2001 330Ci Headlights

Hey everyone, I'm new here. Basically I have a 2001 330ci with Xenon lowbeams, 100W highbeams, 80W foglights, and I need help.

Does anyone know how to adjust the highbeams left or right? I know they automatically adjust up/down, but the right highbeam is aimed way to far to the left.
Any help is appreciated, thanks! Maybe some links, pics?

storme is an unknown quantity at this point
as u have 100w bulbs ..did u put them in yourself???

if they arnt put in correctly this could explain why they are so far out..

i did it once on an old car...was convinced i'd put em in right...but when i re did it they went in better..the outer profile was just fouling in the socket

Yes I put them in myself. The original highbeams were pointed to the left also, I can just notice it a lot more now since they are so much brighter.

It might be different on a 2000. But check out this photo. The arrow on the right should point to the adjustment for the side-to-side:
