Headlight level out after drop?

I'm hoping somebody else may have experienced this, but I've not seen anyone mention it before.

Last week I had some Eibach Pros fitted to my E92 M3 and ever since I've had people flashing me, or shielding their eyes coming the other way!

Now I can't for the life of me figure out WHY a modest drop in ride height would raise the light level significantly, but after seeing people do this I've noticed I'm lighting up street signs way up high, so something definitely must be out of whack.

It's just all a bit co-incidental that after a year of ownership, this is the first time I'm noticing the problem (which is now getting consistent flashes from other motorists), but could it really be linked to the drop...?!

Just doesn't make any sense to me!

there was a post about this not too long ago. There is a plug that needs to be put back a certain way and if it isnt the mechanism that monitors the headlights doesnt activate. I dont remember the particulars but I am sure someone can chime in. I believe it was a DIY post for springs.

There is a lever that needs to face the right direction. It's on the back wheels and when you drop the suspension down it flips to the wrong side on it's own. Search you'll find a thread with pics how to fix it. Takes five minutes to do yourself

Thanks chaps!

I'd never have guessed that myself!

At least I now know that I'm not going insane thinking there was a link between the two!
