This is a common issue we've seen over on infinitifx.org. When the headlights are replaced with the new ones per the recall, the dealers are aiming the headlights lower. Thus you only see about 30-40 feet out in front of your FX. Many of the owners have simply popped the hood and adjusted the headlamps out to an acceptable distance. In fact, some have even set the adjustment knob on the console to 1 or 2 and then adjusted the headlamps to a "normal" height, that way when no one is around they can bump the setting up to zero and get excellent illumination without turning on the high beams.
MacyMac1 stated that he/she adjusted the headlamps to no affect, but this is because the adjustment knob on the console is set at zero for normal driving. If you're headlamps are aimed too low on the zero setting, you can't go any higher. Settings 1, 2 and 3 are used when you are towing a trailer or have a heavy payload, and need the headlamps to be aimed lower than the zero (base) setting. Therefore, the only way to fix this is to pop the hood and adjust the actual headlamp.
To adjust the headlamps yourself, obviously park your FX on level ground facing a wall about 30 feet away. The adjustment screw for each side is on the top of the headlamp, indicated by the red arrow in the picture below. Use a phillips screw driver. I'm not sure which direction goes which way, but you can figure it out fairly easily. Adjust the lights evenly to a level you prefer, just don't go too high and blind oncoming drivers.

BTW, the kelvin temperature of the D2S bulbs has nothing to do with the problem, and changing them will do absolutely nothing to fix the issue of the projectors being aimed too low.
