I am wondering if anyone out there could advise how, and to what dimensions I should adjust my headllights (lowbeam) to.
Where should they be in relation to the vehicle if I shine them on a wall? I have a 1989 560 SEL. I find them a liitle short on distance, especially when I am in the country.

@ around 30 feet I adjust them so they are right about knee high.

If you haven't done so already I'd switch out the regular bulbs for a super white. Made a huge difference in my 500se.

if you have euro lights, follow the e-code lighting instructions here:

euro lights are pretty close to standard e-code, but not exactly.
