I have a somewhat annoying dark spot in my new 2016 Rav4 LE. Wondering if others have this dark spot, or should i take it to the the dealer to have them take a look at it. It's on the drivers side a long dark spot. I've swapped bulbs, from the passenger side and it still has this dark spot.

Have not noticed this on my 2016 LE. Will have to take a closer look this evening. I guess it could be some distortion in the headlight projector on that side.

Is it possible that the driver's side headlight is aimed a little high? I'd be curious to see what the light pattern looks like projected on a wall or garage door.

Toyota is giving me a new headlight. But I don't know how long it going to take to get here. I will take a picture against a wall later tonight, it's definitely noticeable.

I don't have a dark spot but I do notice they are aimed fairly high from the factory on my '16 XLE

Picture against my garage.
Wow, the dark spot is very easy to see in that shot! And the headlights seem to be aimed properly.

If I'm seeing that correctly the new HL didn't solve the dark spot problem.
I believe he said:
