    Headlights donít throw far enough?

    Hi all ó-2018 Audi RS3-I just put H&R springs on it. I noticed the other night on a drive that my headlights donít seem to be throwing far enough-any idea if this is normal or even to do with the springs?

    Car appears to be just as level as it always was. Headlights only throw about two highway broken lines out if that makes sense-felt really unsafe to be honest.

    There are some white adjusters behind the headlights you need to turn to get the headlights level again. Make sure youíre on a flat surface. Iíve had to make this adjustment on every Audi Iíve lowered. Apparently there are light levellers on the front and back suspension.

    Works like a charm. I used a sharpie to mark a line on each of those screws to help me see how much I adjusted them. I went one full turn each side. Donít remember which way I turned them though. Did it against my closed garage door. Screw is centered in pics.

    You don't have to use a vagcom to put the headlights into adjustment mode? I remember with my RS4 I had to do that but that could be from teh adaptive headlights feature.

    Counter-clockwise to raise, which is counter-intuitive ;)

    Car is not lowered, but my 2015's LED lights were a bit low/short from factory.

    I did the exact same thing. Sharpie mark on the white knob and then turned them 1 and 1/4 turns while the lights illuminated against the garage wall. Raised them up and no one has ever flashed their lights at me. Made a nice difference when driving at night.
