Gulelin is an unknown quantity at this point

I took my 330XI in for suspension work the other day, and the next time I drove at night I noticed my xenons leveled far too low.....they light the way like 20 feet ahead of me and thats it. I haven't called they dealer about it yet since it's Saturday, but I was wondering if this was common and if there was a way I could sort of 'reset' them. They do still move, they just don't come up to the level they should. Any ideas?

If I were you, I'd just take it into the dealer. I wouldn't tinker around with anything on my BMW like I did on my Accord.

I wasn't thinking of tinkering with the mechanics or anything, I don't think it's a *mechanical* problem if i had to make a guess. I'm guessing there is a program that controls the way the lights behave and i'm wondering if there is a way to "reboot" it with some weird process(like the setting the key fob thing=). I'm just guessing though.
