If you have "normal" halogens you should have the adjustment wheel next to the cabin lights adjustment.

If you have xenons that will be missing and you will also have the popout headlight washers

If you HAVE an adjustment wheel by the light switch then you have standard lamps.

Xenons are self levelling via sensors on the suspension. Xenon's are only on dipped beam. High beams are filament bulbs.
Can easily tell xenon discharge bulbs as they 'flicker' when the arc strikes. Unlike filament standard bulbs which are instant on.

Got it?

I have an adjustment wheel by the light switch (which doesn't work), but I'm 100% sure I also have xenon's. It's a 225 '99. And I don't think my self levelling works either.

There is an adjustment wheel for dash brightness :)
