Mine goes at least one and half car lenght, but my concern is that the passenger is little longer than the driver side. I can see the cut-off but I cannot level it. I tried re-aiming - no luck. Dealers does`nt want to explore into coz it is not factory.

That's by design and I think it's a DOT spec on headlamps. I don't believe it's easy to mod that without tampering with the lens design. The reason for this is that they want you to blind other vehicles on the road (oncomming or directly ahead of you), and since you drive on the right, seeing your right curb is essential for avoiding mishaps that may come your way at night. It's a safetyy thing.

.... pending funds.
No hyperbole here... you guys will enjoy this build hopefully... and at least appreciate how a seemingly "normal guy" can go from full functioning human being one day.... down the slippery slope the next.... :thumbsup:
BEFORE PIC :
Would SOMEONE PLEASE post one, just for old times sake...
I guess I'm getting a little to much coronavirus overload......but someone please ?
Maybe a way to retrofit a pneumatic hood strut to fit the older W163's , so we don't have to mess with that floppy setup...

Both rear power locks are machine gunning, to the point one or both are not locking at times. I'm afraid I may not be able to lock the vehicle when I'm away from home. I have been locking both rear doors manually, then use the remote to lock/arm, worked fine for quite a while, then this...
