OP has the wrong lights. At the moment with the wrong lights fitted, the oncoming traffic would be dazzled by high lights, even if aimed correctly, the cutoffs would be wrong.
Why would these lights then be coded 'E4" (Netherlands), which is for use in right hand traffic (LHD) cars? Is it possible for me to purchase Hella lights with the proper lenses (for LHD cars) here in the States? OR maybe its time to consider a good LED replacement set?

Is it because the chassis on these cars is assembled in South Africa, which I believe is LHT (RHD vehicles) as to the reason why these lenses are cut incorrectly for use here in the States?
