Thanks for the compliment on the ride! With the Euro lights, as you look out the windshield your low beams have a distinct pattern ___/____/ (on your garage door or the trunk of the car in front of you at a stop light) with a sharp point where the horizontal part of each headlight beam starts to slope upward on the passenger side of the vehicle. By about 100 feet, the beams overlap and you see a low beam that is ___/. The net effect is that on a road with a concrete center barrier, the driver side of the beam pattern is parallel to and just below the top of the center divider, while the passenger side of the beam tapers up and illuminates road signs.

The high beam is like a rectangular carpet of light that starts about 75 feet in front of the car and continues out front.
