    I think being a different wheel size messes with the levelling of the lights?

    I think you can adjust your lighting manually using a screwdriver by turning the white screw type things in the top of the headlight.

    I've never read that people have had to adjust lighting because they fit alloys, only when lowering suspension IIRC.

    DId you fit the wheels then? Any pics?

    you can put the lights into MOT mode in VCDS so it can re-align themselves. you need to go into module 55 to do this.

    Any further instruction needed to do this? i.e. is there a basic setting type process I need to go through like one would do to realign throttle bodies?
