In the U.S. the type,
adjustments, and illumination factors of all automobile lighting devices
are regulated by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108. The
headlights must function and be adjusted correctly. Your high beams must
disperse their beams straight forward and low beams down and to the
right while safely providing illumination without too much or too little
glare. It is wise to check the headlight adjustment on your Mercedes at
least every year. Doing it yourself will save you time and money. It
will also make driving safer for you and others you may meet on the road
at night. All it takes is time, some basic tools and a little patience.
