Yes pattern and they could not be adjusted to improve it....just shocked the replacements are clearly so poor. Last time I invest in 'new' parts....always thought it was sensible if affordable to go new. It seems pointless to try another new set given the likely results.
Not that I am keen to adjust the new ones, but could the originals be adjusted? Garage where it was tested is a classic car restorer so I was shocked they had little experience of Alfa's or suggestions to adjust.
all headlights can be adjusted for aim, it's one of the few jobs we're allowed to do whilst
actually carrying out a test.
but if you say the pattern is wrong, like the image is smudged or indestinct then it's more likely to be a bulb fitted wrongly or a reflector problem.
given that you've changed to new lamps and still have the same issue then the reflector thing can be discounted which leads me to ask. have you changed the bulbs?
i've known bulbs cause havoc with poor image projection, from a duff bulb itself but more often that not they are not located exactly correctly. a bulb fitted upside-down gives a hideous pattern.
i know they are in an awkward place but please ensure they are fitted the right way up. it IS possible to fit them wrong, not easy, but possible.
the lamps you took out. can you connect them to a battery in your shed/garage and play with things projecting against a wall? you need to see a flat line with a kick to the left, like a tick on its' side if you see what i mean.
