just joking) or my xenons are a little high.

Is there something simple I am missing that needs to be done or do I have to go on the hunt for a headlight module at the rear axle to correct the auto leveling?

RE: E90 Xenon headlight adjustment
There are adjustment screws on the headlight, like any normal headlight... Just don't over adjust them and pop them out their Socket...

RE: E90 Xenon headlight adjustment
I have the same issue, I would not tamper with the adjustment screws. What tend to happen is the light will still auto adjust and when the position cannot be found the lights move up and down while you drive

RE: E90 Xenon headlight adjustment
Yes this is what I am afraid off, with halogens i would just adjust on the screws but with the xenon headlights I know they have a leveling sensor on the rear axle usually.

Another thing, do you guys know if the FRM also control these as I know there are some other issues with mine.

E90 Xenon headlight adjustment
When you're parked in your garage is there a clear cutoff of the lights? I mean anything could happen maybe the bixenon shutter is stuck open or faulty? Who knows.

RE: E90 Xenon headlight adjustment
The level sensor is on your front, left control arm... Check to see if it's still in good condition

I will have look at this, if they have shutters as well then this might be the problem

RE: E90 Xenon headlight adjustment
My E90 LCI has OEM Xenons fitted.

Although the are self-leveling they were still shining too low. A friend of mines were shining too high.

I adjusted both cars’ lights at the leveling screw and they are perfect.

The self-leveling only operates within a certain range, so if your light adjustment is way off the lights will never be able to level themselves to the point where they’re spot on.

RE: E90 Xenon headlight adjustment
Ty

When I get home next week I will check everything out first to see if it is operating as should, if that is the case then I will try adjust them with the screw.

RE: E90 Xenon headlight adjustment
Mine were facing the ground pretty much. little adjustment in an underground parking from about 20m away from a wall and all is good!

RE: E90 Xenon headlight adjustment
When you start the car with the lights on, does it auto level immediately for you?

E90 Xenon headlight adjustment
Definitely you need to adjust the manual adjusters about 20 yards from a wall or something that you are able to see where they shine adjust them using the pattern on the wall so you know what it’s doing. When I got my last car that was the first thing I did to it. Mine were shining on the ground. Now they are perfect as they can be. I can see well and don’t get flashed for being too bright.
