When aiming your headlights, understand that, and I've done this before, aiming them in a fashion by trial and error usually ends up well for your low beams, if you check the highs when you have the low beams where you would want (kinda straight out) the highs won't be right, they are calibrated so that they go straight when your lows are off to the right a bit, so you don't blind drivers. I used to aim my headlights by just looking and seeing what I want, but when I ended up in the country upstate and hit the highs and noticed them off to the left, I did the calibration as per what that web page says, and now I'm much happier all around with the aiming. Of course, everyone likes things a little different...
