Xenon headlights

Ok, so I'm absolutely fed up of everyone flashing me, presumably because they think I have my full beam on...

When car starts up it performs auto align, could there be a problem?

Factory Xenons?

I'd have the alignment checked by an MOT garage, easily done.

I have xenons and no one flashes me - your lights must be set too high.

Just pop into MOT center they might charge a 10 to get it onto ramp and check the height of the beam its a 5 minute job. Then if there is a prob you still have warranty time.
