Default wrx headlight beam height

I looked and my headlight on my wrx wagon say 6%. I was wondering if it was possible to manually adjust the height. In my opinion they do not shine high enough. The A4 wagon I used to have, you could adjust the height with a screwdriver.

Should be...my MY04 WRX sedan has height and lateral adjustments.

Look at back of the lamp housings, there are two "towers" extending from the backside...one is for vertical adjustment, the other is lateral. The actual adjuster bolts are covered by black plastic caps, that pry off, once you lift the little tab free.

Thanks. I will check it out.

It actually says 1.2%, not 6%. I was wrong on that.

I guess nobody else knows this, or they are happy with headlights shinning low?

I moved my headlights up on my '05 WRX the first month I had it. It helped out a lot. I also adjusted my fog/driving lights up a bit too. They were way too low stock.
BTW what does the 1.2% designate? Is this the amount of play that the adjustments can provide? Or is it something else?
