How to adjust DEPO headlights

hey i got euro ellipsoid depo headlights but i don't know how to adjust the low beams. Both low beams are not leveled to eachother and it is annoying driving like that at night. If someone could tell me how to adjust them so there leveled to eachother, that'd be great.

Thanks,
Ian

What works best for is to park on a level surface facing a wall. There are adjusting screws on one side and either the top or the bottom that aim the lights. Obviously, tightening a screw pulls that side (top etc) in more; so loosening takes it out more. These adjustments may be under the hood of an E36 since there is an outer lens.

I have not had a close look on the E36. They are likely under the hood, behind the headlights.

I agree with witeshark........park on a level surface, make sure air pressure in tires is correct....pull up to wall or garage door and adjust the adjustment screws circled in pic below:
