Projector aiming...
 
So as in WK forum I got my projectors installed and come to notice that they arent high enough - or so i feel...

Question I have is... how are they to be aimed...where does the cutoff stop.

Basically... drive to a wall and be X feet back... how high should the cutoff be on the wall from that X feet back?

just kinda eye ball it. thats what did with my 08's......I pulled up to my garage door and adjusted them up a little....drove down my street and then adjusted up/down to suit my liking. FYI-the pass lamp should be up a little more than the drivers.

Ok so this is what they look like now. Thats about 10-15ft away and at most is 2ft up from the ground. One is with fogs the other is just the headlamps. Note they weren't one for more than a few minutes.

So... they too low or just right?

its hard to say bro...looks like you need to bump them up a little...especially the drivers side. I would just adjust them up so it covers the raod area you think it should. If you get flashed by oncoming drivers...then you know you have them too high.

Yup,but you may want to go a bit lower so you don't bother other driver's.

with the projectors you wont bother other drivers unless they are aimed directly aat their eyes or in their mirrors. You dont have the scatter like the halogen headlamps
