In the dark.... When you have your headlights turned on... They go aim down then go back up.
Or... if you have light headlights that are projectors. Google projector headlights.

If it's a sedan, it will have angel eyes. If it doesn't have angel eyes, it's halogen.

Just because they are yellow doesn't mean they aren't xenon's.
