Proper Mach HID beam pattern?
 
Trying to aim my machs, problem is that the adjusters had "melted" somehow and i kind of have to jimmyrig them to adjust them. Was wondering if anyone can confirm how these things are supposed to look. Here's my current setup, car is on level garage about 12 ft from wall, top of horizontal tape line is 1" below center of HID projector, vertical line is dead cenrer. As you can see, the whole pattern favors the passenger side, and its pretty difficult to adjust that horizontally.

I couldn't find the exact link I used to adjust mine but this one sounds the same: http://forums.clubrsx.com/showthread.php?t=464202

looks pretty typical of those headlights to me. the cutoff and high beams look right. except drivers side seems dim. possibly new bulbs or ballasts are in order.
