I have a 19 and I get flashed while running my lights on auto, just because my fog lights run in auto mode. And then I flash them to show I'm I am indeed not running high beams lolDoes this happen to everyone else with the new 2020? Constantly getting flashed with low beams on. Even if I keep the fog lights off people are still flashing me.
I would hope that most manufacturers are aiming their headlights as best as they can from the factory, but every single one is designed differently.I don't have a 2020 or one with LEDs but is it safe to assume that this isn't an aiming issue? I remember reading some article that claimed like 78% of headlights were poorly aimed. I feel like almost all headlights are aimed right in my face now, but I'm not sure that I'm not getting that eye issue (I don't remember what it's called) that makes lights at night seem brighter.
The people flashing are flashing because of the new LED's on the 2020 Si and the Type R's not the fog lights. Honestly most of us probably run the fog lights all the time just because it looks coolIt’s because LED lights are too fricken bright and it’s bullshit for drivers coming the other way. They should be regulated to a certain brightness and proper aiming kept in check by law.
LEDs are just so much brighter than halogens and people aren't used to them. And honestly they hurt to look at. Why outfit your vehicle with super bright LEDs for looks when nobody can look at it for more than 2 seconds in the dark before squinting their eyes and looking away?
I love DRLs and LED tail lights that don't blind you. They can be manufactured to not be stupid bright. Even a dim LED can be seen for miles.
Edit: i got more to say regarding LED headlights.
For those that argue that super bright LED lights are safer for the driver at night... How can they be safer if you are blinding incoming drivers on a 2 way road. They may veer into your path. Also shining brighter lights on a deer crossing the road or other animal is just going to freeze them and make them act even more erratically as you approach.
I drive 1000 miles a week in a shitty 2008 F150 that doesn't even have fog lamps. Is it nice to see further down the road with brighter headlights on a dark country road? Yes, but is it really necessary? Not really.
For those of you that ride with your fog lamps on 100% of the time:
Why? It’s just a waste of fog lamp bulb life. The fog lamps only illuminate the ground 3 ft in front of your car when the air is clear of fog or rain mist. Fog lamps are to help drivers in front of you see you further through the obstructed atmosphere, not help you see the asphalt 2 ft in front of the car.
Ok boomer. End Grandpa rant.
whew, i feel better now
Agreed it does look cool and I would prefer having them come on with my low beams, but if they might blind other drivers (even though they are not LEDs) I am willing to keep them off. Are they really aimed high enough upwards to bother other people at night?The people flashing are flashing because of the new LED's on the 2020 Si and the Type R's not the fog lights.
