The Hella are manualy aimed so that the Left (drivers) is pointing slightly to the right (for oncoming traffic) and the Right (passenger) straight on.
Mine were Driver's, pointing down-left, and Passenger's, pointing up right when I purchased my car used.
I've since swapped out to some Lucas Tri-bar replicas.
Yes, mine are Hellas and they are installed correctly. I never noticed that little bulb at the bottom of the light. You say it's a parking lamp? Is it on when the low beams are on?
