Default Headlight Aiming

I need help aiming my headlights. i don't need to know how to adjust them. i'm looking for proper aiming directions. Ex..park car 15ft form a wall and the beam should be 3ft vertical on the wall. i don't think the the year matters, but i have a 05 with HIDs.

I looked at the service manual and didn't see specific information about distance from the wall, so I didn't want to post that up since without that the beam measurements are useless. But here is a general aiming procedure that should apply.

Daniel Stern Lighting Consultancy and Supply

Hope that helps.
