Has anyone adjusted the headlights on a 19 Forester? I have the Sport model with LED lights without steering response.

The low beams seem a bit to low and they cut off way to short. I never noticed this in the city, but on a dark country road i was surprised i couldn't see far enough with low beams. The high beams are great, there was just enough spaced out oncoming traffic that the high beam assist wasn't totally helpful.

What you are describing sounds like the normal beam pattern of HID projector headlights. There are headlight adjustment instructions many places online and for Subaru, which I highly recommend anyone use if they are going to adjust their headlights or just check the adjustment. As even a small adjustment can be blinding to oncoming traffic. I checked the aim of my 2018 Outback Limited (Same headlights but with steering response). And found they were adjusted correctly from the factory, and I still get flashed from time to time by oncoming traffic thinking my high beams are on. Or that my headlights are too bright.

I'm familiar with the cut-offs on a lot of HID headlights, these just seem a bit excessive. I'm wondering if the way they are adjusted is what gave the 2019 Forester a lower headlight rating than all the other 2019 Subarus.
