sometimes at night when im on my way home from work(in my gen 3) with my headlights on(obviously) i get ppl flashing their brights at me as if they are telling me to turn my brights off...i almost never use my brights....when they flash at me...i flash them back

does this happen to anyone else? it just seems somewhat weird to me that they will go flash their lights at me when all those audi's and bimmers are out there with those bright blue looking xenons and such...

i know ppl flash when there are cops...but i look for cops when this happens and there are always none to be found.... :confused:

what kinda bulb do you have? Or do you have some kind of custom setup (HID, projectors)?

If ppl are highbeaming you, then you're lamp assemblies are prolly aimed too high. Try adjusting them to point a bit lower, especially if you have aftermarket bulbs.

well this never really happens to me in my camry but it does happen when i'm driving my gf's lancer. not sure why either

I've noticed that it seems like they are high beaming you when there are bumps in the road. but other then that i have no clue either

BTW. stock setup on the camry and lancer nothing close to HID.

It's because your headlights are not aimed correctly. It's a common problem in every car. Instead of straight ahead and down, they are pointed to the left.

I am actually writing up a purposal do be submitted to the state to require people to have their headlights aimed once yearly. It's dirty cheap, and will cause less problems. I hope it goes through...

interesting on the whole aiming rule. i would be pissed off if i got a ticket for not aiming my lights. that is a good question how do you aim them right? i always thought the driver side was suppose to be down and passanger side suppose to be forward.


as for the skyline camry.. it looks nice in the front but thats it.. side and back isn't great but nor would be the interior color but that is just my thoughts everyone has their own thoughts right :D
