New 156 Black Headlights..Poor light

Hi Guys,
My headlights needed replaced soi bought a set of Black ones off fleabay, looked good quality, fitted them as i had the bumper off for painting....made big mistake, did not try them for alignment till after i put the bumper and inner arches back on...
Now, they are level but in the highest setting they are too low...what is the best way tolift the light beam....

Check the bulbs have been fitted the correct way up.

The tab is meant to point upwards but the bulb will fit the wrong way if it is forced slightly..

The Standard 156 bulbs are poor anyway, somthing like philips vision plus will give a good improvement.

Non branded ebay bulbs should be avoided. I tried them and they are rubbish.
