Cool - will try that too. Thx.

I have a 2007 IS250 and just changed the headlights to 6000K. Went for a drive last night on some dark roads and it seemed like i could see really well for only 2-3 car lengths. Checked out the boards and found this thread and it helped a lot. I just wanted to add my experience.

I started by jacking up the driver side back wheel.
The best way to look at the AFS Level sensor is from the middle of the car looking back. The best way (for me) to adjust the AFS level sensor is from the back. Pic IMG_1702-adj.jpg is after i adjusted it and its still up on the jack. Pic IMG_1705adj.jpg is after the adjustment and the car is back down. Pic AFS-Adjustment-01.jpg shows how much i adjusted the the AFS level sensor. I only loosened the 10mm bolt located at the red circle on pic AFS-Adjustment-01.jpg

If this dosent help, im going to adjust the bolt so that it is all the way to the bottom of the slot. ill post more after checking my lights tonight.

After adjusting the AFS Level sensor all the way down, there was some improvement but i still dont think its high enough. Seems to have improved a car length, im going to adjust the headlight directly a little bit.

The sensor is behind the rear driver side wheel. You will need a 10mm socket.
