Hmm, okay, I know the info is here somewhere but Ive been unable to find it in searches on this site and in Google.

Anyone know the recommended 25' upper-bound, low-beam height once TanabeNF10s have been installed?

Cut-offs should be about 30"-driver side and 32"-passenger side, above the ground @ 25' away. They're different to minimize blinding oncoming drivers at night, especially with HID conversions that don't remove the squirrel finders from the halogen projector cut-offs.

Nice! Thanks.


And since I just learned the term "squirrel finders" from you, here's a link with pics to anyone else that may not know (scroll down a bit):

^^ That link you posted explained it all perfectly, and also was an amusing read.

Thumbs up Thanks

I know this is hugely late, but thank you, roXor_boXor, for the picture of the adjusting screw and the relevant info. I just got a 2012 RS9 (I love it!), and this was a huge help.
