if its a HSE it should have xenon headlights which should self level if you have replaced one recently you may need to get a garage to adjust them to the correct height i believe Thumbs Up

Easy enough to adjust, the two small hexagon drives one each end shown in picture, can't actually remember which one is left to right and which is up and down, could try shinning them against a wall to level them up a bit initially. Does self levelling not just level the headlights in relation to the angle etc. of the vehicle, it doesn't actual adjust the headlamp alignment setting.?

nothing automatic about them AFAIK.

Think it just relies on the air suspension keeping the car level, so no electric leveling required

According to the build spec. on mine it has adaptive and automatic levelling headlights, although it is a MY13 car if that makes a difference.

Col is correct. You use the two adjusters visible in his picture. I usually park opposite a wall or, ideally, on the side of a straight, quiet lane. Use the adjusters to get the beam pattern as required.

Correctly adjusted lights make a huge difference to night driving. Thumbs Up 2012 SDV6

When you say low, do you mean just a bit low or are they pointing almost directly down. If the latter then this is more serious with adaptive headlights. Robin
