Issue with adaptive headlights aiming too high

Approx 6 weeks ago I had a set of H&R Sport springs installed on my 328i. Ever since then I have had issues with the height of my headlights. I do have Adaptive Xenon lights so whatever issue should be corrected automatically .... Wrong. Now, when the lights are switched in both beams will raise to an acceptable/normal level them continue on up. My low beams aim about 4ft lower than my high beams do, from the top. Needless to say, I am pissing a lot of people off. I know there have been issues after spring installs due to the arms not being reinstalled correctly but my lights actually function and turn, just not correctly. Can anyone chime in? I left the dealer earlier who was no help and said there is no way to adjust it. I argued with them since there are multiple suspension options from the factory that retain various heights. Regardless, if I get this corrected it won't he with their help.

I have searched the forums and google. Please help!!

There should be a way to adjust the beam height on the headlight housing. On every new vehicle I have seen with adaptive lighting this was true.
