if you're running lowering springs, that's why...your rear is prolly lower than the front, aiming the headlights higher and into people's eye making them think its ur brights. happened to me all the time.

or if you have a lot of weight in the back, lol

Would you consider lowering the head lights a bit?
I'm thinking of doin that to mine, since I get flashed at from time to time (and this is with no heavy sub, and haven't even touched the head light positioning yet, I think mine was adjusted wrong from the factory :rolleyes: )

I get flashed once in a while, with or without the two subs in the trunk. Our headlights are damn powerful from the factory. I just keep my hand near the headlight switch, for quick flash-backs ;)

I actually thinkg that too, sometimes. I really wish more people would do that here. It's very popular in Europe, and considered a natural part of being a courteous driver. I do it every time I see a cop while driving on a two-way road, but a lot of people jsut give me blank stares and seem confused :)

this thread is a rip off.

J/K.. I used to get flashed a lot. Once this guy in a lifted chevy truck saw me turn and then hit the highbeams until we passed... A few times I returned the favor and a lot of people who did that on my regular route to work stopped doing it. (I work night shift.)

I do that and I still always think that's what they are doing when I get flashed, so I am kind of dissapointed when I don't see a cop. :eek:
