I too have noticed the short distance the headlights shine on low beam. It is very noticeable and much worse than previous Lexus I have owned. Also, the headlights should turn in either direction but the manual is wrong on the button setting. It is in reverse of what lights show on the dash. Check it out.

I don't understand. What button setting are you talking about and what lights showing on the dash? BTW, mine do turn...

Just installed aftermarket 4300K bi-xenons in my '95 LS400.
Pretty nice even on low beam, a tremendous improvement in night vision, especially so on high beam.
The LS is of canadian purchase origin so while it uses the traditional hi/lo filament halogen bulb it also has an extra high beam bulb each side that is also used as DRL at low voltage, in series, 6 volts each.
I doubt if it is really needed for HB, probably only there since the canadians require DRLs.
The aftermarket HID bulbs/lamps use a solenoid to move the arc back and forth to/from low beam and high beam position.
Bulb assemblies also came with their own metal shading for sharp upper pattern low beam cutoff.

The passenger side headlight on this LS 430 turns off while the car is being driven. Other times the headlight does not turn on at all. Has anybody had this problem? I think it is an electrical short, but am not sure. And recommendations are welcomed.
