Adjusting headlight reflectors

Hello, I recently got some 6K HIDs installed in my 2014 Versa Sedan. I was wondering if anybody knew how to lower the angle of reflection because when I am behind somebody I can see everything in their car, it is too high. I already got a warning from a cop "do something about that"

Or should I just take it back to the shop and ask them to do it.
If so, is there a more professional way to word this, lol!

Generally all headlight assemblies have some sort of vertical adjustment on them to move the beam up and down............Look for it.

Cool

Oh I love people like that. I had one of those mustangs with the fog lamps made into the grill and the guy had hids in all 4 lamps and I sweat he had 55 watt ballasts too.

Well, make sure they are rated for HIDs and your HIDs are rated for on road use or DOT approved. Same for the projectors. Many projectors are for halogen lamps or are not DOT approved.

It's easy enough to get the lamp angles changed, but not on your own unless you open the car up though. I'm probably one of those people who can get unnecessarily over-irritated when the guy behind me is intentionally or unintentionally flashing up my car!

I like the lamps on my versa. The aim, spread and color. Out of habit I got a set of fogs, but Ive got use to not using them on my old car.

HIDs have completely different light properties and will blind everyone unless they are literally pointed straight down.

get rid of them or get projectors made for HID's.
