Can you adjust them yourself? I dont know if they will be anything near the same but on my AU there are orange plastic screws things (look like the top of a tap) on the back of the lights in the engine bay and depending on which way you turn them they move the lights up and down. Just a suggestion
I'd say that they might need some adjustment because im sure as hell that the BA headlights would be better than a EB or EL.

I cant fault the BA headlights, if you have problems it has got to be adjustment.
The EL in XR8 form was a dissapointment headlight wise after the excellant EB lamps. The EL was fin on high beam but the drop to low was always a big one.
The 6 lamp BA set-up makes the high to low dip much better. The AU was probably as good if not better than the BA but id did have a bad rap for dazzling on-coming drivers.
What-ever you have adjustment makes a huge improvement, and no the dealer will not normally set them at pre-delivery, they usually try to offer headlight aim as a cost option at the first service. Its not that hard to set up with measuring tape a level surface to a wall.
Well, im pretty sure at dealers they use a special thing to line them up perfect ( i know i've used one) so maybe if you take it to a ford dealer
They are sold to Ford already pre-aimed , and the only adjustment ever done is on the production line ( if any ) .I know this because I programmed the aiming station , and its checked every week for allignment.
