I'll have to check out some extra lighting. The ones on my Majesty would light up the road like daybreak. I'm really disapointed in the ones on the Beemer. (That's about the only thing.)
Glad it was the quick fix! Like Zippy said, this knob is the "fine" adjustment - if you had to turn it all the way to the opposite end of travel just to get it to peek up into the 'normal' range, at some point you may want to pull the nose cone and make the macro adjustments using the adjusting screw(s).
Everyone's right - you will be just as impressed (if not more) with a new HID low beam as you are disappointed with the stock halogen low beam. SilverBuffalo recommended the 5000K H7 from cqlight.ca - you can also go to hid-online.com and get a 4100K H7. When you do your forum and HoW search for HID, you'll find ('specially from David Shealey) that the lower the HID color temperature, the better, where 5000K is about as high (higher=bluer) as you wanna go, and lower (4100K for example) provides whiter, more effective light.
The job involves a nose cone pull, a small amount of drilling & filing plastic, a probable glue-up of a small block to create a level shelf on top of the headlight housing, and some basic electrical wiring with relays. By no means rocket science, and a good Saturday project if you're by yourself, you've never pulled the Tupperware before, and you want to work at a methodical pace. Better yet - look for a tech session in your area, and you're bound to find one where others are doing it and others have done it before.
