    Wal Mart - yes

    I had it done at the Wal Mart in Brunswick, GA and for $40 they did a nice job. That was 6 months ago and they still look good.

    Re: On front end as well?

    FWIW, I didn't like the HIDs aimed at the ground and they wouldn't adjust up any further with the screws, so I loosened the housings and pushed them up and tightened the holding bolts back down while holding them aimed high, then adjusted the headlights down with the screws to a good attitude. Then had my daughter drive my car while I drove in front and oncoming to make sure they weren't too high. Now they are just right. Except they need polishing. The next time I see a Wal Mart. Isn't that where you had yours done?

    On front end as well?

    There is one of these dinguses on the front end of my 2002 X5. Same deal? I don't have load leveling.

    I was wondering if adjusting it would adjust the headlights, which seem to aim low (HID).

    Or, the headlight adjusting mechanism is broken

    Re: headlights

    Auto-levelling system is broke. There are some links attached to the rear suspension that drive the system. One is probably broken or detached. Look at hg=33&fg=30

    Hi Guys, my headlights on my 2001 X5 are only coming up half way so I only have light up about 15 feet in front at night. When they worked correctly they would come up half way, hesitate for about a second and then open fully. Anyone know of the remedy for this? Thank you
