nivomat self adjusting shocks.......there's no adjustment. I think there's left/right, but that's it.

I've always heard there's no adjustment, maybe you could try shimming the top of the headlight mount with a couple washers, but that will throw off your seams.

Nevermind, I had it backwards, no horizontal adjustment....attached is the instructions. The nivomats are there in place of self adjusting lens' like the bimmers.

There is both a vertical and horizontal adjustment for the headlights. They are adjusted with an allen head screw just inboard of the headlight assembly under the hood.
Ferny, you can get it close by yourself, but if I were you I would drop it off at the dealership and politely ask them to finish the job. If a suspension component was replaced under warranty I would expect them to check the alignment after wards, I don't see how headlights are any different.

Eh, it says right on the repair sheet in red 'no horizontal adjustment'
