So I parked my car in front of my house and left the lights on. Took my wife's car down the road and back home... those lights are sure bright. Granted it's raining and everything reflects more, but I feel guilty. I dropped them a little bit a couple weeks ago and only flashed once since (low sedan).
I bounce back and forth on swapping back in the halogens (actually bought phillips hid like) but more often than not I am blinded by on coming traffic too... and I convince myself not to.
Should I drop it them even more? I don't really have a good reference (garage)... just saw they move down and figured it would be ok.
Garage doors won't help for aiming, unless you actually measure aim, using one of the recognized techniques (flat ground, measure/mark beam center up close to the door with tape, then move back 10 or 25', etc...). My advice is to aim them onroad. I had my wife's car as a guide.
Can you take one or two pics with your low beams on a flat dark street/road ? Just so we can see how high the aim really is. Like I've said before, mine have the cutoff roughly 40' ahead.
FWIW : we drove on dark two-lane highways for a few hours last week, with quite a bit of traffic. I was not flashed once.
You mentionned being blinded by quite a few cars ; try to keep that issue separate from yours, because you can only control the beam on your vehicule, not what others do. I too find myself annoyed with a lot of OEM HIDs and some LED headlights out there, but also with an outrageous amount of cars with fog lights On that throw glare in others' faces. Fighting back with too much light is not the answer... but you can aim your headlights appropriately so you won't offend. And use the fog lights for fog.
