    Yup, I have been flashed a few times. I always flash back.

    Old people or people who don't understand thats how new lights are. Even old cars that light housings that have faded or become dull could give off similar brightness (No way they can actually give off halogen/LED brightness) but still.

    They get pissy your highbeaming them, Happens to me once in a while.

    never happened with me yet, but I live in the city where you can literally drive without headlights and see the road just fine so the other drivers around here don't have that much contrast between dark and bright. I imagine in the country they would look pretty bright.

    no problems here, I love the auto bright light setting. seems to work very well

    maybe your head lights are aimed a bit too high?

    We have three new cars in the household, and it happens to us all the time.
    Traded in a 09 Super Bee with HID Lamps for the Hellcat, it was no different.
    If it bothers you, you should mud-up the lamps.

    I have experienced the same thing. Many flash their brights at me and I flash mine back. :cool: I have checked my light adjustment with the dealer and it is set to specification, so tough ti$$ies to the oncoming traffic.

    Sorry to hi Jack your thread, but has anyone, or does anyone know how to make the halo lights on the challenger bright all the time,, it's like it's backward,, take the charger for instance, during the day the led light is super bright white, but the challenger is very low lite,, but at night there bright( only if you have your lights off) I would like to have mine bright during the day... I know the challenger has drl lights and the charger don't, but someone, somewhere must know a trick to fix this

    Actually, during the day, on the Challenger, the white halo LED's are at their full brightness and when the parking lamps are ON or the headlights are ON, the halo's reduce their brightness by 50%. The thing is, the Challenger halo's when full bright are not all that bright, compared to the Charger. To make them any brighter, you would need to replace them with Oracle halo LED's (100% brighter) which is a major project.

    I know the lights are somewhat bright but I think the problem is there are so many morons out there that actually drive around with their hi beams on all the time so people just assume we do too. My theory is there are so many new immigrant drivers in US/Canada now that common sense driving etiquette has been lost. I don't flash high beams at other drivers now I just put mine on and leave them on when another driver has theirs on. They rarely turn them off when I do this so you know they are morons. At least I get to make them miserable too.
