Smile Adjusting Headlight aim:

I have a 1992 190E - when I had a VW, there was a book "Idiot's Book" that showed how to aim headlights by shining them on a garage door and adjusting to the drawing in the book - does anyone know how to do this on the 190E?

Go ahead and replace them with euro glass units. The stock American-only candle-light powered units are nothing short of junk.
