No headlight adjustment on these cars?

Is it just my car or do all of these cars not have headlight adjustment switch? My lights beam is a bit low.

Depends which lights you have on yours. The BRZ has an adjustment switch, but the standard FRS does not. (The special editions might, if they use the BRZ headlights.)

well based on your avatar info you have GT86 (depends on your region as GT86 also come with base headlights)..you should have an adjustment knob on the left side of the dash..If you have a FRS there should be an adjustment knob/screw on the headlight....can't confirm i don't have base FRS headlights.

Thanks. Definitely no headlight adjustment switch inside, so it must be on the light itself. They weren't kidding when they said this car took you back to the 80's and 90's.

There's probably going to be a 10mm or 8mm bolt on the back of the headlights that adjusts the height if I remember correctly for the FR-S halogens at least, I imagine the housing is similar. For my winjets it's an 8mm.The right way to aim it (in the U.S. at least) is to park in a place that has 25 feet of free space from a wall and then mark the exact center of the headlights parallel to the wall with tape or something on the wall. Reverse the car 25 feet away from the wall then aim the headlights to the mark on the wall and you should be good. That's what I've done with my HIDs in the "JDM" replicas and haven't blinded oncoming traffic and I can also see at night!

Thats because your father's M3 has adaptive headlights which auto adjust left to right...the up and down is on the headlight itself lol

Even the E46 M3 had adaptive headlights, it was a big deal back then, and they still had a height adjustment knob the computer only self levels from left to right and also makes sure that height stays the same relative to suspension geometry

My E39 has that hight sensor too, but you still have to adjust the headlights manually at the headlight... not by a knob inside.
