IMO people who flash you for having bright HID lights just haven't learned to not stare at them yet. It's really quite simple, if someone has bright lights then look at the fog line instead of looking right at the dumb lights.
Get the HIDs.
He already has them, but is having second thoughts after getting flashed a few times. The aim does look high there @ambiguity
, as David pointed out, but I'd like one or two more pics is possible, because that picture is showing a lot of obstacles ahead and it's hard to see where the beam is going to the right. Cutoff looks to be at 80+ feet there, so yeah a little high.
I find that most cars with HIDs are not assaulting my eyes, except when they crest over a hill or big bump, of course. Xenon bulbs are really bright, so projector aim is critical. Our KL projectors also have a narrow beam with intense hotspot straight ahead, so anybody oncoming getting a direct dose of that will, as @Array
once eloquently said, get some sizzle in their retinas
Some recent GM trucks have badly aimed - or badly designed LED headlights that are really annoying
I really enjoyed the night driving on our trip to Montreal last week, and I clearly remember how much I hated the lights on the KL last year (halogens) on a similar trip. In late winter, roads are almost always wet from melting snow/ice and up here they use dark colored sand in some areas, so forget painted lines to help you out at night...
