    there are two screws on each lamp. One on left of the lamp adjusts the light falling slight left or right, the one dipped and main beam are both adjusted together with the screw under the rubber stop just above the lamp

    how is that possible though! if i change the allignment on the main beam screw it will totally mess up the allignment of the main beams in order to get the highs in line!

    main beam and full beam adjusts together- maybe you have undone the screw completely? open up the unit and see whats going on inside when you make any adjustments( on one of mine the screw was not in its place properly , the only way to overcome that was to dismantle the light unit from the car and repair it)

    high/full beams dont necessarily need alignment on their own, thats why im guessing fk decided to keep them together, the general direction of the dipped should be good enough, they just need to point at the road, idea being they brighten up any dark areas and bends when driving in pitch black. I will hold my hands up and say......fk full/high beams are terrible without a hid kit or high wattage bulb. When i changed my full/high beams to hids like my dipped then it was fantastic!! could see everything!!

    off topic, any pics of the before and after shots with grommits in place of the light on the road?

    Looking at the picture I would say the right one is ok as main beam shine up the road more.

    Cant remember how the main beam bit is held in but you may be able to bend it up slightly or fit washers if its bolted in.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
