Anyone else getting flashed at ?

Does anyone else get flashed at (via oncoming car headlights....) when driving at night with just low beam on ?

I've had my XR6 for 5 weeks and its happened about 6 times and I don't even do much night driving.

Do my lights need adjusting or this just an XR / BA thing ?

They might be warning you for speedcameras.
Or maybe it's just their way of giving you the thumbs up !!

maybe you should get the level of your headlights checked!

should only be a 20 minute job at your dealership!

I would also guess that this means your lights are out of alignment.

Same thing happened to me after mine were "aligned", I noticed straight away though because i was lighting up the interior of other cars

I have been flashed twice since I raised my car 8mm - but only by Commodores with their fog lights on. So I just ignored them!

Since I got the Pursuit I've been getting flashed all the time. I am particularly fond of that brunette on Canterbury Rd near the Mitsu dealer......

I don't find them annoying like the VX fog lights, so I am yet to flash anyone Funnily enough, I think the AU's normal lights are bad, I always flash bastards because it's like they have their high beams on, especially those floating Forte's!
