Holeshot: Made the final adjustment and hit the road this morning about two hours before sunrise. No flashers in the city or out on the highway. When the car bounces slightly up or down I know the lights are reaching the other oncoming cars. I would assume the bulbs are just not that bright. Due to the glare of the approaching city cars some of the lighting is lost--might be my age too! The results of really tweaking the low beams up was excellent. I am confident now of the low beams on the highway at some high speeds. The spread of the lights to both sides of the highway is a feature I sure can get used to during my travels. I haven't seen any animals, cattle,deer or Kangaroos but do see road debris which can be just as dangerous. It works!

I am interested in just how much of an adjustment you did make. Would like to do the same.

Low Beam GTO

I used a level spot at night in a dark market parking lot and directed the low beams on a wall surface about 30 feet from the lights. It looked like I raised them about 6". I just kept drving out and back and made adjustments. The car now has 2087 miles on it and only one driver has flashed his lights. I think it was because I changed lanes and in doing so the beams caught just right. He/she was about three city blocks away. I don't think the adjustment is maxed out yet. Sorry for the delay but have been driving the heck out of the car.

I'm waiting for it to warm up before I adjust mine, its about 5 degrees out there and it only gets colder at night.

If I go about 65 miles north its not so flat. Baraboo area is very hilly and pretty (nice curvey roads too).

The GTO was made for curves and with a GPS set at 120/200 ' I can see if it is a hard "U" or turn I can enter and punch it out. I'm no racer but this is fun.
