Need help with my left headlight

I have a 2009 e90 328xi and my left headlight seems to be angled up and need some advice on to fix it. Took it to BMW dealership and they said it would be a $140 diagnostics fee and don't really want to pay that since i can already tell whats wrong with it. Could use some advice if anyone knows how to fix it. Thanks included are pictures of the right and left headlights to show the difference and what is wrong.

Are your headlights halogen or xenon?
Nevermind the pics didn't load first time around. Ok you have halogens. Best thing to do would be to take out the headlight. Open the back cover and manually adjust it. I had the high beam part move on me when I was changing a bulb. I was able to adjust it with my fingers once I had the headlight out. Although I have xenon headlights but the concept is the same.
