2020 Toyota 86 OEM Headlights question

I'm quite new to the ft86 community, purchased a 2020 Toyota 86 base a couple months back and I'm really enjoying it! I couldn't find a post related to the headlights and the few I found seemed like a different build so I figured I start a new post.

I have noticed the headlight beams seem to be "bouncy" as in I can visibly see the light beam moving up and down off of cars in front of me and in the dark surrounding areas/ distance street signs. I'm thinking I may not be use to the led cut-off being so clean cut as my last car was a Scion tc, though I have noticed the beam cut off in other cars so it could just be that led lights are getting brighter. I do live in the high desert of Socal so the roads tend to be a little more rough so that could be another factor. I have also noticed on darker roads people are flashing their brights at me when I have normal lights on.

My main question would be is this normal for the oem headlights and is there a way to access the light bulb is to check if its loose, I couldn't find an opening anywhere seems sealed shut compared to previous model years. The car has the auto headlight adjust setting from what I can tell with a few manual adjustments so I may try that. Appreciate any suggestions or comments.

It will bounce up and down depending on how stiff your suspension is because the cut off is very precise like you said. It's a LED headlight so there isn't going to be anything loose.

You can manually adjust them down with a 8mm if you want.
