Question Adjusting e36 depo projector headlight

I recently installed my depo headlights and retrofitted HIDS in the projector. I parked in front of a wall on a flat surface, turned them on and the right side is slightly higher than the left. It's driving me crazy! Lol

I noticed there are 2 adjusters at the back of the headlight. One at the corner and the other at the middle.

Which one will make the projector beam higher and which way do I turn?

Just try them out man, spin them either way. I think you use allen keys. One will move the beam left and right and one up and down if I remember correctly.

the one in the middle moves them up and down. I think turning them clockwise turns them down. Had to adjust mine a couple of weeks ago, had too many flashes..
The list starts here: Depo headlights w 8000k hid's,/CCFL's , smoked tails, corners and BBS RC041's/042's, Vogtland junior cup kit.
Lightweight flywheel ,clutch and SSK are in.....
