Now, I know what you where thinking....and yes boobs are nice..but that's not where I'm going with this.... :D

I get flashed by opposing traffic ALL the time it seems because people think that I have my high beams on. It really just pisses me off. I do a lot of driving so I guess I get it frequently. The lights are stock and I don't even have flood lights. The only good that comes out of it is that I get some satisfaction in turning on the high beams for those people that flash me, so that they get thier retina's burned out! Those high beams are WICKED! :eek:

I get it alot as well, I'm also running Luminics. (Titaniums in my box, Hyper Whites in the wife's)


What's funny is I get flashed mostly by cars running HID's...... :confused:

I have not gotten flashed since I adjusted my headlight aim about 4 weeks ago, I didn't realize how high it was until I got it aimed lower.

I have aftermarket Phillips clear h4 bulbs...

Funny just tonight I had a car slow down, change lanes and as I passed them they turn their high beams on me. So I flashed the high beams to show them they weren't on and they turned theirs off and dropped WAYYYY back.

First time flashed in the xB.

I get flashed quite a bit. I have Silverstars in place of my stockers. I wonder if the TRD springs...or any lowering spring, changes the back angle enough to cause our lowbeams to shine high. I know when I throw on my highbeams they seem to be too high in elevation....just above the road surface way ahead. I think I will try lowering the headlights a bit.

I've wondered the same thing. I haven't been flashed but at times it seems like I can see way too far down the road with my Silverstars.
