Aiming headlights?

Anyone have a guide or know how to adjust the headlights on an e46 with OEM Xeons?

I've got them installed, but don't know if they are aimed properly, or how to do so for that matter.

Here's a link to a good guide:

Follow it closely and use the instructions for VOL headlights. These are the type you have in your car. Also, you should treat your car as having a TWO headlamp system. I know there are 4 lights, but both sets are aimed at the same time by one set of controls. Good luck!
