    if you open the hood. on top of the headlights is a white screw. this screw is turned by a rather large allen key i believe, i may be wrong. I'm pretty sure u adjust height by turning those with the lights on

    Do you know how to properly aim your headlights?

    If you don't do it this way, you're blinding oncoming drivers and not putting light where it does the most good.

    You'll need a VAG-com to set the position of the headlights in the ECU.
