Default Anyone know how to aim the headlights on the '06?

I havent found the aiming guide for an '06 yet. I searched, but they were all for 04-05. My headlights are wayyyyy too low.

There's a little 8mm or 10mm nut screw in the back that you can turn with a socket wrench. It'll make the headlight go up or down. It's right around the rear of the bulb, and it's fairly hard to miss.

I should probably do that, unless the left light is supposed to be lower than the right...

yep, it is supposed to be like that, so you don't blind drivers coming at you.

Well, that makes sense, and I had thought about that, but the difference between the two isn't very large, and I'm pretty sure the right side isn't high enough to blind anyone. Of course, most people around here drive SUVs and minivans anyway.

There is a spot right behind each head light that lets you stick a phillips head screw driver into a set of gear teeth. If you twist the screw driver one direction it tilts the lights up and the other direction tilts the lights down. If you look on the plastic housing for the headlight they have instructions that show you which way to turn it. If you can't find it, let me know and I can take a picture to show you exactly where it is. (I don't know if the STI is different from the WRX though)

Take care,
Brian
