High beam flash?

I've been getting this a lot recently. When I'm driving after sundown, I get flashed a lot, as if to tell me that I'm high beaming oncoming traffic. Now, I actually love giving them a flash of the true high beam, but I just wanted to know.. Does anyone else get flashed constantly for high beams that aren't??

Completely normal. You adjust them down a bit if you wish to.

Re: High beam flash?

I have not been flashed. Do you have HID's or the OEM headlights?

Re: High beam flash?

I think I'm too old and ugly to get flashed

Re: High beam flash?

Happened to me all the time w/ my old FJ. I had the extra set of lights on the bumper so anyone who flashed me thinking I had my high beams on really got blinded when I DID put them on.

Re: High beam flash?

Lots of threads on the topic:

Do other drivers flash high beams regularly at night when your low beams are on?

Do You Get High Beam'd in Your FJ ??

People flashing brights at me on low beam

Re: High beam flash?

I got flashed a several times with my stock headlights but I still replaced them with supposedly 90% brighter GE headlights and did not get flashed for a long time. Then I took a trip to see my family during Christmas break. I got flashed a lot, the moral of the story is southern michiganders are pansies I suppose I should adjust the beam down but I figure I will take care of that once I lift it, hopefully this summer.

Re: High beam flash?

Ive set my headlights to the second setting on the stalk so its basically the daytime running light. Is it as bright? Nope but then again neither were the regular lights since I lifted mine. Ive started to use my D2's aimed very low (use garage to set just below headlights) and so far no one has cared.

If I get an A-hole who is trying to make a statement- I give them a taste of the sun...all my lights at once.
