Maybe I'll have them re-aimed next time im in. I'd hate to pay for something like this!
My experience has been that re-aiming yourself is fairly difficult. I recommend letting the dealer do it. The TIS describes precisely where the spray should land. The E39 version was clearly some engineer's pet project
