Love the brilliance of my MPS headlights...the wobble of the beam over bumps is disturbing or is this my problem only?

Nope. I have the same issue with jiggly headlights. I'm kinda wondering how that looks to oncoming traffic? I've seen other cars with loose foglights and it's irritating to see.

I for one am not really happy with the brightness. I think the lights are a little too dim and the beam has a definate cutoff that's too low. Even with the beam adjusted all the way up, IMHO, it needs to go up further to cast out more down the road. I wonder if there is a manual adjustment under the hood?

I remember reading a thread on the mazda3 forum about raising the level of the lights by movin the gears that controls the light up a couple notches. I cant find it now though.

Drives me nuts that people get ticked at this...


Get an allen wrench find the appropriate manual leveller on the back of the housing.. rotate it in the proper direction to raise the projector and you are done..

No more than 2 min of work and you get the result you want. I set it up on mine so that interior level wheel is set to 1 to be perfect height. so that I can raise and lower the light is need be and not be stuck on 0.

:D

Cool! Thanks for the tip. I figured there should be something to adjust these. Now I can set them up high enough to be able to see at night.

Sweet, thanks...I hate seeing the cut off line only 20 feet out.

As for other drivers, nothing like hitting them back with highs and lows...I seem to get it once an evening now-a-days. It's better when I'm in the Jeep and can hit them with what you see in the avitar. ;)
