Since ive had these new halo projectors on for the last two nights ive had people flash their brights at me, im guessing to tell me to dim my lights. And there isn't much i can do for them, its just that their that bright. Next time i think ill throw on my high beams and blind them. What do you think?[paranoid]

I have had people stomp on their brake pedal repeatedly to "warn" me of the bright lights, however when I flash the high beams, they simply move over and fade out via the rear view mirror. No one has flashed their high beams at me coming from the opposite direction. It too will hurt slightly when I flash back.
Many people don't like them, but the view I get from the driver's seat - it seems the lights are pointed as low to the ground as possible. Sometimes it seems they are a bit too low to see some things coming up ahead of you.

Happens to me but I think my driver side headlight came from the dealer aimed a little high. Oh well, I'm not about to fix it.

I have the same problem except that I have H4 bulbs in both my headlights and foglights. Ford doesn't make an aftermarket bulb for the SVT foglight so I had to modify it to fit it in the socket. Probably not the wisest decision but oh well! At least I can see!

as most of you have alluded, the lights probably aren't properly aligned. OR, the lights are of low quality and produce lots of glare. I've had a few different sets of headlights on my last jetta and they were all high quality hellas that would outshine ANY halogen bulb out there...and I never got flashed.

The dissenters will stop bitching the instant their brand-new, HID-equipped car saves them from hitting a deer because they SAW the damned thing.

If your HIDs aren't properly oriented, they aren't doing what they're supposed to do. They should have a perfect spread and evenly light everything in it, and if other people are getting annoyed they're either stupidly jealous or you aren't getting the performance you should. If they are set right, then hi-beam the jealous ppl, they deserve it.

When I had HID's in my grand prix and I PROPERLY aligned them I got flashed and honked at 4 times in 2 blocks from my house [thumbd] so I had to keep them as low as I could, but I can't wait to get them in my projectors, I love being able to see at night... even at the expense of oncoming traffic [}:)]
