    Discs and pads are a cheap fix and headlamps is a simple enough tweek.

    there was a guide kicking around somewhere to calculate it.

    The lights have a % on them (1.0 i think in the uk), you need to adjust them by driving right up to a wall, marking the centre of the projector on the wall, then reversing back say 10M, then adjust them such that the beam centre occurs at the distance you calculated below the centrepoint.
