Maybe get rid of the bulbs and stop blinding other drivers?

When your check those lights on that building- slowly back up. If the lot is level (and most AREN'T so they will drain water) just be sure that your light pattern gets lower as you back up.

If you are running cheesy, hotspotted, glaring lights you are blinding people, and you are going to get continually flashed. I'd sure flash someone who is putting my road safety at risk.

I see lots of kids (yes some of the thirty-somethings still think they are kids) drop those blue/purple hid's in their factory reflectors and drive around blinding everyone like idiots.

lol @ eyeing it and calling it "lined"

I have halogen housings w/ HIDs and I've installed them properly so I don't blind people. Haven't been flashed yet. I've had a few tell me they think my car looks like an IS300 from a distance.

You get a kick out of it? We wonder how BMW drivers get a bad rep. If this is happeneing regularly you must have a problem. Doesnt matter how bright your lights are if they are aimed correctly. Your lights must be aimed too high. Get them aligned properly and have some respect for other drivers.

If you have had your headlight alignment checked and all is well, then you might want to go ahead and get rid of those two bodies in your trunk, lots of weight in your truck will tilt those headlights upů

We all get flash every once in a while, just give them a quick flash of the high beams and they will understand their mistake, if they high beam you back then let them be an a..hole and simply add them as the third body in your truck collection.

Im going out on a limb here, but the obvious problem is your attempt at aligning them. Take it to a shop, pay the $50 or whatever it is and have them done properly.

I have never been flashed in any of my BMW's and all three had factory aligned HID's.

just so you know, I saw a guy that was blinding everyone on the road, he turned and went into a futureshop parking lot, a guy followed him and parked near him. Waited till the guy went inside futureshop, and scratched the car and damaged his headlights.

Hopefully no one does that to you, but it's kind of warranted if you put your own aesthetic looks of your headlights before everyone's safety. Just saying.
