Xenon headlights - adjustment?

The manual tells me that Xenon headlights are adjusted automatically for weight, braking etc. However, I am experiencing a minor issue. Yes the lights are good and bright, dipped in particular is very good. Full beam presents a minor issue, the road immediately in front of the car and along a good bit of the road is fine, the tree branches high up are well lit too, but right where the light should illuminate the end of the road there is a dark band. So to try and explain further, I have two bands of bright light and a poorly lit band in the middle. I have never experienced this before and I take it nothing can be done?

It's just down to distance - objects at the top and bottom are close to you so get illuminated, objects in the distance (ie, down the road) are too far to be lit up properly so are dark. Not much you can do about it, it's physics!
