Without having seen your actual headlight beam pattern I couldn't say
if it's misaimed, but the passenger side beam is supposed to reach
farther out than the driver's side.  If you park in front of a wall
and turn on your headlights, you should note that the HID beam cutoff has
a "stepped" pattern where it's highest on the passenger side and lowest
on the driver's side.  This is to help reduce glare toward oncoming
