    Xenon headlight adjustment - how much to pay?

    Hi

    I think my Xenons need adjusting. I'm getting the occasional flash from oncoming traffic and I think they are pointing slightly high. I last had them adjusted exactly 12 months ago (Audi did it for free at the same time as a major service ... after a bit of negotiation!).

    How much does it cost to get them re-aligned? Damn things ...

    Cheers

    does anyone else think these lights are rubbish? they dont seem to light up the road enough. all they do is look better in the dark.

    I have lense cover but i'm doubting that would make much of a difference.

    I thought they were $hit until I got new motors as they kept pointing to the floor and had them adjusted, now they are excellent. I hate going from my S3 to my Audi 80 in the dark now.

    i think the S3 lights give exellent wide vision but could do with more longitude vision in my opinion

    Isn't that an MOT failure point though? There's no way of adjusting the lights if you have a heavy load.
