yes, they are suppose to look like that. you can not make it look any different without opening them up and changing the cutoff

yes but you have to add washers to the inside mounting points unless you want to aim your highbeams down as well, the adjusters move both.

and even then, you'll lose all roadsign illumination on the passenger side because of the cutoff being aimed so low.

by lowering the beam you will lose your lighting distance. those lights are not the best idea for the car. they are not meant to be used here in the US. some people will argue this fact, but either a.) you lower them to avoid blinding oncoming traffic and reducing you light output or b.) you keep them up and piss off oncoming traffic. i've seen it first hand with another psm 02 wrx with those lights and i was kinda pissed too.

adjusting the xenon headlight is not as easy as you may think.

It doesn't really matter here.
JDM is RHD (Right Hand Drive) ONLY. If you wan't to fix them you'll have to take them apart. No adjustment will fix the beam pattern.
Many old threads around here that explain this.
Get rid of those things before you cause an accident. Either you can't see or the oncoming traffic can't see, Not Good!
