What color is bird crap?

Default Headlight Alignment

Dunno if this is the right place to post this, but it's pretty close, anyway. I have bone stock headlights sitting on the front of my 02 WRX wagon. They just point at different angles. Is this something I can adjust myself with any reasonable degree of accuracy? How?

Sorry if this has been asked infinity billion times before, I'm new to the whole forum thing.

There is a screw to adjust it behind the headlights. You can access it from your engine compartment without having to remove headlights. Adjust screw w/ screwdriver one way to adjust up, another way to adjust it down. Real easy.

The unsophisticated way to align it is to have your car on flat ground, ten feet away from a wall. THe focus of the light should shine at the wall at around your knee length from the ground (assuming you arent freakishly tall or short). This is what I have read people doing anyway, please flame me if I am wrong.
