Default adjustment to highbeams

Are there adjustment screws for the highs? I tried searching but it's too general. My plan was to convert the highs into "fogs" by adjusting them down and adding ion crystal bulbs. It may sound dumb but it doesn't hurt to try something new for a change!

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure if there are high beam adjusters on the 04/05. Your owners manual should tell you this.
As far as attempting to use the high beams as fogs, this is not a good idea. The beam patterns for fogs and headlights (low or high beam) are very different, and you can't use one as the other just by rasing/lowering the beam. If you want functional fog lights, you will need to buy and install them. There are no shortcuts.

Thanks for the response! I got this whole idea from the G35 since the fogs are integrated in the actual headlight also. Oh well.

ya except the g35 uses xenon headlamps...quite different from the $50 dollar lights on our cars.

My dad has this car...he can light up the road not only for himself, but also for the other 3 cars in front of him

Yeah, but those lamps (reflector & lens) are designed to show the right beam shape for a foglight. They don't just aim the highbeams & swap a different bulb.

It's not because they're xenons, it's the shape of the reflector & lens.

what are you driving? On the impreza/wrx/sti the reflector for the low and high beam are a single piece of plastic, so adjusting one adjusts the other.
