My car is 100% stock and at the time I did not even have plates, and I still got flashed for my stock halogens! But i agree with the OP, esp you F-250's with 9 in lifts, you guys are extra annoying at night.

From my point of view - you are blinding me and making it impossible for me to see properly. I'm not kidding. This happens EVERY night on my commute home. It's aggravating and frustrating. If you need to see clearly on back roads at night, use your high beams.

True but you do drive a BMW which should come w/ an auto dimming mirror or for sure a little tab that works wonders with bright lights behind you! if you wanna get back at us.. Set the tap pushed toward the window set your mirror and when it happends again flip the tab towards you and it should reflect back at him at certain times!! HAHAHA!!!

I have a set of 35w, and also have projectors. I admit I do have them set up high but I like to see at night! I get flashed sometimes but not enough that I think I need to lower them any. And I had one smart a$$ flash me so I flashed my highs which are silverstars that are shining into outerspace, He dimed quickly and then brightened his lights again. Needles to say I switched back to high beams and I have to say my highs were a lot brighter than his so I think I won!

If that doesn't work, perhaps you could pick up a pair of Stunna Glasses?

Can't see what you posted there Juggernaut

Anyway, I didn't mean to go into rant mode but it's a pet peeve of mine. The consideration for others is seriously lacking when headlights are aimed so high that they blind me. I have HIDs and mjp2 and I took the time to aim them so that they are not interfering with everyone else's ability to drive.
