2003 E320 Headlight Adjustment

The headlights on my new E320 are set too low. The low beams just don't illuminate far enough down the road to drive safely at night. I took the car to a dealer for adjustment, but they told me beforehand that if the lights were within spec, they wouldn't raise them--afraid of other drivers being blinded by glare if I load up the trunk. Bottom line, I don't know if the dealer tech raised them at all--anyway they are still too low.

The adjustment screws are not evident. I know how to set the headlights, if someone can clarify for me where the adjustors are located.

The car has standard headlights, not the Xenon.
