Default How to adjust the headlights/lower them?

i have a 2004 a8 and the headlight beam is way too high and when you turn the high beams it shoots into the sky. in other words, i need to lower the beam down...

when the start the car, the auto level thing actually raises the beam up, but right before it raises the beam thats where it should be.

is there any way to adjust it?

thanks in advance...

Yes, there are two adjustment screws that are white. You need to remove those little caps then turn the screws, however the car is no dummy and it will know you're messing with it. You need a vag com to put the headlight control module in adaption mode to essentially "tell" it you're adjusting the lamps, if you don't, it will just re-adjust to where it was before making you beg for mercy.
