One side is designed to be slightly higher than the other. The light that is closest to ongoing traffic will be aimed slightly downward so as not to blind other drivers. All cars with projector headlights are like this.

Agreed with above. LHD vehicles have the higher beam aimed a bit higher then the left which is by design. RHD models are the reverse.

You're all wrong, both sides should be aimed at same level.

Perhaps we (I) should have been more specific. The US follows SAE guidelines, not ECE. SAE headlights do not have the sharp, asymmetrical cutoff of ECE and throw more light in the headlamp that his furthest from oncoming traffic.
