I bought my aluminum headlight adjusters from the UK and had no problem with shipping, but, after having done so, I personally see no real advantage of aluminum over delrin.

Anyway, typing /headlight adjuster in the bestlinks nets more than I care to remember to type, so I simply post the results here for the OP to read the answers ...
- Summary list of all your options when your headlight adjusters are broken (1)

If there is something truly new about headlight adjuster options, please add it to that thread.
Each repair should invariably add to our knowledge base by the process of inexorable incrementalism.
Your job, in return, is to read the suggested threads, where the best people will always add value to those threads, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person with the same problem stands on your shoulders.

See no point buying expensive aluminum adjusters for non angel eye headlights, as they are really easy replaceable on yourth and BMW has OEM adjusters for really cheap.
