Default Winter Warrior Rivals Arctic Snow Cat / Fog Lights Question

I had the pleasure last night of navigating the Pennsylvania Turnpike at night for 5 hours. The last two hours were in a snow storm, compounded with some blustery wind and a slew of scared drivers.
Shod with my winter treads, I was able to navigate as if the pavement was dry and the sun shining. I was not a speed a**hole weaving in and out, but I almost effortlessly passed plows and/or traffic when they had one clear lane and mine was snow-covered. The grip this car generated was surreal. And welcome!

Question: The left side fog light seems to do a great job of illuminating the guard rail or cement dividers, but not necessarily the pavement next to the wheel. I also noticed the same cornering lamp appears to illuminate the yard and porch of the house on the corner, while the road stays dark through the turn. Are these lamps adjustable? (there, I finally asked the question).

Do you mean the all weather lights?

Yes.. they seem to be one and the same with the cornering lamps. The left side seems just too high to be really effective.

Have you checked the basic headlight aiming? Find a dark blank wall in the distance and a towel or blanket to block one headlight at a time. Since it is one monolithic module with LEDs inside, I expect only the overall position can be changed.

See for checking/adjusting: https://www.audiworld.com/forums/a8-...ights-2900072/
