    Hi
    I have done a search but I came up empty handed, either I can't use the search or no one has asked this stupid question.........

    How do you adjust the headlights horizontally? I know how to do it vertically via the screw on top, but have looked and can't find any way to adjust left to right.

    If they can't be adjusted, anyone in a non LHD country, how did you adjust yours for driving on the oppersite side of the road so the headlights are pointing in the correct direction?

    Cheers
    Toy

    there is no side to side adjustment provision. only up & down.
    perhaps you can shim the lamp assembly to compensate. not sure how effective that will be, though.

    Thanks for that, I was thinking the same thing that I could pack out one side to make it point the other way. I am beginning to think this is the only option I will have as I haven't found any aftermarket adjustable lights on the market yet either. So shimming must be OK as there are quite a few Challangers here in New Zealand already.

    I don't live in the US and imported the car into New Zealand where I live.

    I was asking if New Zealand imported Non HC Challengers there? Through dealers, not individuals they may be able to help you.

    Nope, the only Hellcats or in fact any Chargers or Challengers in the country have been imported.

    You may have to contact a company like Diode Dynamics to see if they can make something for you.
