low beams

Brought the low beam LED lights up about .5" @4'. Need to take a night trip to see if I get flashed too much.
Removed arm rest and replaced with tray from Sport. You can have it for 1/2 price.

The others on this Forum as to how you did it, what was involved in the Process, was it difficult, etc.
And yes some Pics would also be helpful.

Hi Mate,

Just another question for you in regard to the Headlight Adjustments.

Could you confirm as to what Model CX-3 you have, and does it have the Factory Fitted LED Headlights, also does you car have the Headlight Leveling Potentiometer that is mounted to the Right Rear Lower Control Arm of the Car, near the Shock Absorber, then another Link to the Body of the Car, hence the Car Adjusting the Lights by Itself.

Also if a Picture of this Adjusting Screw (8mm Hex Head) that your referring to would be really helpful also for others that may be thinking of the same Modification.

Cheers

Grand Touring with factory LED-auto leveling/pivot. There is only 1 white nylon? hex head with screw driver slot on the back of the pod. Picture isn't going to help if you cannot see the adjustor.

There should be two, at least without auto pivot.
One for the vertical and other for horizontal alignment.

I just looked at mine and there are two, one above the other.
And I have both auto leveling and adaptive (turning) headlights.
I'll see if I can take a picture later (just to be sure I'm not talking nonsense) :-)
