The first time I drove my 02 (bought used), I noticed the right headlight pointed down the road some 10-20 feet further than the left. I had the dealership adjust it and when I got it back, it looked the same. I assumed they forgot. I asked the to do it again and they said that is how it is supposed to be aligned.

It doesn't sound right to me but does everyone else's xenon headlights look like that?

Headlight Dispersion Pattern

I too noticed a, "Stepped down," pattern of light directly in the driver's line of vision. I think this is intentional, to avoid blinding oncoming drivers. Having said that, I just had mine realigned, and it did help. The, "stepping," is still there, but further down the road.

Lighting Pattern

For cars that are left hand drive (the driver sits on the left and the car drives on the right lane) this could be a normal throw pattern for the lights. It reduces the lights' impact on drivers in oncoming cars.
