Is your vehicle a sedan our coupe? What is going on with the headlights are they aimed too high or to low?

I turn both know few times. then I just reach the maximum. . is there a trick out there to make them better?

Check and see if one or both of your headlight level sensors are disconnected. Attached are some photos from under my E92. They are on the drivers side A-arms.

My headlights were aimed really low and the rear sensor was just disconnected somehow. I was worried for days.

When the car was lowered one of these may have become disconnected and never reconnected accidentally. You can just look under there with a flashlight and see. Touch the arm cause it could look connected and not be.

To change the rear springs the sensor must be removed or it will remove itself when the arm is lowered.

Once removed you would have to try very hard to put in back incorrectly because of an alignment tab on the bracket.

You sure those little servo arms in the photo are not upside down? I don't know if that is possible. Remove the arms from the chassis of the car and move the servo up and down manually and see if the headlights adjust. This will at least tell you if either servo is bad.

you can just manually adjust by spinning the knob right above the headlight unit itself. My light was pretty off after installing m3 control arms, and I just manage to manually adjust them.

wait..I thought we only have left and right leveler for the adaptive headlights. Now, you are saying we also have automatic vertical leveler?

I had this problem but reversed. Pointed way up. Turns out the projector popped out of the headlight motor inside the headlight. Took out motor, popped plastic ball end back in, good as new. Big bumps can make it pop out
