Purpose - This mod will adjust your European Headlights Beam Height on the Vertical Position.

Pros - All 6 lights adjust up or down according to driver preference, used
in Europe extensively when increased weight is carried in the trunk of the
vehicle. In this case driver has the ability to adjust his beams accordingly,
in order not to blind the coming vehicles. My purpose of using it, is
because I drive a lot at night, when traffic is limited to none, I can
adjust my lights a little bit higher than normal, so I can have a more
pleasant and less tiring trip (more light on the road).

Cons - I cannot think of something, except abuse and either way, you (the
driver) can lower your beams in case you forgot them in an upper position,
since the coming drivers are going to notify you immediately (by flashing
the high beams).

Adjustment Capability - The beams can move about 8 inches in height, when vehicle is facing a wall at the distance of 6 feet. Significant adjustment
if one takes into consideration that on 100 feet distance the difference
can light up the trees if needed.

For power, we can use power from the lighter, clock or any switched +12v. The circuit doesn't have current while resting on a certain position, only when you change levels. The ideal is to get power from the headlight switch relay, so your switch works only when your headlights are on.
