Re: eurolight pattern?
When I aim my Euro Lights down they cut off 10 feet in front of
the car too. I dont see your point. If they cut off so soon, why not
just aim them a little higher. Best way to see if they are DOT is to look
at the lens for the DOT stamp. YOu can also tell the bulb it takes by
reading these, usually.
