ahhh... three screws... did not know about that. I have seen these videos earlier and knew that they should be at a straight line... thats why I had a gut feeling that something is off somewhere. The three screws should be the answer. Where are they located by default?

Thats a neat looking projector for Altis. Except for the side visors I feel the altis is really looking Hot. Do your tire upgrade with a nice set of alloys.

These should be behind the projector assembly. For the swift projectors (Old model), this was a common problem. Adjusting these screws should solve the problem and you should attain the perfect cutoff.

Here are the low and high shots of the lights on a wall 10ft away.
Its taken through my mobile so the quality is quite low. I think these need a lot of tune up...

Well I did a bit of reading and found out that these things need to be adjusted from the behind! There are screws that would move them either up-down diagonally, or up-down and left right. I have to check and see how these work for my lights.
Also they say you are not supposed to have hot spots and they are supposed to be spread evenly across and as you can see... these have ridiculous hotspots!! And the high beam is aimed quite high!
Most of these guys got them right after trial and error of removing and re-adjusting the screws like 10-20 times... some even had to remove the bumpers!!

Fingers crossed....hope its something I can fix myself.

Makes a big difference in the looks! Looks great IMHO; more Carmyish too.
Drooled at the pix atleast 5 times in the last 2 minutes!

Do post more pix. Would also love to see the DVD player in action.

Planing on taking a video soon, after tuning up the headlights. Will capture the video player then too.

BTW, keep me posted on the TVM meets

There is a way you make the car MUCH MUCH better. Paint the Chrome on the Grille and the Rear Chrome Garnish Black.

jocreative, the headlamp assembly is wow!

Regarding your concern and doubt about the headlight beam pattern - i think you have got the correct beam pattern. Though I must confess I do not know if HID is supposed to follow the same beam pattern as incandescent bulbs. If it is supposed to, then this is what the low beam pattern is designed for and should appear. Also, bear in mind, one of the headlamps would be a long throw & the other (driver side) would be short but wide. This further prevents dazzling oncoming driver even whilst on the low beam.
